Abnormal Test Results Require an Explanation

When you find out that any test result is not normal stop and contact your physician to get an explanation. If you can’t reach your physician find out if your doctor’s practice has an on-call physician service that you can use.

Medical test results, health portal data, and online health information must be explained in context with your health and life to have value. You may even be seeing test results before your doctor. Looking at a test result on a health portal that says that your result is not normal can have an explanation ranging from the test is wrong to your very ill to something very minor caused the result.
