I don't consider the finding worth a second thought. The cited normal range of 0.5-1% in many labs . 1.5 % is not a finding worth worrying about. When such issues come up you should share your concerns with the doc who ordered the test so they can put the findings into the full context of your specific findings on history & exam.
