Iron deficiency?

Patient : Um I wasn't sure which category to put this under. But I had a blood test you know a physical and for nist if the stuff I was between the max and min optimum number however I had 27.4 on my MCH 28.0-34.0 are I guess preferred. Even though to me it doesn't look like a big deal, I just want to make sure that its not to hazardous, and if so what should I do about it. I understand it means I am low on Iron or something to that extent. What would be the best way to fix this. I just wanna try to figure this out without having to miss work again.
