Welcome to Empowher. We are here to answer health related questions, but not to interrupt the results of blood tests.

Your healthcare provider, who ordered the blood tests, is your best resource for reviewing these lab results. With lab reports, the normal range for each value is indicated. By looking at your test report, you should see the normal range used by the laboratory.

Your healthcare provider ordered these test to help determine the cause of your symptoms. He or she knows your medical history and the findings of any previously preformed physical examination.

It would be unethical of any one other than your private healthcare provider to interrupt or comment on the lab results.

I do hope that the cause of your symptoms is soon determined.
