When looking at your lab results, on the left side of the page, you will see the name of the tests performed, the next column is your level for the test, the next column will list low/high/alert/critical if your level is out of the normal range, the last column will provide you with the normal ranges.
When looking at your lab report from left to right, you will see 4 columns:
The name of the tests performed
Your in-range levels for each test
Out-of-range results (low/high/alert/critical)
Normal reference ranges for the tests you performed
See the image below for reference:
The normal ranges will allow you to see if you are on the borderline of being out of the normal range by comparing your level to the range listed for the test.

Then, you’ll be directed to the Health Insights page, where each one of your results is clearly explained.
You’ll see an explanation of what the test is, how it helps, and an explanation of your current levels for the test. You’ll get colored flags depending on your results. Plus, you’ll be able to see your current level on a low to high scale. See below for reference:
