Ferritin Testing

Ferritin is a protein that stores iron and releases it in your body at controlled amounts to prevent iron deficiency or overload.  A ferritin test is done to determine if your body has too much or too little iron.


When a complete blood count shows that your hemoglobin and hematocrit are low, and your red blood cells are smaller and paler than normal, it's possible that you have an iron deficiency.  Symptoms of long-term iron deficiency may include:

  • Headaches

  • Weakness

  • Dizziness

  • Chronic fatigue

More serious iron deficiency can lead to ringing in the ears, feeling drowsy, chest pain, leg pains, shock, and shortness of breath.


When iron levels are too high and become toxic, symptoms may include:

  • Abdominal Pain

  • Joint Pain

  • Feeling Weak

  • Lower sex drive
