Feeling good and avoiding dread diseases means you have to know some stuff

Dread diseases come at us from two directions. First, we don’t arm our bodies for battle by supplying the weapons they need. Second, enemies break in and create chaos, keeping our bodies from their appointed tasks.

In either case, it takes a while for disaster to strike. Meanwhile, we don’t have a clue we’re in trouble. We just bop along, singing a song, whilst believing we’d know if a problem reared its ugly head.

Well, no. Unless we take steps to know what we need to know, our first clue will almost surely be when we reach the disaster we’re headed for.

I don’t have to tell you this isn’t even close to a good plan.

We need to figure out how to, as they used to say in the old Western movies, “Cut ‘em off at the pass!”

Which means we have to learn some stuff.
Our bodies talk all the time

So, first off, we need to know what our bodies are telling us. Sometimes even yelling at us. Oh, yeah, our bodies talk to us in a whole bunch of different ways.

And now that you know that, you need to pay attention. Well, that’s tricky business because most of us don’t understand the language.

Oh, if we get a fever, we know something’s up. Same with a big time rash or a digestive system that insists on dancing the fandango.

Sometimes, though, our bodies are just yelling for help. And it’s not a matter of rashes and the like, but fatigue and weakness that tell us our bodies are struggling.

Figuring out the “something’s up” stuff takes effort, perhaps even a lot of effort. But then, avoiding disaster would seem to be worth some effort, don’t you think?
But our enemies are silent

But, and this is the second thing we need to know, while our bodies talk up a storm about what’s going on, our enemies don’t. They sneak around trying to work their woe without giving us a clue about what they’re up to.

Oh, they’ll eventually cough up some noticeable symptoms for us to ponder, but we really don’t want to go that far down the road before we get a warning.

It’s never a good idea to let bad guys roam around in the dark doing whatever they want to do.

I mean, we’re talking dread diseases–heart disease, cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s–that don’t play fair.
One good way to find out what’s going on

A quick, relatively inexpensive–with good do-it-yourself possibilities–way to take a peek at what’s going on inside is the blood test.

Understanding Blood Tests talks about four got-to-have blood tests for everybody and four tests that are more situational. Are there more blood tests than these eight? Oh, indeed. About a bajillion and a half of them, but these are the ones you’re most likely to run into–and the ones you really need to understand.

Each blood test has its own chapter to explain why it’s given and what the results mean.
“I’m tired of my doctor always seeing blood tests as a path to medications, so I started getting independent blood tests. I wanted help in figuring out the resuts, and Bette Dowdell’s Understanding Blood Tests put the power in my hands to decode blood tests and know what the results mean.”
- Rich Hamilton, AutomationBasics.com
Four tests you have to get

The four gotta-get-em tests are the Complete Blood Count, the Comprehensive Medical Panel, Homocysteine and C-reactive protein.

I know, I know, those names make your eyes glaze over, but before you nod off, let me just mention the homocysteine test is the only way you know whether you’re headed for a heart attack or not. The talk’s all about cholesterol, but homocysteine is where it’s at.

And the C-reactive protein tells you whether disease is setting up shop, which sure strikes me as a good thing to know.

From the moment we’re born to our last second on earth, our bodies move heaven and earth to protect our blood. The blood, after all, is where the life is. Your blood will rob the rest of your body blind to get what it needs. So the Complete Blood Count alerts us to how things are going, blood-wise.

Just the name “Comprehensive Metabolic Panel” can bore you into a coma, but the results can keep you from wandering into the swamp of despair. The CMP is about balance, balance, balance. And so are our bodies.

Since out-of-balance points the way to disaster and death, our bodies work tirelessly to keep everything in balance. The CMP brings you news from the war front.
Four situational, problematic tests

Now we get to the tests for thyroid, adrenals, diabetes and heart.

Almost everybody will run into most, if not all, of these tests. We need to know their strengths and weaknesses, where we can rely on them and where we can’t and the possible outcomes that give concern.

This is a case where knowledge really is power.
Reading the tests

Whether the doctor orders the tests or we do it on our own (which the book talks about), we need to know how to read the results. Just because we fall within the normal range, doesn’t mean all’s well. Some test results–homocysteine and calcium, for instance–give us early warnings while still “normal.” And one test result could affect what another result actually means. Etc.

Don’t depend on a hurried, harried doctor to pick up any nuance. That’s your job. We can’t rely on others to do what we need to do ourselves.

Who has more interest in your health than you? Who has more to lose with your death than you? You’re worth more than the time it takes to check out a blood test.

Now, reading blood tests may sound as complicated as all get out, but it’s really not. At least, not once things get explained. And Understanding Blood Tests is all about explaining what you need to know.

Understanding Blood Tests includes two, real-life, sample blood tests, one from a woman we’ll call Ruth and one from a man we’ll call Mike. Along with their actual test results, you get commentary and my suggestions of what to look for.

Now I’m not a doctor. Ruth and Mike are not patients, just take-the-hill people looking for information.

Putting everything together makes Understanding Blood Tests an excellent reference book. A detailed index makes it easy to find what you’re looking for.
Why should you listen to me?

A month before my first birthday, a drunk driver severely damaged my pituitary gland–the king of the body’s universe–and my endocrine system never walked in health again. For years, doctors insisted I was fine.

And why not? People with endocrine problems–thyroid, adrenal, etc.–don’t look sick. In fact, we look pretty darned healthy.

I’d mention fatigue and get a comment about going to bed on time.

I’d talk about my unreliable brain and hear about paying better attention.

I couldn’t even get taken seriously when most of my hair fell out–and what was left changed colors.

My symptoms were shrieking that my endocrine system was whacked, but nobody noticed.

So I set out to fix my own health. It took years, but I made it.

Now I share what I learned so you won’t have to reinvent the wheel and spend years and years digging through research for clues.
