Explain My Lab Results Like I’m 5
Have you ever received a lab report back and felt like you were reading a foreign language? Us too.
Confusing medical terms go beyond what we picked up on ‘House’ or ‘Grey’s Anatomy’. The reports need to be vetted by experts, who often are not immediately available. So we sometimes Google terms to try and understand what reports are trying to say.
With all the technology advancements in the world, hopefully sometime in the near future, there will be a way we can access our health records and read digestible, meaningful results without having to wait for a doctor.
