Etymology: Gk, chemeia, alchemy
the science dealing with the elements, their compounds, and the molecular structure and interactions of matter. Classifications of chemistry include inorganic chemistry and organic chemistry.

chemistry, normal values

the amounts of various substances in the normal human body, determined by testing a large sample of people presumed to be healthy. Normal values are expressed in ranges of numbers, and ranges vary for different age groups and from laboratory to laboratory. For example, a normal concentration of a substance in the blood might be expressed as 5 to 20 mg/dL. Although variations from normal values may be highly significant tools in the diagnoses of certain diseases, in all cases an abnormal result must be cautiously interpreted. See also specific tests.
