Your lab tests should be reported and interpreted by the ordering doctor, unless somehow, you managed to do this "independently". Nonetheless, the values are completely normal and do not represent areas of concern.

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, your results are eminently normal. Wish you good health!
