Your TSH is low and Hb on lower side.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Her TSH levels are very low. Is she taking something for hypothyroidism?

Her hemoglobin is also on the lower side. She has to take iron for the same. She has to take an iron rich diet.

Hope found useful, feel free to ask more information.
