Nothing: Results are close to normal, I'd be worried if the other way round, just follow up with the provider who ordered the test, as those results weren't in isolation, other parameters where tested as well, looks like they were within range, good luck

Can be normal: Why was the test run? The ration you quote is for 95 out of 100 people (95% confidence limits). So you are a little out of that range. In some autoimmune diseases, (where the immune system acts against the body), the ratio may be even higher. It is the opposite of what happens in AIDS.If you have no disease to go with the test, forget about it.
