[QUOTE=Mac2;3886931]Hi,

Just wanted to ask a question. My ferritin is now at 22 after 5 months of iron pills, and the other blood test I had for anaemia was 'normal'. If I had a Vit B12 deficiency would this have showed up in these tests? Or, would this have been a totally different test that they would have to do separately. It doesn't make sense to me that they wouldn't test for everything!

Thanks

Hi there do you have the values of the test results if you do it may be useful to post them up :)
I was unsure of the actual values as they just told me to take iron tablets so i went to the GP and asked for a print out of the blood test results, i found this helpful. My last blood test showed they did not do a routine B12 test.
I am not anaemic but i have low ferritin of 8.8
