Hello Ganesh!
Going by the results you have posted should be measured against your previous hair profile and your ethnic & familial traits. I am telling you the interpretation of this study with regards to average indian ratios... It would be best to co-relate the results with clinical findings.
Your average hair density is 184.7 as against average of 200/cm2 but still with in normal range of 170-220/cm2. However your anagen/telogen ratio is 27.6/72.4 (roughly 1:2.6) which indicates acute hair loss. Velus hair percentage is with in normal range.

This kind of study with supporting clinical data would represent telogen effluvium. Since you are suffering from last two years, I would diagnose you as a case of chronic telogen effluvium. The cause of your chronic telogen effluvium and the treatment can not be decided based upon this study.

To learn further about hair loss causes and treatment you can read my blogs online.
