    It seems as though you just have too much going on...  What has your doctor told you?  How high or low are your values?  Are they just borderline or slightly high or low?   Could you possibly list the ranges of your values, as there is a huge difference in if these are just slightly high or low, compared to truly high or low..   We would need your test results, along with the labs range for each test.  As I am seeing things right now, it seems as though you have anemia, as for the high urea... being your other kidney test are fine, I don't think it's anything to worry about.  As for the low anion gap..  if it's just a little low, it's nothing to worry about.  The low TSH,  how low?  If it's definitely below the lab range, it could indicate hyperthyroidism.. The low Vitamin D.. you'll need prescription Vitamin D3 from your doctor, not over the counter, as it's a mega dose of 50,000IU, once a week for 12 weeks.  Now.. as for your low mono and low lymphs.. I think that's fine and just needs to watched and retested in another month or two, as they would not be considered truly low, until your WBC count is out of range too..  This is about all I got..  Like I mentioned, if you could post your results with the ranges, we could be more specific.. as I am just winging it without them..

    What are your thyroid numbers and cholesterol levels and ranges? 

    To start, my guess is you’re anemic and need iron and B complex. 

    But you have multiple issues, implying your whole system is down.  At this point it’s hard to tell what’s what. This could be hypothyroidism. Just because your thyroid numbers show in range doesn’t necessarily rule out thyroid disease. Start by looking at your thyroid numbers in detail to rule that out.

    Next get yourself some supplements: multivitamin with coblimated Bs, D and iron, also multimineral.
