Lab Case ~ 33 year old female in wheelchair from initial damage from the antibiotic ciprofloxacin

  • Today, we're taking a deep dive into a lab case of a 33-year-old woman who had been struggling with neuropathy and tendon pain that left her in a wheelchair. She was also experiencing difficulty gaining weight and muscle wasting. Despite previous efforts with another functional medicine practitioner, her anxiety and insomnia persisted.

  • Dr. Hugh emphasizes the importance of running basic labs before specialized tests, and in this case, they discovered that the patient's white blood cell count was elevated at 10.7. The normal range is between 5.5 and 6.5, indicating an infection or chronic inflammation. Further symptoms such as low blood pressure, pounding heartbeat, and light and sound sensitivity confirmed inflammation in her body.

  • Antibiotics and vaccinations may have played a role in damaging her body, contributing to chronic inflammation as the root cause of her symptoms. Dr. You is thrilled to see progress in her healing journey and reminds us that there is hope for those suffering from chronic health conditions or those affected by antibiotics and vaccinations. With functional medicine and proper guidance, you can uncover the root cause of your symptoms and regain your health.
