Blood work, Leukocyte Esterase negative but abnormal?
Patient : I had lab work done. Everything was normal....except:
Test name: LEUKOCYTE ESTERASE, Result: (asterisk) TRACE, Flag: ABNORMAL, Reference Range: NEGATIVE
I realize that the reference range is negative but should I be concerned that it's flagged "abnormal" and has "trace", whatever that means, as the result??
