If your haemaglobin is only 4.29, you are severely anemic and you will have to consult your doctor as soon as possible. The severe abdominal pain can be due to a bleeding ulcer, resulting in a very low haemaglobin count. The rest of your blood results are more or less normal. You can consult a dietrician to improve your cholesterol, as the bad cholesterol is slightly high.

Are you sure you don''t have an ulcer or problems in the colon (maybe go for colonscopy) the bloody stools have me concerned. I had 2 miscarriages due to not enough blood flow to uterus. It was sorted out with ecotrin (asprin you can drink while pregnant) so if you are anemic or have bleeding ulcer it can also be due to this
