is G T electrophesis the same as a ferritin blood test?

    Hi, sorry if its any consolation this is all driving me just as nuts. Ive asked dr to test me for G T electrophesis as requested by Rheumatologist, and he has written Ferritin on the form.

    G T Elecrophoresis is used in many different analyses for "genetic test" ie DNA.
    Sounds like the Dr also wants to know your serum ferritin. Electrophoresis is also the method used to evaluate iron level in serum and in Haemoglobin. electrophoresis is used in many different tests.
    Ask your doctor what is being tested for.
