Description

Ferritin is a protein that stores iron. Red blood cells (RBCs), liver, bone marrow, and muscles need iron to function properly. This test helps to assess the iron stores in the body. It is usually ordered along with serum iron and TIBC to detect the presence and severity of iron deficiency or iron overload. Ferritin is also an acute phase reactant meaning it increases in people with inflammatory conditions, chronic infection, malignancy, or liver disease. However, it is typically not used to detect these conditions.

Test Instructions

Test is performed on a blood sample. No preparation is needed. Inform your doctor about all the medicines, vitamins, nutritional supplements, herbal or ayurvedic preparations, and homeopathic medicines you are taking
