As a registered user, you will be able to save the interpretation of your test results. It will be available in your Account. This will help you avoid having to reenter your lab values if you ever need to have your test results interpreted again.
While interpreting test results, it is important to take into consideration such factors as age, sex, pregnancy, etc. Also, lab values may be expressed in different measurement units.
The results of a test may depend on the chemical reagents and equipment used by the laboratory, meaning reference ranges depend on the testing method. In this case, it is essential that test results are interpreted based on the reference ranges used by the laboratory that performed the testing.
Perhaps, your blood test was performed with the use of a hematology analyzer that cannot detect immature forms of neutrophils. Enter your values into the Segmented Neutrophils field.
A relative change in the white blood count occurs when only the percentage of any form of leukocytes is outside the reference range. An absolute change in leukocytes requires counting each type of cells per 1 liter of blood (measurement unit: 109 cells/L). For more information, please see the description of leukocytes.
Only relative values (%) need to be entered in the table, while absolute values are calculated automatically.
