Ferritin Blood Test

  • Item # LC004598

Assesses iron status

Ferritin is an iron-storage protein made in the liver. Ferritin testing is crucial; while a high level of ferritin is associated with iron overload, low ferritin levels can indicate that one may be at risk of being iron-deficient.

Ferritin is a protein produced in the liver for the storage of iron. Ferritin is a sensitive and specific test that helps your doctor diagnose iron deficiency anemia. In general, a healthy ferritin level is greater than 20 ng/mL.

Higher levels of ferritin, greater than 400 ng/mL, are consistent with iron overload which is called hemochromatosis.
