Reference Range

A glycoprotein which stores iron atoms in the ferric state. Ferritin is predominantly intracellular, where it forms an exchangable pool of iron. Its serum level is directly proportional to body iron stores. Ferritin levels fall in iron deficiency. Levels are increased in iron overload, and also in inflammatory syndromes, liver disease and with certain neoplasms.
