Brief Answer:
Your findings may indicate mild anemia and decreased vitamin D level.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for writing to HCM,
I've gone through your reports and understand your concern,


Your findings may indicate mild anemia and decreased vitamin D level.
I advise to take iron rich food and iron tablets to my patients.
One folic acid tablet daily is also helpful.

In vitamin D deficiency,I advise one vitamin D tablet weekly for eight weeks then one vitamin D tablet can be taken monthly for six weeks.
I also advise to take milk and milk products.

Increased ESR is non specific and it increases in many conditions.

Other findings are acceptable.

Get well soon.

Hope I have answered your query.
Further queries are most welcome.
