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, your laboratory values are not particularly abnormal and may be your normal. If you do not have symptoms, do not be concerned about the numbers. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.

Stop worrying: These are normal. Reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. People who get sick from this stuff have values way out of range. Best wishes.
