A blood test is a laboratory analysis performed on a blood sample that is usually extracted from a vein in the arm using a needle, or via fingerprick.
Reference ranges for blood tests are sets of values used by a health professional to interpret a set of medical test results from blood samples.
A basic metabolic panel measures sodium, potassium, chloride, bicarbonate, blood urea nitrogen (BUN), magnesium, creatinine, and glucose. It also sometimes includes calcium.

Minor Bug fixings & Included easy Sharing
Pretty Face, But Needs Help
I started taking notes as I worked my way through the app, but soon realized these folks haven't hired me as their editor, proofreader or programmer, so I'm not going into detail here. Suffice it to say:
If you create an iOS app, you should keep the platforms in mind; iPhones work in portrait mode, but iPads also work in landscape mode. Any app I use more than twice needs to work in landscape mode on my iPad. So this one is not long for my world.
I found the graphics pretty but distracting, just due to the flashing movement, but I keep thinking of the many patients I've known who could not tolerate the sight of all those needles and all that blood. This app is for them, not for medical professionals.
I really do love the intention here, and the basic foundation. But it needs professional help. Even the home screen on the iPad has a problem. The introductory paragraphs are at the bottom of the screen, in a text box which does not scroll, so this useful information just stops dead. And then
Good PowerPoint presentation, but that's basically it…
The easiest/best thing you could do to make this app popular would be to allow basic tracking of lab results. When I get a HbA1C, all I really want to know is how my results compare to history, to the public at large, and what that means. You've got the what that means part down, now just start with a basic spreadsheet to record results over time, maybe a simple line graph, and you're on your way.
Second, the flash animation at the top takes up way too much real estate. Just show it on the opening page, or allow us to slide it upwards.
Third, simple change, is navigational bars. When the text runs off the page, I haven't yet figured out how to scroll. Plus I used the app more than once before I figured out there was more than one card in each set.
With those three minor changes, you'd add a star to this review and make yourself a mandatory app in my health workflow. Thanks!
Good info, but the ads often cover the text ... Makes it sort of useless.
