Understanding lab test values and ranges

When trying to understand what your lab test results mean you should consult with your healthcare professional.

Reference values are dependent on many factors, including patient age, gender, other medical conditions, test method, etc. Numeric test results can have different meanings in different labs.

The lab report containing your test results should include the specific reference range for your test(s). Please consult your doctor or the lab that performed the test(s) to obtain the reference range if you do not have the lab report.
