I am having trouble getting an answer regarding what tests were done, I have my results and some are flagged high but i have no idea what these are I just have the intials.
these are the tests I would like names for if possible.

MO ( one that was high )
MO# ( also flagged high )
MHC ( also a high one)

Also, If anyone could tell me what a histogram is. I have this on my results page on a chart, WBC histogram, RBC histgram, PLT histogram.

Here is an informational link that explains some information regarding hematology studies. Keep in mind that lab values vary somewhat from one lab to another.
