Response from Dr. McGovern

All laboratories establish their own normal ranges based on bloods from healthy volunteers. Hence, every lab has their own set of cut-offs so you must receive your lab result in the context of a "range" that is normal for that particular laboratory.

In other words, every lab is different.
