Blood work

I think one of the best ways to help diagnosis and missed/delayed
diagnosis is to get off the thoughts that if the bloodwork isn't all
trashed up, highs/lows way, way off, then that means the patient is
fine and faking it or they are crazy.

I remember seeing an article where a lady sued Harvard. She had been
telling them of problems. Finally, and she stated, she got sick of
telling them and quit doing it, and then suffered complications
because the doctors didn't listen & didn't act on the problem. The
most striking part was the risk manager/lawyer saying I wish she
hadn't quit saying anything.

When you know you should take bloodwork in consideration of the
patient and not some statistical ranges, when you know that
THEORETICALLY healthy people made up the ranges but that humans can
have different ones, and ignore stuff, don't you think that maybe
there's an issue right there?

Look at the patient ... a patient who was an athlete competing in
national competitions, who eats healthy, has the best support system
(God bless my church family & JC), and tells you things that fit
within medical research of an issue that they've had before and are
known to be at risk for ...

my question here is why we aren't looking at that simple thing first?
Before tort reform, before anything else, why aren't we changing the
heart and mindsets? Or are they the hardest to change?
