A particularly helpful website dealing with lab testing in general is, Lab Tests Online.  Lab Tests Online has been designed to help you to better understand the many clinical lab tests that are part of routine care as well as diagnosis and treatment of a broad range of conditions and diseases.

Open test index, select the test in question, then review information about that test including links to related diseases.  There is also an index of conditions where individual diseases/conditions are described in detail.
