Brief Answer: Answer given below Detailed Answer: Hi, Sorry for the delay. Since you have low hemoglobin and also having enlarged liver and spleen, more tests are to be done before treatment plan is finalized. The following tests are to be done - 1. Peripheral blood smear test 2. Reticulocyte count 3. Upper GI endoscopy 4. Portal vein doppler scan 5. Stool routine test and occult blood test. You can consult your physician for these tests. Let me know if I can assist you further. Regards, Dr.R.K
