Hi All,
I ask my hema to test my ferritin, as all of a sudden, when I was running, I couldn't run at my normal pace, and in the last two weeks, it's only gotten worse. Some research of the running sites mentioned that low ferritin can cause poor performance in running, although this is a big debate - some say no.

All along I've been suspecting B12 in my symptoms - hair loss, dizziness on standing, but now I realize, maybe I have low ferritin. Last time it was checked was a couple of years ago - it was 9, but that was the least of the worries at the time - my hemolytic anemia was going nuts.

Anyway, my question is, when they said they'd test my ferritin, does that also mean they do the other iron tests, serrum, TIIB, etc? Do those automatically come along when they test for ferritin? They took three tubes - one for a CBC, and then the other two, who knows.

Any info would be great,
