IF you have been deficient long enough to alter your red blood cells then yes it will show up.

Here are some of the things that can be off due to prenicious anemia. (B12 Deficiency)

CBC results that show low hematocrit and hemoglobin with elevated MCV (low red blood cell count with large-sized red blood cells)
CBC showing low white blood count and low platelets
low reticulocyte count
bone marrow examination (only needed if diagnosis is unclear)
serum LDH
below normal serum Vitamin B-12 level

I've read enough to come to the conclusion that alot of people are deficient without having key signs on your CBC. MCV is usally the the most sensitive one. When it's high they call it megaloblastic anemia. Prenicious anemia is a form of megalobastic anemia.
