LDH: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, the results you provided indicate anemia but are not appropriate for a diagnosis of hemolysis. It would have been helpful to have the result of LDH enzyme level.
