Understanding Your Lab Results

2004

Credits

We hope that this booklet has been helpful and will allow you to better understand why laboratory tests are such an important part of your healthcare. However, keep in mind that interpreting laboratory tests can often be a complicated task. Work closely with your physician to interpret test results and to understand just how they could affect your course of treatment. Always feel free to consult your healthcare provider if you have questions about your laboratory report.
