I must confess that I haven't figured out how to upload lab results - most people just type them in. One question - have you had a CBC lately, and if so, what are your platelet results?

If your results are available to you online then most will allow you to download them as a pdf file. Or you can cut and paste sections from the online report. Open the pdf file or online report with Chrome browser in a different tab or a pdf reader that allows simple cut and paste function. Simply highlight the lines of text you want to grab NOT the whole document with personal info. The macro to copy the text is by pressing ctrl+c keys. The macro to paste the text from the clip board is ctrl+v


In windows you can still use notepad to save text that you cut and paste from a pdf so you do not have to do the post completely in the a browser, you can pre select and organize the information so that it is easier to accomplish.


It is much harder using a iPhone or an iPad. But a real computer can easily do the job. With Linux or even Android it is much easier.  Windows with Chrome set up correctly is a breeze and is standardized across platforms.



Here is a snippet from one of my old sets of tests post tx.


WBC 6.8 4.0-10.0 10*9/L RBC A 5.46 4.20-5.40 10*12/L Hemoglobin 163 135-170 g/L Hematocrit 0.48 0.40-0.50 L/L MCV 89 82-98 fl MCH 29.9 27.5-33.5 pg MCHC 337 300-370 g/L RDW 14.3 11.5-14.5 % Platelet Count 163 150-400 10*9/L


As you can see it will remove line formatting but all you have to do is put the spaces back in like this, to make the values easier to read, or remove any lines that have personal info.


WBC 6.8 4.0-10.0 10*9/L
RBC A 5.46 4.20-5.40 10*12/L
Hemoglobin 163 135-170 g/L
Hematocrit 0.48 0.40-0.50 L/L
MCV 89 82-98 fl
MCH 29.9 27.5-33.5 pg
MCHC 337 300-370 g/L
RDW 14.3 11.5-14.5 %
Platelet Count 163 150-400 10*9/L


Hope this helps.
