Let's say you're at your doctors office and you hear someone say, let's get him a CCP, or I think he needs an HDL. That's when you might get a little nervous, because you have no idea what that stuff means. Now, a new website can clear the confusion and put your mind at ease about what the doctor is trying to find when he orders blood work.
All you need to do is jot down the jargon, and then go to labtestsonline.org. That's where you can find a good description of hundreds of lab tests as well as a wide range of conditions and other tests the doctor might prescribe.
