Iron and Vitamin D tests from GP

I have fibriods and severe endometriosis. I am wondering if anyone has had any success requesting Iron, Vitamin D, B Vitamin, or any Vitamin tests at all from their GP. I asked a few years ago for a general test to check any deficiencies.. request declined. Also I have noticed that some people have had tests done privately. Can anyone provide any recommendations? I live in London.

Hi. I too have severe endo. I was suffering with extreme fatigue and I had my vit d and iron levels checked. If I had not had the fatigue they would not have checked my levels I don't think. My vit D level was only 4, so i had to go and see a consultant who could prescribe the higher does pills tp bring it up as it was so low. My gp apologised to me afterwards for not thinking of testing me sooner.



Thank you so much for your reply. I hope your Vit D levels are back/getting back to normal. I have made a GP appointment so will see how I get on. Fingers crossed!
