More about this test

Iron is important for healthy muscles, bone marrow, and organ function.

You need iron to make healthy red blood cells. Red blood cells carry oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body. 

Whilst Iron levels will give us an idea of the amount of iron circulating in your body how, it is not as good an indicator to your true iron levels as a ferritin blood test.

Ferritin levels indicate the amount of stored iron in your body, if a person doesn’t have enough ferritin, iron stores can deplete quickly.

Ferritin is stored in the body’s cells until it’s time to make more red blood cells, and give us a better indicator of the overall picture of your iron levels than just iron on its own. 


Too little or too much iron in your system can cause serious health problems if not treated.


The greatest concentrations of ferritin are typically in the cells of the liver (known as hepatocytes) and immune system (known as reticuloendothelial cells).
