As the results, the study subjects had low red blood cell counts (38.55%), low hemoglobin counts (24.58%), low hematocrit levels (20.11%), high erythrocyte sedimentation rate levels (28.49%), high white blood cell counts (20.67%), low neutrophil counts (7.26%), high lymphocyte counts (16.20%), low eosinophil counts (18.45%), high aspartate aminotransferase levels (6.4%), high alanine aminotransferase levels (12.30%), and high creatinine levels (11.17%).
