I alot of home tests will provide the test strips along with the rating colors. For example of the hematuria test, (especially with the ones used in my office) No blood in urine will be orange, trace of blood will be spotted green, small amount of blood will be a light green, moderate amount darker green, and large amount of blood will be dark green. It indicates just how much blood is shown in urine (whether physically seen or not).

yes, i know. what im trying to get across is that simply being able to read a result does give the individual any idea what the result actually means, nor what should be done in terms of treatment.

I agree there that they will not officially know what it means but it at least gives them a starting point of what to tell their DR. And definitely by no means should they know what tests will help for treatment.
