Hi, welcome to HCM I am Dr Das
From the given report , it can be said that the hemoglobin is very low with low hematocrit values and high row.
This is a microcytic hypochromic anemia.. this occur in many conditions.
First, you will have to do a microscopic HPLC test of blood, then a iron study. I think these will lead to a definite diagnosis.
