RDW count always high with CBC

I just started seeing a naturopathic dr. and he requested that I go to my drs. and gather as much lab work as possible.He also did a full CBC and urine.  According to him, I have iron deficiency anemia, adrenal insufficiency, acidic blood and I noticed a pattern of high RDW.  He has been treating me with iron, adrenal suppliments, and various other suppliments.  Now I'm showing a bacterial infection in my urinary tract with protein and trace blood.

He doesn't seem concerned about the RDW count which is alway 15.6 +.  My dad had myelodysplasia and I keep running across that and possible Lupus.  Had an ANA test years ago that said it was borderline.

Sick, scared and need answers if possible.

Thank you
