All the results were negative/normal except one test. The doctor said it was no big deal and is normal. Does anyone know if that will effect anything or if I should re-do the test to get a normal reading? Thanks
Are you talking about receiving a non-negative/normal result for one of the requested tests, or is it for another test that was just performed at the same time? I know my doctor performed much more than what was requested just because it was part of a panel of tests that are run together.
Regarding the specifically requested tests:
1. If you have HIV, you will not be qualified.
2. If you failed your drug or alcohol screen, you will not be qualified.
These first two are pretty straight forward and easy to understand.
This one is a little different:
3. If you have protein or glucose in your urine, you need to have a test showing that these values are 0. There are many medical reasons why you may not show 0 for this, but the sheet does state that you will need a retest to prove that you can show.
If #3 is the one you showed a positive result for, retest following some of the guidelines in the packet.
If it is just some random other test that you failed, it probably won't matter or you can ask your doctor to provide a limited set of results.
