Not unless its inc--: reasing. Every Lab has its own Reference range, so checking with your PCP would be the best as None of us would have a clue to the Reference your lab uses. Overall your numbers are not terribly high, except the Alk phos, I think. Best check with your PCP and maybe repeat the tests after 4-6 weeks time. Good Luck
