Answer
Hello:
The eosinophil count is raised (26%), this could be due to her being an asthmatic. The more important value is of low hemoglobin (8.7) She is anemic and may have iron deficiency anemia (commonest cause of anemia)

The anemia needs to be evaluated to confirm the cause and accordingly treated.
