    Please provide the range supplied by the lab that performed your test to evaluate whether your results are within normal limits for that test. Ranges can be different from laboratory to laboratory and we have no way of knowing what that range is or what the test result might mean without the range being included. Lab ranges can vary given type of testing equipment, chemical reagents used and analysis techniques.

    Here's the preferred format for providing test results and range, using this as an example.

    Free T3 3.4 (2.3-4.2)

    Thank you.
