Pretty much: Most of the values listed are within the common cited normals for the age. The hemoglobin is on the low end.The iron is a bit low, depending on the units of measure which is not listed. (normal if not a bit elevated in micro-moles/L). I would usually have a kid this age on a dependable source of iron daily anyway.
