Blood test and skin prick test result interpretation

Currently, the blood test and skin prick test result interpretation only applies to blood test results processed by MedLab South, New Zealand. This is Dr Ford’s personal opinion on the blood test results. This interpretation should not be construed as a medical consultation. If you have significant symptoms, then you should see your local medical practitioner.
