Help deciphering lab results

I had my 6 month labs drawn in March and posted the results here. Several of you said there were tests missing so I went back and asked for more. I just got around to having them drawn and just got my results. I'm questioning a couple of the results and will probably be calling the office next week. I wanted to see if the "gurus" could take a look and give me their thoughts.

 Not a guru but a few things stand out to me.
Your Ferritin has been tanking.  You need to increase your iron.
Your B12 is going down a bit, too.  I would up that.  I like mine to be over 1000.
Your D is great.  Keep it up.
Nothing else stands out to me except there are some I don't see such as vitamin A.  Hopefully someone who knows more then me with chime in soon.

The D test. D 25 hydroxy? Or D 1,25?

Iron and B12 both scaring me

P.S.  My year + long absence has NOTHING to do with my WLS, or my type of WLS. See my profile.

The D Test is the D 25 Hydroxy.
