Ferritin Test Overview
A ferritin blood test measures the levels of ferritin in serum (s. ferritin). Ferritin is a protein that stores iron, which is an essential element for producing red blood cells (RBCs) that are healthy. RBCs perform the crucial function of providing oxygen to all the tissues in the body. The extra iron is stored in ferritin, which is usually located in the cells of the immune system and the liver. To use the iron in the body, these cells release a small amount of ferritin in your bloodstream. Therefore, the assessment of ferritin levels serves as a direct measurement of the amount of iron stored in your body.
Reasons to take the Ferritin Test
It is recommended:
To determine iron deficiency or iron overload in the body.
