Has a nurse or the doc discussed the results with you? I am a little concerned over the elevated fasting glucose level, have they drawn an A1C? This will tell what the sugars have been doing for the last 3 months. As to the rest of the test, being I am not an RN or Lab tech, I really can not interpret the numbers. Every lab has their own set of values that they consider "normal"

ESR is age related. Normal range for men under 50 years old= less than 15 mm/hr, so you are above that. There can be many causes for the elevation like anemia, kidney disease, thyroid disease, but also an infection.

Normal values for TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) range from 0.4 - 4.0 milli-international units per liter (mIU/L).
