TEST DATA RANGES

TESTS
BLOOD PRESSURE 120-130 over 60-70 is the target, (see Circulation, Blood, Lymph above)
BASAL TEMPS  97.8-98.2 is optimal. If you are cold and you have normal Basal Temps it could be your
hypothalmus which controls body temp (your Central Nervous System-ego pressure )
PH test the urine & saliva, URINE – 6.8 ph is good (kidney filtration moves out acids)
BLOOD SUGAR – most labs say 100 – 120 is normal. we like to see 70-85, 109 in the  “new normal”. (see Circulation, Blood, Lymph above)
CHOLESTEROL (HIGH) = (see Circulation, Blood, Lymph above) Elevated cholesterols means elevated acids, means restricted lymph flow. means restricted kidney adrenal functions, can turn to placquing (see eyes) if its chronic. Cholesterol is the #1 anti acid of the human body so it uses it to protect itself. Labs say normal is Total Cholesterol:120-200mg/dl    LDL;  <130mg/dl (calc) HDL:>=46mg/dl     Triglycerides: <150mg/dl

STOOL – light in colos see liver – hemoglobin – alternate 1 btl liver/gb and 1 blt pancreas  – for a few rounds.

THYROID (see Gland Info)
TSH Thyroid Stimulating Hormone – DRM
DRM – Standard International Units: 0.9-4.5 mIU/L
Caution: <0.9 or >5.0 mIU/L
Standard U.S. Units: 0.9-4.5 µIU/ml
Caution: <0.9 or >5.0 µIU/ml
Lab says (0.4-4.2 adults, 0.7-6.4 children) find out if the thyroid is working properly: TSH causes the thyroid gland to make two hormones: triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). T3 and T4 help control your body’s metabolism. Find out whether the thyroid gland is working properly. Stress, long term illnesses, some drugs affect the test.
DRM – TSH is a hormone produced by the anterior (frontal portion) pituitary gland, in response to low levels of circulating thyroid hormone (T4 and T3), as it stimulates the thyroid to produce additional T4 (which is converted to T3).
Dr. Morse has found TSH, T4 and T3 to be sometimes highly inaccurate indicators of thyroid function. TSH by itself, however, can be useful as an indicator of pituitary gland function.
For maximal accuracy, combine this test with:
Basal body temperature test.
Checking for signs and symptoms of multiple glandular weaknesses.
In both irides: Check for chronic bowels or radii solaris in the 11 o’clock to 1 o’clock region.
Indicator(s):
If experiencing symptoms of thyroid weakness, and TSH is low, consider pituitary gland weakness.
If experiencing symptoms of thyroid weakness, and TSH is normal or high, consider thyroid weakness without pituitary involvement.
If TSH is high, consider hyperactive pituitary gland.

Not DRM= High TSH levels may be caused by:
An underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism). Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is the most common cause of primary hypothyroidism.
A pituitary gland tumor that is making too much TSH. This is uncommon.
Not taking enough thyroid hormone medicine for treatment of an underactive thyroid gland.
Low TSH levels may be caused by:
An overactive thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism). Causes of hyperthyroidism include Graves’ disease, a type of goiter (toxic multinodular goiter), or a noncancerous (benign) tumor called a toxic nodule.
Damage to the pituitary gland that prevents it from making TSH (a condition called secondary hypothyroidism).
Taking too much thyroid medicine for treatment of an underactive thyroid gland.
Pregnancy during the first trimester.

Reverse T3 (RT3) — also known as Reverse Triiodothyronine, elevated levels can show an underactive thyroid (hypo)
Thyroid PeroxidaseHigher levels of thyroid peroxidase are common in those with Graves’ disease and Hashimoto’s disease.
Thyroglobulin Antibodies – elevated levels can indicate Hashimotos, Graves, Hypothyroid, Lupus, Type 1 Diabetes, Thyrotoxicosis.
T3, Free or total  triiodothyronine  (2.3-4.2 pg/ml) hormones produced by the thyroid gland. The free or total T3 test is usually ordered following an abnormal TSH, particularly if the free T4 test is not elevated. Signs & symptoms: increased heart rate, anxiety, weight loss, difficult sleeping, tremors in hands, weakness, hand tremors, light sensitivity, visual disturbances, puffiness around eyes, eye dryness, irritation, buldging of eyes,
Free thyroxine (free T4) (0.8-1.8ng/dl)hormones produced by the thyroid gland.  tests are used to help evaluate thyroid function and diagnose thyroid diseases, including hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism, usually after discovering that the thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) level is abnormal.

