In brief: Anemia
What is your hemoglobin? Anemia is diagnosed when your hemoglobin is below the normal level .
The normal range will be different in male vs female. Now, anemia can be caused by so many different things- one of them is iron deficiency. Your iron saturation is lower that the normal range-that is the only thing i can say. But i dont know if you are anemic or not without knowing your hemoglobin.
