Ferritin is a protein used for storing iron in the blood.
This test is frequently ordered when a patient shows symptoms of iron deficiency or iron overload. It can also be ordered when patients exhibits low levels of hemoglobin and hematocrit, which can indicate anemia. Ferritin is found mostly in the spleen, bone marrow, liver, and skeletal muscles.
The Ferritin Blood Test works by collecting a blood sample and measuring ferritin levels in the blood. Ferritin levels correspond to the levels of iron in the body — abnormally high levels of ferritin indicate an iron overload, while low levels indicate an iron deficiency.
