ok here's what wiki has to say about calcium: "The serum level of calcium is closely regulated with a normal total calcium of 2.2-2.6 mmol/L (9-10.5 mg/dL) and a normal ionized calcium of 1.1-1.4 mmol/L (4.5-5.6 mg/dL).
The amount of total calcium varies with the level of serum albumin, a protein to which calcium is bound."
magnesium is definitely looking far from optimal, esp given no washout so you have an artificially high result. established reference range is 1.7 - 2.7 so looks like your lab is using local patient values only, to generate that 1.5-2.5 range.
so 2.2 is right in the middle. research has demonstrated that deficiency occurs inside the mainstream normal range for magnesium. studies demonstrate that 2.2 can be considered either borderline or outright deficient. I have seen 4.0 proposed as an upper limit in research. certainly would do you no harm to aim for a serum mag level of 2.7
the lab appears to have a similarly bad range for ua, although it does match reference ranges more closely. the range is low either way. the reference range, similar to magnesium, also contains levels that are associated with illness.
"In human blood plasma, the reference range of uric acid is typically 3.4-7.2 mg/dL (200-430 µmol/L) for men, and 2.4-6.1 mg/dL for women (140-360 µmol/L)."
either way, the ms average level for UA is 3.3, so you're bang on the mark for an ms patient. healthy controls have ua levels between 4.9 and 5.
to improve your uric acid status will likely require more zinc. are you sure there's not a serum zinc level missing from that batch of results you have posted?
low zinc would tie in with the thyroid issues as well:

try to make sure you are getting at least a few hundred mgs of magnesium each day from food, and about 15-20mg of zinc from food. then top up with supplements. and measure again in a few months to reassess.

(this list is missing info on calf's liver and oysters which are particularly rich dietary sources)
fyi you can help to improve absorption of zinc from food by being careful with gluten, phytates, dairy, and sugar.
ferritin looks pretty good
so does vit e.
I hope you have a zinc level somewhere! you can tell it's down b/c of the low uric acid but it would be particularly good to have confirmation.
my approach: no meds so far - just nutrient-dense anti-inflammatory whole foods, and supplements where needed