KIDNEYS
Creatinine DRM
DRM Standard International Units: 26.5-53.4 µmol/L
Caution: =61.8 µmol/L
Standard U.S. Units: .3-.6 mg/dL
Caution: =.7 mg/dL
NOTE(S): In clinical work, Dr. Morse has noted creatinine levels settling within the range of .3-.6 as a result of detoxifying and rebuilding the health of kidney tissues. Higher levles shows kidney damage. Creatinine is a chemical waste molecule that is generated from muscle metabolism. Creatinine is transported through the bloodstream to the kidneys. The kidneys filter out most of the creatinine and dispose of it in the urine. Creatinine has been found to be a fairly reliable indicator of kidney function. Elevated creatinine level signifies impaired kidney function or kidney disease. As the kidneys become impaired for any reason, the creatinine level in the blood will rise due to poor clearance of creatinine by the kidneys. Abnormally high levels of creatinine thus warn of possible malfunction or failure of the kidneys.
BUN  DRM Blood urea nitrogen (BUN) is an indication of renal (kidney) health. LAB:Normal ranges 1.8-7.1 mmol/L.
DRM – Standard International Units: 1.428-1.785 mmol/L
Caution: <1.428 or >1.785 mmol/L
Standard U.S. Units: 4-5 mg/dL
Caution: <4 or >6 mg/dL
NOTE(S): In clinical work, Dr. Morse has noted BUN levels settling in between 4 to 5 mg/dL as a result of bringing the body into a state of health and consuming a low protein diet.
The main causes of an increase in BUN are: high protein diet, decrease in Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) (suggestive of renal failure).
DRM –
Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN)
Urea is formed by the liver as the finale by-product of protein catabolism and is [hopefully] excreted out via urine. BUN is a reflection of the ratio between the production and excretion of urea. BUN is a test that is used (preferably alongside a serum creatinine test) to evaluate kidney function.
Standard procedure guidelines require the patient to restrict consumption of protein-rich foods 24 hours prior to the test.
For maximal accuracy, combine this test with:
Serum creatinine test.
Blood pressure checkup on both arms.
Indicator(s):
If BUN is substantially elevated, consider decline in kidney function hence inability to also filter sediment.
BUN TO CREATININ LEVEL Optimal Ratio: 10:1 – 20:1

ADRENALS
DHEAS DHEA Sulfate: (19-231mcg/dl)   The primary reason for testing for DHEA Sulfate is to determine the performance of adrenal glands. DHEA Sulfate is a minor male hormone produced by the adrenal gland.
PROGESTERONE  Help diagnose problems with the adrenal glands and some types of cancer.
0.5-2.3 FOLLICULAR PHASE DAYS 1-14
2.0-25 LUTEAL PHASE DAYS 15-28
POST MENOPAUSAL <0.5
1ST TRIMESTER 4.1-34.0
2ND TRIMESTER 24.0-76.0
3RD TRIMESTER 52.0-302.0

HEART
Homocysteine (<10.4 umol/l) AND Heart Disease Homocysteine is a common amino acid (one of the building blocks that make up proteins) found in the blood and is acquired mostly from eating meat. High levels of homocysteine are related to the early development of heart and blood vessel disease. In fact, an elevated level is considered an independent risk factor for heart disease. High homocysteine is associated with low levels of vitamin B6, B12, and folate and renal disease. Research has shown, however, that reducing your homocysteine levels with vitamins does not reduce the risk of heart disease. Doctors aren’t sure how or even if homocysteine increases the risk of heart and blood vessel disease, but there appears to be a link between high homocysteine levels and damage to the arteries, leading to atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and the formation of blood clots.

REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM
Estradiol, or more precisely, 17ß-estradiol, (Estrogen E2) is a human sex hormone and steroid, and the primary female sex hormone. It is named for and is important in the regulation of the estrous and menstrual female reproductive cycles. Estradiol is essential for the development and maintenance of female reproductive tissues[1] but it also has important effects in many other tissues including bone. While estrogen levels in men are lower compared to women, estrogens have essential functions in men as well
Follicular Phase: 19-144 pg/ml
Mid-Cycle: 64-357
Luteal Phase: 56-214
Post-Menopausal: < or =31

Testosterone, Total (2-45 ng/dl) The pituitary gland controls the level of testosterone in the body. When the testosterone level is low, the pituitary gland releases a hormone called luteinizing hormone (LH). This hormone tells the testicles to make more testosterone. Made mostly in the testes, small amts in the adrenals (men and women). Your doctor may want you to do a morning blood test because testosterone levels are highest between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m.
MEN (270-1070ng/dl)
WOMEN (15-70 ng/dl)

Free Testosterone  Men: 50-210 pg/ml  Women: 1.0-8.5 pg/ml –
The testosterone level for a postmenopausal woman is about half the normal level for a healthy, nonpregnant woman. And a pregnant woman will have 3 to 4 times the amount of testosterone compared to a healthy, nonpregnant woman.
Hi values in men can be from cancer of the testicle or adrenals. In women, from cancer of the ovaries or adrenals or from polycystic ovary syndrome PCOS
Low Values in men slow development or injury to testicles, estrogen treatments, pituitary problems, long term illnesses, Klienhoffer, Down syndrome, liver disease (cirrohis), treatment for cancer ofthe prostate.
In women – underactive pituitary gland, Addisons disease, loss of ovary function thru disease or surgury, medicines like corticosteroids or estrogen.
Being very owerweight, chronic pain, some pain meds.

Estrone may be measured in women who have gone through menopause to determine their estrogen levels. It also may be measured in men or women who might have cancer of the ovaries . testicles , or adrenal glands .Estrone is considered a weaker form of estrogen. It is typically produced by special belly fat cells, and is the major estrogenic form found in naturally-menopausal women who are not taking HRT.
Adult Female Reference Range for Estrone
Follicular Phase: 10-138 pg/ml
Luteal Phase: 16-173
Postmenopausal: < or = 65 pg/ml
Pre pubertal 1-9 yrs:<= 34 pg/ml
10-11 yrs: <= 72 pg/ml
12-14 yrs: <= 75 pg/ml
15-17 yrs: <= 188 pg/ml

PSA PROSTATE SPECIFIC ANTIGEN  DRM
DRM Mayo Clinic Laboratory Upper Limit Range:
Age (years):     PSA Upper Limit (ng/mL):
<40     < or =2.0
40-49     < or =2.5
50-59     < or =3.5
60-69     < or =4.5
70-79     < or =6.5
> or =80     < or =7.2
DRM Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) is produced predominantly by cells within the prostate gland.
When the prostate is affected by inflammation (acidosis), toxicity or surgical biopsies, the damage caused to the prostate tissues results in an increase of the PSA enzyme into blood circulation. Therefore, PSA tests can be used to evaluate the degree of inflammation or damage caused to the prostate.
The higher the PSA, the greater the degree of inflammation (acidosis). The higher above 5.0 ng/mL, the greater the likelihood of severe prostate tissue degeneration (prostate “cancer”) will be.
Indicator(s):
If PSA levels are >1.0 ng/mL, consider adrenal glands, kidneys and the large intestines.
Optimal Range: 0.0 – 1.0 ng/mL
NOTE(S): Dr. Morse prefers PSA levels of <1.0 ng/mL, with 0 (ZERO) being ‘perfect’, regardless of age.

LIVER DRM
Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP)
Standard International Units: 70-100 u/L
Caution: <70 or >100 u/L
Standard U.S. Units: 70-100 u/L
Caution: <70 or >100 u/L
Aspartate Transaminase (AST)
Standard International Units: 15-25 u/L
Caution: <15 or >25 u/L
Standard U.S. Units: 15-25 u/L
Caution: <15 or >25 u/L
NOTE(S): Dr. Morse prefers SGOT/AST levels within the range of 15-25.
Alanine Transaminase (ALT)
Standard International Units: 15-25 u/L
Caution: <15 or >25 u/L
Standard U.S. Units: 15-25 u/L
Caution: <15 or >25 u/L
NOTE(S): Dr. Morse prefers an SGPT/ALT levels within the range of 15-25.
DRM Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) is particularly concentrated in liver, kidney, bile duct, bone and placenta tissues.
ALP will increase as a result of acidosis, especially when affecting the aforementioned tissues, but also as a result of:
Normal bone growth.
Healing of fractures.
Chemical medications.
Aspartate Transaminase (AST) is  present in liver, heart, skeletal, kidney and pancreatic tissues.
Alanine Transaminase (ALT) is present in heart, skeletal and kidney tissues.
Both AST and ALT will increase as a result of inflammation (acidosis) of the liver. Remember to factor in chemical medications, alcohol and tobacco smoking.
Generally, if it’s deterioration of the liver, you will see an increase in all three liver enzymes

