I'm not sure exactly what the tests are, but I'm trying to figure out the lab work. For example, what my platelet count number means. I'm new to all this. Looking at these lab results is like a foreign language to me.

Try this link also. This is the one I use. You can enter the acronyms of the test or from the drop down menu you can search by the name of the test. There is also more information about the test once you have selected one. Hope this helps.

Thanks again Julie!

I am going to try and see if I can figure out some of the tests and such. If I have anymore questions, I know where to ask. :)

Hi again!

I finally received my medical records yesterday. It was a 7 week ordeal, but that's a whole other story! :)

Anyway, I was wondering if there was a thread to help me decipher the different tests and numbers.

Thanks!
Kris
