Please could someone take a look at these blood test results.
Ferritin wouldn't be included in a full blood count, you'll need to ask for that. Perfectly reasonable thing ask for this if you're feeling tired, low ferritin is really common and also really easy to fix with supplements. Your red cell count is normal, your result is 3.94 and the range starts at 3.8. Would also be worth asking them to check your thyroid function.
I agree, ask for your ferritin levels to be checked. I went to my GP for the same reason, they did a blood test. Went back, after about 6months feeling the same, got a different GP, they wondered why I hadn’t had ferritin checked. Got prescribed iron type supplement and feel better. I think it’s shocking that some GP’s wouldn’t check for ferritin levels when a lot of symptoms point to it being low.
