Please tell me the value of control.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.
Your aptt is 47.5 second. But without control value it has no significance. Different laboratory and different kit has different control value. Some lab consider it as normal according to control and some lab consider it abnormal. So please tell me what is the control value of test.
So that I can help you further.
Moreover prothrombin time should be done to search the cause of bleeding disorder.
Hope I have answered your question, if you have doubt then I will be happy to answer.

Thanks for using health care magic.
