  1. Hi Dr. Ruscio,
    Are there functional lab ranges for intrinsic factor antibodies or are the convention lab ranges ok to go by?
    For some lab results, the functional range is a little more narrow than conventional.

    I had the antibody test done for intrinsic factor and it came back negative , the results for gastric parietal cells came back less than 20.

    Also, I have autoimmune thyroid.
    Thanks
