Hi, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das,
Your test result show, increased RBC count, lower MCV, lower MCH level and MCHC level. Lower saturation lvel and High iron binding capacity.
So, you have microcytic hypochromic anaemia with decreased saturation and increased iron binding capacity. So, you are suffering from Iron Deficiency Anaemia.

Welcome to HCM.

Your lab results shows decreased MCV & increased eosinophils. Which indicates you may be having iron deficiency anemia, but to confirmly say need complete lab work like peripheral smear, serum iron and ferritin levels.

Increase eosinophil count means there could be some allergic reactions , parasitic infestations and there are many other causes.

I advise you to consult your doctor for detailed evaluation.
