Not much: You may be a little dehydrated and monos of 0.4 don't mean anything by itself. None of these tests has anything to do with testing for either anemia or thyroid function.

Means nothing: Your low serum creatinine means nothing. Reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end.
