carolineq created the topic: Bloodwork
I am very interested in getting some bloodwork. I have my annual GYN appt. next Monday 23Aug2010. I'm sure the thyroid will be checked and normally, they do a standard blood draw to check serum creatinine and cholesterol.

I may ask him to also check my ALT, GGT, IgE, serum phosphorous and serum magnesium. The purpose of the assessment in my mind is to get a value of where I am in my fasting.

If one were highly toxic, what bloodwork would reveal their toxicity, if any?

Thank you, as always, Dr. Kruger!

You are the best!

Unfortunately the real measure for toxicity is a DYNAMIC evaluation: You need tests before and after to show a difference. My experience is that ALT is an excellent measure if you do it before your fast and just before or after breaking it again. Uric acid typically increases during a fast anyway, as this is derived from purines, or nucleic acid breakdown which occurs when you lose weight anyway. Total serum albumin (a protein) will help interpret the comparisons as this would reflect the extent of dehydration.
