Normal CLL Lab Values

In science and medicine, information is constantly changing and may become out-of-date as new data emerge. All articles and interviews are informational only, should never be considered medical advice, and should never be acted on without review with your health care team.

Understanding how to interpret your blood tests will empower you to ask appropriate questions and get the follow-up needed to ensure your best care.

Normal values will vary from lab to lab.
