Does anyone know of chart that shows some guide lines to all blood test results, like what range is good/bad. I have my results but I don't have complete trust in the chart that came with my results, I know its sad that I don't trust the doctors office

I use this website: http://labtestsonline.org/understanding/

It explains how all our favorite labs work. It doesn't provide reference ranges or a chart, but it really helped me understand what the doctor is talking about, as well as figure out things the doctor didn't bother to explain. Tons of info. It helped me make sense of all the abbreviations, too.

Hope that helps!

No easy solution. Various laboratories have different normal ranges for each test. Also note that non-U.S. labs often use different units of measure. E.g., blood sugar of 100 mg/dl in the U.S. will be reported as 5.6 mmol/l.
