I've previously posted my FBC and Vit B12 results etc. (FBC normal, serum B12 is 254, but Active B12 120 currently waiting on MMA and homocysteine and a holter monitor result).
I got my ferritin tested this week and it has come back as 'low, see Dr. as planned' It is 13 (range 13-150).
I asked the Dr for this test the other day (he was a bit reluctant) and if there is any other tests for iron, he said no just the Ferritin but I've looked online and seems there is 'Serum iron', Transferrin, TIBC and saturation percent) - are these done on the NHS and would it be worth me trying to get them done?
Is low Ferritin a sign of something else I should be looking out for? (My TSH was 3.2, Dr says within range although people here have pointed out this can be hypothyroid but dr won't do other thyroid tests. Now with low Ferritin is there a connection? Can I now try and insist on these tests? i read a connection with Coeliac, should they check that?
Thanks in advance for your help and advice
