Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for her symptoms.
Some of the results can be from dehydration.
However, BUN creatinine level should be checked again.
Her hemoglobin level is low.
Low hemoglobin or anemia can cause a sense of breathlessness on exertion.
The cause is often low iron.
That needs to be corrected.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
