As some of you know, I have celiac disease and have taken iron pills for the last 13 years. I now take NOTHING except monthly B-12 shots. I had an iron infusion in Dec. 2005. I just had a blood test ordered from my gastro Dr. which he never called me with the results. So when I went for my capsule endoscopy I asked for my results. My numbers are posted in my "got my numbers" thread on this board. I think that the B-12 shots are keeping my numbers in the "low normal" range. But I am still so fatigued!!! Should I ask for a ferritin blood test? I actually thought that he would recommend another iron infusion before I had the blood test because of the way that I was feeling. Can I just call his office and ask for an order sheet for the ferritin blood test? My friend is getting her first iron infusion because of her ferritin results. When he said that he was testing my blood for anemia, why wasn't the ferritin test ordered?
