Is it safe / allowed to post blood test results? I have had mine done, and my doctor faxed them to me with no concerns warranting another visit. I know all the MDs are all super busy, but I would like some insight on what it all means. So I was considering posting them. What do you think?

They're your medical records. Post them at your own will (and risk of others seeing them, which could affect future health insurance premiums, for example).

I thought of that, but my reasoning was that every life insurance place I have called in the past wanted blood tests anyways. Plus my blood work is good so I don't think I have anything to worry about (?).

I'll think it over for the weekend.
