Brief Answer:
rule out vitamin B12 or folate deficiency

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query.

There is nothing extremely abnormal in this report. The white cells are bit low with MCV on the higher side. So we need to rule out vitamin B12 or folate deficiency. If these are normal in blood then nothing to worry, we can just follow your blood reports over time.

This is provided you do not have any other symptoms. If you have any symptoms then further investigations may be needed.

Hope this helps.
