What does your health screen report tell you?

health_screen_booklet_sQuest Laboratories’ Health Screen pamphlet accompanying your health screen report serves as a guide to provide brief but useful information about your lab test results reported on your health screen.  Please consult your physician for an in depth explanation and interpretation of your results.

Please note the following points when reading the pamphlet: 

  1. Your health screen report may not comprise all the lab tests mentioned in this pamphlet.  Your doctor will have tailored the health screen based on your medical history and health condition.
  2. The majority (about 95%) of a normal population test results will fall within the normal range.  About 5% of the normal population test results may be slightly above or below the normal level.
  3. It is an acceptable fact that a normal person’s test results may fluctuate at different times although still fall within the normal range.  This occurrence may be due to diet or other factors.
  4. Health conditions are not conclusive solely based on laboratory test results. All lab results should correlate with your medical history and other clinical findings.
