Brief Answer:
Iron deficiency anemia

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for the information.

Based on the reports I suspect her to be suffering from Iron deficiency anemia. I would recommend another test called Iron profile which estimates levels of iron in blood and confirm the diagnosis.

Once the diagnosis is confirmed, she has to be started with iron supplements.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
Regards,
