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

Your major findings shows positive EBV, CMV(Ig G) and positive hepatitis A.
Positive EBV and CMV test may need proper clinical examination.
Positive results may be due to recent or past exposure to these viruses.Generally it flourishes if immunity of a person decreases.

Positive hepatitis A is generally a self limiting condition.

Other findings shows mildly decreased hemoglobin level.
I suggest for iron supplementation to my patient in the form of iron tablets and iron rich food.

In short,findings are not very serious.You may need evaluation for EBV virus.

Get well soon.

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