Any symptoms?: 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, why was the test done? It may be your normal. Unless you develop symptoms, get it tested again in 6 months or so.
