Blood Work for Athletes | Dr Tommy Wood, MD, PhD

Should athletes turn to blood tests to improve their performance? Blood tests can help athletes measure specific biomarkers related to performance and give them an edge over the competition.

The unfortunate truth is that not many people know the ins and outs of blood work. In this episode you will learn about the specific markers to order when getting blood work. We look at :

Blood glucose regulation
Lipid Panels
CMP: Liver and Gallbladder Markers
CBC, Iron, and Inflammatory Markers
sex hormones
Thyroid Markers
and more....
