I'm going to be dead honest here, if they were abnormal, your doctor would talk to you about it, I would assume.  You can call your doctor for a full interpretation of the results.  I can look up what the normal ranges are and check where you are at as can you, but a doctor's analysis would be best. Why not call the doctor who ordered the test for you?
