B12 - I think maybe I was tested for B6 at one point, but B12 is the one I have done repeatedly.

My daughter just had labs for B12 and Folic Acid (B9) drawn this morning. I think for me, they have just drawn B12, but I can't remember. I'll be getting my next lab slip on Wednesday, so my memory will be refreshed then.

An anemia panel is probably what you should have drawn - Anemia Panel CBC w/ Diff and Platelets, Ferritin, Folates (Folic Acid), Vitamin B 12, TIBC with iron and Reticulocyte Count

This will tell you enough about B vitamins and will give you a baseline Iron level.
