U R seriously sick: This is probably iron deficiency. Even if you are a non-supplementing vegetarian, there's almost certainly something seriously wrong. You have a bleeding stomach ulcer or stomach or colon cancer until proved otherwise. Get with a competent, evidence-based physician now. It's a mistake to try to diagnose anything from a bunch of labs, however abnormal. You're a person, not a bunch of numbers.
