Nothing: All of these lab values are essentially normal.

See your dr: Normal ranges of your blood test results can vary depending on the lab used; however, it seems that your serum iron level may be a little high. U may be taking too much extra iron b/c of being vegetarian. Hypothyroidism can also complicate the picture. It is best to inform your dr of all the meds you are taking and the doses. Make sure u eat a healthy diet.