BLOOD
Blood Platelets DRM
DRM – Standard International Units: 155-200 X 10^9/L
= 155.000-200.000
Caution: <50 or >700 X 10^9/L
= less than 50.000 or greater than 700.000
Standard U.S. Units: 155-200 X 10^3/mm^3
= 155.000-200.000
Caution: <50 or >700 X 10^3/mm^3
= less than 50.000 or above 700.000
NOTE(S): Dr. Morse prefers platelets equal to or greater than 200.000. BCCA sets 155.000 as the low-end minimum. The Detox Miracle Sourcebook sets 415.000 as the maximum. Below 20k you will bleed out.
Platelets are produced in the bone marrow. Reserve platelets are stored in the spleen and distributed when they are needed. Platelets (thrombocytes) are necessary for:
Proper blood clotting (blood coagulation in hemostasis to stop excessive bleeding from damaged or ruptured vessels).
Vascular integrity.
Vasoconstriction (narrowing of blood vessels which slows or blocks blood flow, increasing blood pressure).
For maximal accuracy, combine this test with:
Red blood cell count.
White blood cell count.
Indicator(s):
If platelet count is low (thrombocytopenia), but white blood cell count is normal or high, consider the spleen. If platelet count AND white blood cell count are both low, consider bone marrow.
Following an encompassing health assessment, some tips for addressing a low blood platelet count (thrombocytopenia) include:
1.) Having one or more servings of freshly made juice each day, all of which should include beetroot to aid the kidneys, spleen and liver (thereby having positive impact on the blood and platelets).
2.) Having a nourishing astragalus root infusion daily to enhance and strengthen bone marrow tissues, which will aid in normalizing blood platelet and white blood cell production. Astragalus root also has an affinity for the spleen, liver and adrenal cortex.
3.) Implementing the ‘Bone Marrow Support’ (no link), [or] ‘Ultimate Immune‘ (bone marrow strengthener) and/or ‘Spleen‘ herbal formulas, if needed.
If blood platelets are elevated (thrombocytosis), Dr. Morse suggests general detoxification of the body with focus on cleaning out the spleen and liver. A high fruit diet and the ‘Blood‘ herbal formula will aid greatly in this process.

Hemoglobin DRM Standard International Units:
Males: 140-150 g/L
Females: 135-145 g/L
Caution: <100 or >170 g/L
Standard U.S. Units:
Males: 14.0-15.0 g/dl
Females: 13.5-14.5 g/dl
Caution: <10.0 or >17.0 g/dl
DRM Hemoglobin is the oxygen-carrying protein found within red blood cells. The hemoglobin binds with the oxygen when red blood cells pass through the lungs. The hemoglobin test result is thus used to evaluate how well the red blood cells are able to transport oxygen around the body.
Indicator(s):
If hemoglobin is low, consider adrenal glands, liver, spleen and bone marrow.
If hemoglobin is high, consider acidosis resulting in lower levels of oxygen (which the body may attempt to counter by increasing number of red blood cells – and thus hemoglobin – to compensate).

WHITE BLOOD CELL COUNT DRM
Standard International Units: 6.0-8.0 X 10^9/L
Caution: <4.0 or >13.0 X 10^9/L
Standard U.S. Units: 6.0-8.0 x 10^3/mm^3
Caution: <4.0 or >13.0 x 10^3/mm^3
NOTE(S): Dr. Morse prefers a white blood cell count of at least 4.0.
White Blood Cell COUNT DRM
White blood cells (leukocytes) are produced in the bone marrow and operate as part of the body’s immune system.
It is normal for WBC levels to sometimes fluctuate. Therefore they can fall into the low-end or high-end on some days. If you receive abnormally low or high test results, make sure to re-do the test to see if levels have fallen into place since the first one.
For maximal accuracy, combine this test with:
Red blood cell count.
Blood platelet count.
Indicator(s):
If results show low white blood cell count, consider bone marrow.
If results show elevated white blood cell count, consider systemic bodily acidosis causing damage to cells.

