Diabetes: You are diabetic, and it is affecting your kidneys due to poor control with high trg you also have anemia due to the decrease in the production of erythropoietin which is secreted by the kidneys which leads to anemia since your hemoglobin is low. So you better work on better sugar control since you are heading into troubles if you do not control it. You also need to replace your low vitamin d.
