  • Regarding "Establishment methods", I think the concept of "limit" is acceptably clear from the previous section, but just in case I added the explanation "a limit meaning the end of a reference range". I also think the usage of the graph is clear from the given example. I don't think the reader necessarily needs to know how to derive such a diagram - what is important is in knowing how to use it. Also, the Excel file is available online for reference.
  • Regarding "Interpretation...", the link to the Wikipedia article on standard deviation is now corrected. The values of epidemiology and the individual's risk factors are further explained in the link to epidemiology-based differential diagnostic procedure.
