Reference ranges are provided for certain tests and are designed to help you interpret results. A normal result does not guarantee that you do not need medical attention. An abnormal result may not necessarily be abnormal for you. Your complete medical history must be considered.

You are responsible for contacting a physician regarding your test results, if necessary.
