Some of my tests are out of range. What should I do?
Please note that the ranges shown in this report are merely guidelines. Healthy people may sometimes fall outside the expected ranges. Furthermore, these tests have been done for insurance purposes and not under optimal clinical requirements. Guidelines for their interpretation may be different than those followed by your physician or healthcare provider. We are not trying to make a diagnosis and would encourage you to simply discuss these results with your physician or healthcare provider before coming to any conclusions.
If you have questions about any of the results in your lab report, please consult your physician or healthcare provider. They can discuss your concerns with you and provide perspective based on your health status.
How can I email my lab report to my physician or healthcare provider?
Your lab report can be saved as a PDF file which you can attach to an email. Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure that the report is sent securely to the desired recipient.
I have subscribed to email notifications, but I am not receiving any emails.
There are several reasons for this:
1. Access to your lab report is subject to your insurance company's subscription to this service. If you do not receive an email notifcation and have no access to your lab report, contact your insurance company.
2. Dynacare releases lab reports only when the personal information you provided during registration matches your personal information on your Lab Authorization Form. Please ensure that the information provided at registration as well as the lab identifer match the information on the Lab Authorization Form. You can update any information by accessing your User Profile page.
3. The registered email address may differ from the email account you are currently using. Check your registered email address in the User Profile section and make the appropriate changes, if needed.
4. The email is being redirected to your SPAM email folder. Check your Spam folder, highlight the myLabWorks email message and select Not Spam.
My spouse does not have access to my lab report.

If you want to share your access to a family member or a healthcare provider, you may choose to save a PDF copy of the report. You then have an option to print or email it to the recipient of your choice.
What does expected range mean?
The expected range for a given test is generally based on the results that are seen in 95% of the healthy population. Sometimes patients whose test results are outside the reference range may be healthy, and some patients whose test results are within the reference range may have a health problem. Consult your physician or health care provider if you have questions about your lab results.
