Conventional lab ranges are based on a bell curve distribution of test results. What this means is conventional ranges are based off the "normal" person and those ranges get wider and wider as the population gets sicker and sicker. Optimal ranges are based off of what is best for optimal health.
Looking at optimal ranges of lab tests can provide valuable information about body function and processes. It's one of the tools I use to identify risk factors and for lifestyle recommendations for optimizing health. By taking a look at all the results together, it can provide pieces to a build bigger picture of the person's health as a whole.
If you would like more information about lab tests and how they can help you identify risk factors, let me know. I would be glad to help you!
