lab results (??)

Hi I just got some lab results back and wondered if someone could tell me what they mean?  I can't get an appt with the doctor til Feb 27th....I had the lab tests done at 8:30 in the morning on a 12 hr fast....(if that makes a difference).
THANK YOU!

Without reference ranges, hard to know if the AB levels are normal.  However the TSH is normal, suggesting normal thyroid hormone levels.
The ferritin is low with high iron binding and low % saturation - so there is likely Iron deficiency.
The cortisol is low-normal, but this does not necessarily indicate a problem.

Talk to your doctor about the interpretation of these tests for your individual situation.
