A/G Ratio: is the ratio of albumin to globulins.

Overview

The A/G Ratio is an antiquated test that measures the ratio between albumin and globulins in the blood. It is one of a very few test numbers I pay any attention to.

I use it as a measure of where someone is at between birth and death; meaning, where you are on the curve.  It is NOT to be used for predicting the future, but to establish where you are at.

Range is 1.0 – 2.32 and the higher the number, the better. It measures the amount of albumin and globulin that leaked past the kidney nephrons into the urine. It is a good indicator of the condition of renal glands (kidneys) which loose efficiency with age.

You must specifically REQUEST this test if you want it included on a blood panel, and prepare for justification with your practitioner because he will not know this one and will ignore your request.  Remember, the patient know NOTHING!

Another useful test is called: CRP which stands for C-Reactive Protein which measures LOW-GRADE inflammation in the body’s terrain.  This test is common; however, few practitioners seem to know what to make of it unless the numbers are extremely high.

Ideally, you want a CRP reading of ZERO as in -0-. Anything is too much. Normal range is .5 – 10. If you suffer in any way, know that your CRP is elevated because it is a measure of inflammation and you can’t have pain or suffering unless you have inflammation. A reading of 1.0 is extremely high and should not be ignored.

Another useful measure of your terrain system is pH of urine.  See Acidity/Alkalinity in Glossary link below for a full discussion of terrain pH.

Lastly, a VERY IMPORTANT test is your blood’s ferritin level which is an indirect measure of iron STORED in your blood.  Approximately 80% of iron is stored in blood.  See Special Insights, How Iron Toxicity Affects Your Health by clicking hyperlink.

Common measures of blood pressure and pulse reflect systemic stress and hormonal imbalance between insulin and leptin.  Read Special Insights, Change Your Food Habits, Change Your Life by clicking hyperlink.

Personally, I ignore most medical tests because the standard answer is never, WHY?  Instead, all you hear is: take the purple pill 3x/day.  They don’t have a clue WHY you supposedly have the so-called, medical condition.

Your job is take care of yourself and steer clear of the sick-care system.  Once they instill you with fear and uncertainty, they own you!
