Hello,
Executive blood panel includes complete blood count, thyroid panel test, heart profile, liver function tests, kidney function tests minerals and bone panel, fluids and electrolytes and diabetes check. It rules out most of the diseases but sometimes for specific diseases like autoimmune, viral, liver diseases and heart diseases sometimes for pinpointing the diagnosis, you need to get certain other investigations done.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Hello,
If you are low in iron contents then you may be having iron deficiency anemia. You can have iron rich foods like liver, lean red meats, beans like kidney, lima, navy, black, pinto, soy beans, and lentils, iron fortified whole grains, green vegetables like spinach, tofu, broccoli, swiss chard, asparagus, parsley, chicken, nuts, egg yolk and dry fruits.

You can also have iron supplements along with these foods.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
