Many possibilities: The website given below provides a list of causes of elevated ldh. However, it may be elevated if you exercised before the blood test. 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. Http://www. Nlm. Nih.

What does "above high normal" mean on a blood test?

What does "above high normal" mean on a blood test?

Numbers are numbers: Numbers are just numbers, so the significance of them must be looked at in the context of a patient's real-life situation. From a purely numbers point of view, "above high normal" usually means that only ~3% of the NORMAL people in the community get that test result, and the other 97% of the NORMAL people in the community would get a lower result. So, most people with such a result are not normal.
