Firstly, yes - usually by 1-2 points for me when it was elevated. Different labs, plus things like inflammation, exercise/injury, and smoking can affect it.
Secondly, there are at least 2 different test methods in common use - Roche and Bayer-Siemens. These can give slightly different results with different reference ranges.
Finally, as others have said - there are all very low results. My lab doesn’t even report below 2 (just “<2”) as it’s not clinically relevant usually, and I’m not sure how accurate the decimal is that low.
Anyway, looks like all good news to me!
