Healthtech-1 Lab Reports - New decision trees March 2024 πŸ§ͺ

We’re thinking about how best to combine messages together to avoid messaging patients several times for individual blood test results - this is coming!

Liver function tests

πŸ’¬
If normal Your recent liver function blood test was normal. For more information please visit https://labtestsonline.org.uk/tests/liver-blood-tests

ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate)

πŸ’¬
If normal Your recent ESR blood test (a marker of inflammation) was normal. For more information please visit https://labtestsonline.org.uk/tests/erythrocyte-sedimentation-rate-esr

Note:

ESR increases with age, and some labs don’t account for this in the reported range. We could calculate an age-adjusted upper range of ESR

Adjusted cutoffs are for men = age in years / 2 and for women = age in years + 10 /2

Please get in touch if you would like us to develop this feature.

Renal profile (U&Es)

πŸ’¬
If normal Your recent renal profile (kidney) blood test was normal. For more information please visit https://labtestsonline.org.uk/tests/renal-panel

Note

The gut off of eGFR > 90 is quite strict, we may be able to relax this in certain groups - interested in your opinion on this - please get in touch!

Coeliac screen

πŸ’¬
If normal Your recent coeliac disease screening test suggests you do not have coeliac disease. For more information please visit https://labtestsonline.org.uk/tests/coeliac-disease-tests

Note

This test can result in false negatives if the patient is on a gluten free diet, or is IgA deficient, though most screening labs will now identify IgA deficiency at the same time.
