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. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, other than vitamin D your lab results are normal. You may take 2000 units per day of vitamin D3. It is good that you exercise. Do not use alcohol, tobacco, weed or street drugs.
