Medical - Medical (general) / Laboratory report
French term or phrase: N, H, B, F
Lab report of "valeurs usuelles pour adultes" consists of a table of 9 columns. From left to right
-name of parameter tested
-expressed as (e.g. mmol/l)
-column with the letter "N" for each entry
-column with the letter "H" or "B" for certain items (e.g. H = créatinine, phosphatases alcalines; B = TSH, T3L, T4L)
-1st column of test results
-2nd column of test results
-column with the letter "F" for certain entries (e.g. Phosphatase, alkaline, ASAT / SGOT ALAT / SGPT GGT)
-last two columns contain results for certain items, but not all

As there is no key to explain the letters N, H, B, F, I would appreciate your input on what these are, rather than me guessing and getting it wrong. (N= normale, H=haut, B=bas?) There is not other indication of what these might be, other than the results contained in the table.

TIA for your help.

Explanation:

Male 70 – 120 μmol/L

The N does seem to be the usual/normal level.

TSH, T3L and T4L do vary by age. TSH for example
10 jours à 2 ans 2,6 à 10,8 pmol/l
2 ans à 16 ans 4,4 à 11 pmol/l

Not sure about the B though :-(
