Understanding Your Results
Your health care provider should always be your main point of contact for understanding and interpreting your lab results. In addition, there are web-based tools and apps that allow you to further explore your tests and lab results. These tools may allow you to “dig deeper” on your own schedule and do not present the time constraints you may encounter with a scheduled doctor’s appointment. These tools should be used to supplement – not replace – consultation with your healthcare provider and may also be helpful in organizing thoughts and questions you have for your provider about your lab results.