RED BLOOD CELL COUNT DRM
Standard International Units:
Males: 4.2-4.9 X 10^12/L
Females: 4.0-4.5 X 10^12/L
Caution:
Males: <3.8 or >6.0 X 10^12/L
Females: <3.5 or >5.0 X 10^12/L
Standard U.S. Units:
Males: 4.2-4.9 X 10^6/mm^3
Females: 4.0-4.5 X 10^6/mm^3
Caution:
Males: <3.8 or >6.0 X 10^6/mm^3
Females: <3.5 or >5.0 X 10^6/mm^3
DRM Red blood cells (erythrocytes) (RBC) are tasked with the transporting of oxygen from the lungs, out to the rest of the body, and transporting carbon dioxide from bodily tissues back to the lungs to be expelled. Red blood cells are produced in bone marrow tissues.
For maximal accuracy, combine this test with:
White blood cell count.
Indicator(s):
If red blood cell count is low, consider bone marrow.
If red blood cell count is high, consider acidosis resulting in lower levels of oxygen (which the body may attempt to counter by increasing number of red blood cells to compensate).
IMPORTANT: If red blood cell count is VERY low, such as when dealing with aplastic anemia, Dr. Morse may sometimes recommend small amounts of high quality, organic meat until no longer needed.

IRON  DRM Standard International Units: 8.96-17.91 µmol/L
Caution: <5.37 or >35.82 µmol/L
Standard U.S. Units: 50-100 µg/dL
Caution: <25 or >200 µg/dL
Iron (Total Serum)  Iron is an essential component of hemoglobin (an oxygen-carrying protein found in red blood cells) for the transporting of oxygen and carbon dioxide. Most of the body’s iron will be in hemoglobin form, while the remaining iron is stored in the liver, spleen, and bone marrow tissues.
For maximal accuracy, combine this test with:
Serum ferritin levels
Hemoglobin test
Blood pressure checkup on both arms
Blood glucose test
Blood platelet count
Red blood cell count
White blood cell count
Indicator(s):
If iron levels are low, consider adrenal glands (especially, due to mineral utilization factors), spleen, liver, and bone marrow. If iron levels are elevated, inquire if the individual is supplementing with iron (in which case getting off of the iron supplements ASAP is encouraged.)
Green juices containing parsley, dandelion greens and spinach can be incorporated to increase consumption of organic, bioavailable iron. Also, the following are excellent sources:
Yellow dock root tincture or decoction (see Iron Tonic)*
Oregon grape root tea or tincture
Moringa oleifera tea or powder
Stinging nettle herbal infusion (optionally include rose hips)*
Burdock root herbal infusion*
*See Botanical Reference Section for instructions on how to make a standard decoction and herbal infusion.
But remember not to just treat the problem.
If iron levels are high (including hemochromatosis), Dr. Morse recommends a general detoxification with emphasis on astringent fruits (grapes, lemons, watermelons, etc.) and green juices containing ample amounts of cilantro (coriander), parsley and dandelion greens. The ‘Chem/Metal Detox‘ herbal formula can be used as an addition to a comprehensive herbal and dietary regimen.

FERRITIN DRM Standard International Units:
Males: 33-236 ng/ml
Females: Premenopause: 10-122 ng/ml Postmenopause: 10-263 ng/ml
Caution: <8 or >500 ng/ml
Standard U.S. Units:
Males: 33-236 µg/L
Females: Before menopause: 10-122 µg/L After menopause: 10-263 µg/L
Caution: <8 or >500 µg/L
Ferritin is a protein which stores iron and releases it when the body is in need of additional iron. Since serum ferritin levels offer a reflection of the body’s stored iron, it can therefore be used to assess how much stored iron the body has. Most of the body’s ferritin is located in:
Liver tissues
Spleen tissues
Skeletal muscle tissues
Bone marrow tissues
For maximal accuracy, combine this test with:
Hemoglobin test
Blood pressure checkup on both arms
Blood glucose test
Blood platelet count
Red blood cell count
White blood cell count
Indicator(s):
If ferritin levels are low, consider adrenal glands (mineral utilization factors), spleen, liver, and bone marrow.
If ferritin levels are high, inquire if the person is taking iron supplements.
