Brief Answer: appears to be iron deficiency. Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for your query. As your MCV is low and ferritin also low, iron deficiency is most probable. What about the serum iron level? If it is low too then it will be confirmed. Treatment is by iron supplements. Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer further follow up queries, if any.
