See below: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, the data you provided is not a cause for concern. Why was the test done? Do you have any symptoms? What were the results of other tests? It would be best discussed with the doctor who ordered the test.
