My Calcium level was normal. There should not have been any problem. My Calcium level is normal even now. Theoretically, I should have no problem.
Medical science has made great advances. But the mysteries that are hidden in the human body have not yet been solved. Will they ever be solved? I doubt it. As of now, at least, we should all be wiser than to simply take the values shown in a lab test at face value and treat ourselves based on that. There is a lot hidden behind those numbers.
This puts an additional burden on doctors. Doctors cannot afford to treat their patients based on lab tests alone. Careful study of the patient's history, keeping abreast with the latest that is happening and tons of common sense are inevitable to truly try and address the patient's problems.
Doctors must treat individuals as individuals, each of who is different. The numbers are there merely to serve as guidelines, not to dictate the ultimate course of treatment. The numbers are different for different people. And it is not possible for each person's 'normal' range to be clearly established. This makes medicine more of an 'art' than an exact 'science'. What needs to be looked at more closely is how a patient is 'feeling' than what his or her lab tests are showing.
Patients should be more proactive in their own treatment. They know their own bodies best. They know when they feel well and when they don't. They are the best interpreters of the numbers. Patients need to do their research and help the doctors help them.
