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, none of the results you provided are a cause for concern. You may take oral iron supplements for low iron. Wish you good health!
