Patients should take an active role in making sure that test results are available to their health care providers and are encouraged to review and keep a copy of their lab results for personal reference even if they’re completely normal,” she added. “Knowing and understanding your lab results can assist you to make informed decisions while discussing treatment options with your doctor and help you focus on staying healthy.”
