In brief: Means nothing alone

As a pathologist who's devoted a lifetime to lab medicine, my teammates and i are always reminding people that lab results mean nothing whatever in the absence of a history & physical exam. Please don't take this the wrong way, and i appreciate your proactive approach to health.
But no one can do anything with this. Ask instead, "could high Albumin out-of-range be from dehydration?" etc.
