Here is the paper and image referenced in the previous video. Really enjoyed this read and thought it hit on a lot of “not so discussed topics” regarding bloodwork. 🧠
The idea of bloodwork sounds cool. Draw some blood, measure somethings and know everything... the fact is that it’s much much more confusing than that. .
Before I say anymore, no I am not a doctor, no I don’t draw blood, no I don’t interpret blood, yes I read about a quite a bit of this and learn from those that actually practice in this realm. .
Blood work, like just about anything else in the human body is complex, non-linear and interconnected. No one single biomarker is going to give you the full story...
When looking at biomarkers, it is common to see them in “groupings”. You might see a list used to assess hydration, nutrition, inflammation, hormones, and so on. The way these biomarkers are assessed are through groupings and understanding of biochemical pathways in context to the individual (certain biomarkers may be expected based specific lifestyle/dietary habits). .
Because of the lack athlete specific ranges, linearity and all else expected, context for a lot of this is King. That’s why in the paper and as I agree with, blood work should be taken at specific times with intent and understanding as to why it is being taken. Context to training cycle, time of year and so on all play a role. 🧠
This is an exciting area for athletes and coaches. However from experience, it really does take someone skilled with a directed intervention to make it work. Really amazing seeing firsthand what we do @resiliencecode
and how directed it is. .
