Hi Demi,

those look all fine to me from a VERY quiick glance.

The top lot are mainly liver enzymes and all look normal.
The blood count all looks fine too.
The bottom lot are electrolytes and kidney enzymes and all appear normal.

Don't know about the serum C reactive protein, not sure what the reference range is for that.

Bear in mind that my knowledge of exact human reference ranges is not precise. If you were a cat or a dog then I would know exactly. However I do know that the reference ranges are pretty similar and you are bang slap in the middle of most of them.

The only thing is that usually the reference ranges are printed on the form with the results as they vary slightly from lab to lab, so are you sure you don't have the reference ranges anyway?

Hope that helps.

Ah thanks Ruthie, that's brilliant. Our lab's changed here and all you get is a printout on A4 showing exactly what I put above. We know that DHs results have come back abnormal, but his GP is dragging his feet getting them to us to have a look, so we don't know exactly which have come back abnormal.

Thanks for your help, I was going a little crazy trying to work it all out xxx

the serum C reactive protein looks ok too hun - as a rough guide anything above 10mg/L indicates an infection or that you have an inflammatory response going on somewhere so less than 5mg/L should be fine :)
