    Get ahold of a Diagnostic and Laboratory Test Reference book(Mosby's). They should have one either at school or at your workplace. The book will tell you values and explaination of test and phisiology involved, as well as what conditions produce low or high values. Hope this helps. Good luck with your paper.

    I tried typing these into www.google.com and found many sites that will explain these.


    Good luck.

    You can try www.webmd.com I love that site, and I have been able to find many things. If it can't help you now, it will in the future. Good Luck

    SGOT = serum glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase
    AST = aspartate aminotransferase

    SGPT = serum glutamic-pyruvic transaminase
    ALT = alanine aminotransferase

    MCV = mean corpuscular volume
    MCH = mean corpuscular hemoglobin
