Need more info: How old are you? Do you have any symptoms? Why was the test done? 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, further testing may need to be done and you should consult the doctor who ordered the test.
