Growth Hormone check

From: maanni - 6 years 9 weeks ago

I am fifty one and I am concern about my growth hormone level, its common around this age to have low growth hormone.
I even did some reading that it would be good practice to take Human Growth hormone injection that keeps the body healthy and strong.

I also taking androgel for my Testosterone mine was really now but now is normal and ever since I am taking androgel I feel stronger and more energetic, and it also helps libidio and sexual performance.

So this is the result I had, would someone explain this result and let me know if it is normal or what is should be around normal range:
Growth Hormaone (GH): <0.1 Reference Range: < OR=10.0 FLAG: N

What is this means, the greater sign is confusing...

Here what some site says:
Random growth hormone (GH) levels in a healthy person range as follows:

Men: < 5 ng/mL or < 226 pmol/L
Women: < 10 ng/mL or < 452 pmol/L
Children: 0-20 ng/mL or 0-904 pmol/L
Newborns: 5-40 ng/mL or 226-1808 pmol/L

But I cannot map my result to above range. Would someone please explain my result and compare to above normal range?

Thank you!
