Hi well come to HCM.
Normal value 0.89 means upto 0.89 is normal does not mean it should be 0.89, any
thing below this is normal and above this is positive report. Test done any where in
standard laboratory ran by qualified person will give reliable report. But for satisfaction
you can recheck no harm. Thanks.
