There are many things that can affect your results and which may give a temporary abnormal reading. Common things include: illness or injury which can affect your white blood count and inflammation markers; recent vigorous exercise which can affect your muscle and liver enzymes; what you have recently eaten which can affect your triglycerides and your blood sugar - even a high protein meal may affect your kidney markers. Some nutritional supplements like biotin can also affect some results. We will advise you if you need to pause any supplements before taking your test.
It is very common to have some markers which are outside the normal range for entirely innocent reasons. If our doctors suspect that a recent illness or activity has affected some of your test results they will mention possible causes and recommend you repeat the test in a few weeks.
