Just received a huge batch of test results and have a lot of problems I need help with

Just had a lot of tests done and I'd like some help understanding them, I have already studied them through online searches but would appreciate any insights you folks can provide.

Homocysteine is 6.2 umol/L while the reference range is less than 11.4 umol/L so it is normal range but perhaps it should be lower?

TSH is low at .14 out of a reference range of .40-4.5 mIU/L
Free T4 is normal at 1.3 with a reference range of .8-1.8 ng/dL
Free T3 is high at 4.5 with a reference range of 2.3-4.2 pg/mL
I looked over hyperthyroid symptoms, don't think they fit me very well aside from the ones that would generally overlap with Chronic-Fatigue-Syndrome like weakness and poor sleep

Coenzyme Q10 is borderline low at .64 of .44-1.64 mg/L

Glutathione is borderline low at 556 with a reference range of 544-1228 uM
Really interested in help with this one since I know GSH is very important for a body struggling with CFS
On a related note my selenium is good at 136 with a reference range of 63-160 mcg/L

zinc is borderline low at 10.8 of 9-14.7 mg/L

Estradiol is high at 43 with a reference range of less than 39 pg/mL
I'm male

On a side note I had this test done through quest, don't know if all quest tests are covered by insurance, haven't received my statement/bill yet, does anyone know which labs are most likely to be covered by insurance, paying out of pocket is a pain.
