My health care provider switched from using Mayo to LabCorp for the blood tests. Does anyone here have any knowledge about the comparative accuracy of these two companies? If so I would appreciate your sharing it with me.

Thank you...that explains why some of them show the results as the first and only time the item has been tested. Previously all previous results were shown and I could even opt to have them displayed on a graph. Extremely useful!

I find that graphing capability a big help. When I first started out just kept all the results in a spreadsheet but it does mess comparisons up when the ranges for your tests change because the provider changes. I have no experience about the relative reliability of one company over the other though.
