Follow it: It's important to remember that the lab's "reference range" isn't the "normal range" or the "heathy range". Reference range is set so that 5% of perfectly healthy people fall outside.

In a recent iron test my iron level was found 79 ug/DL. Should this be little higher for a healthy person or is this on a lower side?
Hey Ethan!: You're in your prime, and life's too short and difficult for you to be fretting about lab values that are basically in the healthy range. This is perfectly fine.
