Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Lipid profile is normal – it is excellent to have low LDL cholesterol!

You have mild anaemia / MCV is increased – likely from vitamin B-12 or folic acid deficiency > have their levels estimated. It is not an emergency / nor serious / easily treatable..
Consult a haematologist / He will suggest based on his assessment of the situation.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck

There are several over-the-counter preparations...many of them contain far higher than daily needs...
Take both B-12 AND Folic acid / If possible, initially a course of B-12 injections and oral folic acid tablets; later both in combined tablet form.
Your GP can give prescription / injection as well...
