Question: test results


 docc - Fri Oct 01, 2004 7:45 pm

Can somebody tell mean what these test results mean?

MONOCYTE RESULTS=11.7 NORMAL RANGE= 6.0 - 10.0

ABSOLUTE MONO RESULTS= 1.0 NORMAL RANGE= 0.2 - 0.8

TOTAL PROTEIN RESULTS = 8.3 NORMAL RANGE= 6.2 - 7.8

ALBUMIN RESULTS = 4.9 NORMAL RANGE= 3.6 - 4.6

ALT/SGPT RESULTS = 71 NORMAL RANGE= 8 - 54


AS YOU CAN SEE ALL OF THESE RESULTS ARE HIGHER THAN THE NORMAL RANGE. WHAT EXACTLY ARE THESE AND WHAT DOES IT MEAN THAT THEY ARE HIGH. THESE WERE ALL DISCOVERED THROUGH A BLOOD TEST. THANKS FOR ANY HELP. DOCC

User avatar Hello:
Have you asked your doctor what they mean? Lab normal ranges vary and what might be normal for one person may not be normal for another. A general interpretation of results is all that can be given online. This does not mean you have a particular disease only that further investigation may be warranted in a certain area. Here is a very general or basic idea of what the tests are used for:

Monocyte=used to rule out infection, bone marrow injury, leukemia
Albumin= used to rule out liver or kidney diseases
Alt/SGPT=used to rule out liver damage
Protein=used to rule out liver or kidney disorders

Having tests results slightly higher than the reference range does NOT mean you have a certain disease. It merely shows the doctor that he needs to explore a certain area and /or he can rule out areas to explore if the test was normal.
Please ask your doctor what these test results mean in your case.
Regards,
Carolyn
