Oct 9, 2006
Hey Dr. M.,
1 very short q. What is the 'normal' range of alt/ast/albu/bilirubin/creatinine for a male, 52 yo?
Mnay thanks for your help, Dr M. You are wonderful to help so many so selflessly.
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.
