Normal: If you meant 5.1 mmol/l ( ~ 92 mg/dl), that is fine, the problem is your weight rather, seems that you're too weight conscious, just eat healthy, if you still are underweight, you still need to see an endocrinologist , you need an evaluation, maybe your thyroid or it is just your built, wish you wellness
