Blood Test Results - Colonoscopy??

Please help me read my blood test results. I am concerned that there are so many results out of normal range. The doctor is sending me for a colonoscopy. Is that what I should do first? I have been anemic on and off for many years but no other doctor did anything but tell me to take iron supplements. My vitamin D is also deficient from time to time. Female 47. Below are items that fell out of normal range. THANKS

Ferritin Serum - 6 (15-150)
Hemoglobin - 10.6 (11.5-15.0)
MCV - 79 (80-98)
MCH - 22.8 (27-34)
MCHC - 29 (32-36)
Neutrophils - 78 (40.74)
RDW - 16.3 (11.7-15)
Cholesterol - 239 (100-199)
LDL Cholesterol - 156 (0-99)
Carbon Dioxide - 15 (20-32)

A colonoscopy is a good approach. If that is normal I would ask to see a hemotologist. You must feel pretty tired. Sorry I don't have more answers for you
