Brief Answer:
Iron deficiency

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query.

It appears that iron saturation is low. Low MCV corroborates that.
We need to replenish the iron by oral or IV route. What is the hemoglobin? if it is very low will think of ruling out any source of bleeding in the body.

Hope this helps.
I will be available for followup.
Regards
