The app explains in clear language everything you need to know about each test and why your doctor likely ordered it.
Learn about the health implications of each of your test results including the relevant high-normal, low-normal, abnormal, and optimal explanations.
Head off disease before it occurs and learn if your health interventions are actually working.
Lab Test Analyzer provides personalized diet, lifestyle, and supplement recommendations to help optimize your health based on your labs.
We look well beyond the normal ranges, applying the latest peer-reviewed research to identify optimal ranges to lower the risk of death and disease. Available for more than 100 of the most common lab tests.
Lab Test Analyzer provides unlimited access to analyzing any of our 250 markers, with more being added all the time. For a full list of available lab tests, click here. If we don’t have a marker, paid members can request them to be added to our database.

"I have been looking for a tool to track trends in blood labs. It has been helpful in tracking down a cause to a couple of health concerns."
"Great way to organize and analyze to make informative steps to improve quality of life. A method to identify disease markers. This information will help me to better discuss with physicians what steps need to be taken to protect my health."
"It was reassuring to know the optimal levels and to compare your ranges with my lab. For example, I panicked when my lab said my fasting insulin level was low; your report says it's optimal and that makes more sense to me. Thanks for all your work and making it easy to input."
"Lab Test Analyzer cuts down the amount of guesswork and research that would be required of me if I wasn't using the application to formulate a plan to live optimally. I've always been one to take on research on my own time (which I don't mind) but it is informative and motivating to have the means to consistently track, unpack, and improve levels. I'm incredibly glad to have stumbled upon this application, along with Selfhacked in general. I will most definitely check out Selfdecode next!"
"Great to see results over time. Nice to have limits more personalized than standard (wide range) lab limits."
"For decades I have had low iron and B12 levels. Self Decode pinpointed the fact that I am genetically predisposed to low levels (this could have saved time and exploration at the doctors) I have taken iron tablets for years and have been told that my levels are fine: however I have been experiencing quite dramatic hair loss as well as other symptoms and have run my recent blood test through Lab Test Analyzer to see what the level was. At a level of 42 you have it as on the low side. Having consulted Dr Google I have read on a forum that many women won't experience hair regrowth till they have levels over 70. I have combined Self Decode with LTA and hair strand test for intolerances. This has suggested intolerance to corn, wheat, dairy and alcohol. which has helped me to create a picture of the potential causes for my IBS and other symptoms. Combined with your results I have a much greater understanding of why I have felt unwell for the last 35 years and of the measures I can take to help myself."
"I've been having a lot of labs lately in an effort to diagnose a medical condition. Of the dozens upon dozens of labs, the doctor only explains a very small sub-section of the results. Your site helps create a fuller portrait of what MIGHT be going on."
"Having this makes me feel more in control of my health and reassures me that my doctor knows what he is doing :-)"
"Very helpful in understanding what the test results really mean. Most doctors don't explain any of it, they don't have the time to give a patient."

At SelfHacked, we’ve seen over 1,200 clients with complex chronic health problems. We find that our most successful clients take charge of their health, by seeking to understand what’s going on and taking action on the diet, supplements, and lifestyle changes that are necessary for them to get healthy. The current medical industry discourages it, especially when medical visits are so short that doctors do not have the time to explain every single lab test to you.
Lab Test Analyzer brings together all the available information about ab tests from medical literature, including the information that may have become available after your doctor graduated from medical school. Not only do we explain what the labs are, but we also explain to you the reasons why they’re ordered and what your results mean to you. In addition, you will also have a list of both natural and medical options to improve your health based on your lab results, which you can implement in consultation with your doctor.
More often than not, if you’re struggling with some health issues that the doctors cannot pinpoint, you may have normal but suboptimal results. Understanding which of your test results are suboptimal can often give you insights into what’s malfunctioning in your body, even when you don’t have a diagnosis yet. For several of our customers, these insights led them to become successful health detectives for themselves.
Normal ranges are usually values that 95% of healthy people fall into. They help doctors diagnose issues and decide on treatments. But normal ranges don’t tell you what’s optimal for your health and longevity. They don’t take into account large population research looking into the risks for disease and mortality. And, in some cases, they are created using populations that contain lots of unhealthy individuals, and therefore don’t reflect health at all.
Some softwares and alternative practitioners will offer optimal ranges, but these are often arbitrary values in the middle of the normal range. We have done the actual research to identify the levels with the lowest risk of disease and mortality for our optimal ranges. And if your levels are suboptimal, Lab Test Analyzer will give practical lifestyle, diet, and supplement recommendations to help you get back on track.
Normal ranges may differ somewhat based on the laboratory doing the analyses and the methods they are using. Normal ranges for some markers may also differ geographically.
More importantly, we provide optimal ranges, as well as normal ranges; and optimal ranges are not given by the majority of labs. Then again, many sources will claim to provide optimal ranges, but these will mostly be arbitrary values within the normal range. Our optimal ranges are based on extensive research into scientific studies focused on longevity and reduced incidence of disease. And we provide references for all our research! You can read up on our references by following the links provided in the app in the following format: [R].
