Thanks for the query. Clinical results by themselves may not be sufficient and needs to be understood in terms of clinical conditions. Many a times clinico-lab-correlation is needed to interprete a particular result. The same values may be significant for one patient and may not be for other. Medicine is complicated and the best thing to do is to meet the doctor who ordered the tests for proper understanding.
