"Rethinking Health Predictive Biomarkers is a presentation by Dr. Russell M. Jaffe that took place on April 26 2016 at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco, CA.
Laboratory testing today is overly focused on statistics—health professionals tend to compare their patients’ results to statistical norms, which are skewed to a generally unhealthy population. This presentation highlights eight functional tests that are predictive of outcome, focus on goal values rather than normal values and clinically more useful in therapy. These functional, predictive tests assess individual needs that, when met, can minimize risk and enhance outcomes—critical for sustained health. When results are not at their "best outcome, least risk" goal value, it provides us opportunities to improve upon what we eat and drink, think and do, and to nudge the biomarkers back to their goal values.
