ranges of test values

Posted by kshrewsbury on 30 Jan 2021 at 13:24 GMT

Can you please explain why the ranges of test values expressed in your abstract and in your results appear to have large gaps and are not contiguous? If I read the paper right, your three ranges are >55, 30-34, and <20. This leaves enormous range gaps, which are not possible with nearly 200,000 test subjects.

Can you please explain why you did not divide your subjects up into the groups recommended by your laboratory of <20, 20-29, and >=30. These seem very reasonable.
