Brief Answer:
No need to worry

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Let me assure you that the report is normal and nothing to be concerned about. A pH of 6 is acidic and indicates that not all of what you eat has been absorbed. But that does not indicate something to worry about.

Let me know if I could help further.
