Interpretation of Blood Results

Patient : I just got a blood test back and some items are of concern. I am living in an Asian country at the moment and the Doctors are having trouble explaining things to me. The results that were of concern are as follows - RBC - 3.94 NE% - 44.90 LY% - 43.40 MO% - 9.50 HCT - 38.10 MCV - 96.90 PDW - 16.50 Hemoglobin 12.7 Would you be able to provide a rough idea if there are any problems or if the results are OK... The rest of my results were in the normal range....
Symptoms:  Fatigue
Doctor :   You are definitely suffering from anemia, as your RBC anb hemoglobin levels are less. But you are having mild anemia. Yo u must be further ivestigated with peripheral smear and iron levels and bone marrow aaspiration/biopsy if required, to find the cause of anemia. If you have symptoms like breathlessness, easily fatiguability, weakness, etc you require treatment with iron suppliments. Consult your physician for further advice and followup.
