Can I get this straight - can my iron level or serum ferritin be determined by a 'normal' blood test? My gp centre allows me to book as many blood tests as I want but I'm only allowed the super basic one. Like, if I have a high RBC count, does that mean my ferritin is high?
If this doesn't figure then what do I say to the doctor to let me have my ferritin tested? They still don't believe I'm hypothyroid, lol
