Never use your lab results to remedy yourself! Laboratory tests results are only a small part of a broad array of tools physicians use to diagnose and manage health disorders or disease condition. Moreover, a full medical examination, images (MRI, X-Rays, CT Scans, etc.), patient health history, and other diagnostic tools are required to help your doctor diagnose and treat diseases.
Realize that you are not educated nor trained in laboratory medicine and you do not have medical knowledge.
Request your healthcare provider about a copy of lab results to take home with you. Since these are your medical results you have a right to them.
Understand you may not have the actual results in your hand. Your lab results may be incorrect and include false values due to laboratory mistakes.
Most laboratories are not allowed to hand over lab results to patients due to privacy regulations. Always call your healthcare provider for your lab results.
Test's reference ranges may differ from lab to lab due to equipment and methodology differences. Also reference intervals may vary from area to area. Frequently, what is considered a normal result range in your area is not totally the same somewhere else.
