Repeat test: Sorry you're sick! Any interpretation of that result depends on how soon after the gatorade the test was taken, Also, no one diagnoses a disease on the basis of one test (in most cases). The test should be repeated when you are better. Also, being sick can effect it and everything may be fine later, unless the docs told you something else that makes them worried. Follow-up with your doc.
