Rbc
 
Can the RBC blood test show if your iron levels are normal or not? My doctor never orders a serum ferritin test with my yearly physical.

No...it would give an overall reading.
You can request for ferritin to be added. At least you will know where on the scale you are.

If your RBC is low it should trigger additional testing... your doctor should be able to tell if you need additional testing as the RBC test is pretty broad.
