This is a very common question we face every day. But we always tell the patients that the current system in traditional medicine is to treat the labs or sometime just the symptoms alone. But in personalized medicine the emphasis is given to a three dimensional approach:
1. What you tell us
2. What your labs tell us
3. What we observe in you
The questionnaire is a very important tool because each and every question tells us which hormones or hormone is responsible. This way we have a very clear picture of what you are feeling from inside. Usually these questionnaires are filled when you are completely free and not preoccupied with anything else except filling the questionnaire.
Personalized medicine is not just personalized prescription, but it is personalized evaluation and personalized labs. Usually we decide what lab work needs to be done only on the basis of the questionnaire. On the other hand most of the patients are not even aware of the fact that their hormone imbalance can be because of the prescription medication they are taking.
If only lab values were sufficient to make the diagnosis and decide treatment, in that case there is no need to see the physician as the normal lab values are mentioned in all the reports. Now the question arises are these so called normal ranges of lab values appropriate to make decisions? The answer is very subjective. We think if we are having falling within the range we are fine but this is not right. These lab ranges are usually very wide and have two extremes even within the normal range we call them high normal and low normal.
The only thing we look for our patients is to find what is optimal for them to look and feel the best. Always try to listen to what is not told to you in the regular visit. Your labs are normal you are fine. But they really mean that your labs are normal for your age. Which means that if you are 50 and you are feeling like 50 or even 60 there is no problem? Well that’s true this message is being conveyed so strongly that we all think that we do not have the right to feel like 30 when we are at our 60’s because aging is natural and we all have to age.
Having said that we always emphasize that aging is inevitable yet modifiable. We decide how long and how healthy we wanna live. Believe me it is in our hands so why let somebody else tell you that you are aging and there is nothing which can be done to take care of it.
