If you look at your lab ranges, you will see normal results for your 12 yr old. If you do not have a copy I would suggest asking for one for your own reference.

Below, I have posted normal results ONLY for ~Iron studies~ for females and children of the age in question. Hope this helps. You should find out what the ~optimal~ results are for each of these as well by asking your child's doctor. Also, note that ranges may vary depending on labs.
