Dear PATIENT you for sharing your reports with me. Your hemoglobin level along with iron and transferrin saturation is low, this suggests you are having iron deficiency anemia. For this, You should take a diet rich in green leafy vegetables, spinach, jaggery etc which are rich sources of iron. You can also take Tablet Feosol once a day for at least a month. Your vitamin D level is also low, for this you can have calcirol sachet in milk once a week for at least 6 weeks. Your ALT and AST level is also high, for this you can get a USG abdomen done.
