Did 2 tests in the past. The results came out near average of min and max values. Not exactly average but very close to it. This is making me suspicious.

How do I even know the truthfulness of lab results? Specially after 100% cashback offers? Who knows if some scam racket is running at the backend?

Have you faced similar issues?

There’s no way except getting yourself tested via other lab (new one*) but not all labs use same testing method so results do vary

At same time give a sample ro the same lab or a different lab without using pharmeasy or any other offer.

‎ ‏‏‎‏‏‎ 

So you feel that Pharmeasy has unfair deal wirh even reputed labs 

where Pharmeasy does not pay them well in the namw of caahbacks to patients?

‏‏‎ ‏‏‎‏‏‎ 

So then what about medicines?

Are you going to say that the foods or medicines we order on deep discounts too are not safe?‏‏

Use better lab like SRL or Dr. Lal path and then check out the results.

Tests done are found reliable. I do get accurate results. Accurate meaning a pre diabetic patient is shown pre diabetic. Similarly thyroid tests done are accurate as well. They don’t offer PT/INR else would have ditched lal path labs.

I have had good experience with Pharmeasy in Bangalore. Tests are conducted by Pharmeasy labs at my location and I find it reliable. 

And for guys doubting Thyrocare, it is one of the best diagnostic chain run by an efficient team. Google about it.

100% cashback offers are run to increase the number of tests/customers as the company is in Pre IPO stage and they need good numbers to show the investors.

Its not about any VITAMIN D Test and so on, regarding covid tests as well, had bad experiences done with Thyrocare Tested Negative, done same test with Apollo in the evening Tested Positive. Many instances where reoprts were misleaded. For surprise they dont have lab to test covid samples in hyderabad, they sent Mumbai for test results. Pathetic service

Pharmeasy now seems to be using Thyrocare. My sample collected for two different packages same time gave two different results. I decided not to use Thyrocare again.

Yeah that’s what I thought and told her to get a bit of sun exposure early in the morning once in a while.

Although she goes out quite a lot & that’s what made a skepticle although deficiency could be due to any other reason also.

I found lab result to be wrong. I did a diabetes checkup. It gave me very high fasting blood sugar of 282. However there is no glucose in urine. The doctor said that it’s not possible. If you have such high sugar than it should show in urine too. I did a local check and my fasting turn out to be 120. I am glad that I didn’t take medicine thinking I have high sugar or it would have adverse affect on my health. I am staying away from pharmeasy lab and thyrocare now.

99% of the people won’t find out that their test results are wrong. And will take wrong medicines and destroy their health.

and people here believing pharmeasy is good, can’t give wrong results – wake up from your dream world and open your eyes.

it is simply not possible to have such huge daily test volumes and have accurate results. Specially in such a “jugadu” country like India.

pharmeasy test results are definitely wrong.

Speaking with data for the same test done in 2 different labs at the same time will clear the air, rest going by comments here is just a waste of time.

You also need to wakeup and open eyes.
Can not give huge volume as an excuse for wrong result.

vijaya diagnostic is best known lab in south india, if not heard. Their results are acceptable in all hospitals in south india without questions. Another is lucid

@ OP, pharmaeasy or any other lab, they have only collection centers. The tests are done at centralized location. Based on scale, infra, process & the way they conduct lab tests the results will vary.

In south, lucid and vijay diagnostic have top class equipment. After that apollo is catching up now.

for every test measure there is something called correction values. Depending on equipment the correction ranges vary. Based on that the final result will come. 

if  you have doubts, look at the pathologist signature and find out by calling them  if possible.

At vijaya, i had doubt on wifes vitiman D test june 2020. I raised my objection and spoke to doctor at local collection center and to the pathologist at centralized location. They did another with same sample and results are same.

reputed labs do keep samples for 24hrs and we can raise concerns if we have.

Their charges are also more compared to others.
