About the Book

How many times have you done your medical checkup and the doctor/healthcare provider sends you to do your lab test/bloodwork and says, “If there is a problem, I’ll let you know?” Or you get your results and you are told you’re doing fine. But what does that REALLY mean? What are the numbers that make it fine?

Let’s face it, life is busy, but when it comes to our health, we need to be proactive. We need to know and understand what our body is telling us.

Do you know the answers to these questions about your health?

  • What is my Baseline Blood Pressure?

  • How does my Doctor/Healthcare Provider measure my results from the lab test/bloodwork?
  • What numbers are they looking for?
