who here is really awesome at reading lab reports?

the test is tumor marker called alpha-fetoprotein is a level of 4.6 ng/mL and that it's out of range but dr didn't indicate HOW out of range, only that this test will need to be repeated again within 6-8 weeks ... this is my husbands liver and I've already left about 4 messages w/ the dr. bleccch.... and I've googled the hell out of it and cannot find the healthy range. HELP!

  • From what I've found, anything below 5ng/mL is normal...
