Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for the query.

The report may be wrong and it would be better to get it repeated as it is really abnormal. When ever we see such an "outlier" from normal, it's always better to recheck either from the same lab or from some other reliable/ dependable laboratory.

Please get back to me after you get it rechecked from a reliable lab with the reports.

Hope this answers your query.

Regards.
