Ferritin Health Test

Low ferritin levels indicate iron deficiency. If ferritin levels are low, additional tests including an iron test, TIBC and transferrin test are used to confirm a diagnosis of iron deficiency anaemia.

On the other hand high levels of ferritin could indicate you have haemochromatosis (iron overload syndrome) an inherited condition where your body cannot rid itself of iron and therefore it accumulates over time. High ferritin levels are also associated with liver inflammation.

The ferritin test is for people who may be at risk of anaemia, or who have a close family member with haemochromotosis and wish to understand their own risk of the condition.

What will this test kit find out?

Ferritiin

Ferritin is a blood cell protein that contains iron. A ferritin test helps your doctor understand how much iron your body is storing. If a ferritin test reveals that your blood ferritin level is lower than normal, it indicates your body's iron stores are low and you have iron deficiency.
