No: 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, the data your provided is not a cause for concern. It would be your normal. Wish you good health!

Not likely,,,: It depends on your overall health situation. If you feel fine then it shouldn’t be a cause for concern. Many test results fluctuate with no signs or symptoms. It would be a good idea to talk to your Dr./the Dr. who ordered the tests about the results of these and all the other tests and physical exam, if you had one, to get an assessment of your overall health situation. Best of luck.
