Ferritin Test (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
How are the results of the ferritin test interpreted?
The normal range for ferritin levels is rather broad and varies slightly among laboratories.
Normal ferritin levels are higher for men than for women. High or low levels of ferritin are suggestive of an iron storage disorder or iron deficiency anemia, respectively. As with any blood test, the result is interpreted together with the result of other laboratory tests and a thorough patient physical examination and medical history to establish a diagnosis.
