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. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, there is more than one way to test for antimitochondrial antibodies and different methods do not give interchangeable result.
Wish you good health!
