A healthy result should fall into the range 30 - 400 µg/dL, 5.37 - 71.60 µmol/L, 30.00 - 400.00 ng/mL, or 30.00 - 400.00 ug/L.

Our bodies rely on iron in red blood cells to carry oxygen everywhere. Without enough iron, our red blood cells are unable to efficiently supply oxygen. Ferritin is a blood cell protein that holds iron and releases it in controlled intervals. It is produced by every cell in the body, but is found most commonly in the liver, spleen, skeletal muscles, and bone marrow. A ferritin blood test checks the amount of ferritin in the blood, which shows how much iron is stored in your body. A healthcare professional might order a ferritin blood test to:

            -Find the cause of anemia, especially iron deficiency anemia

            -See if inflammation is present

            -See if too much iron is present (hemochromatosis)

            -Check if iron treatment to raise or lower the iron level is working 

Normal Ranges in ng/mL:

 0-1 month: 25-200 
1-2 months: 200-600 
2-5 months: 50-200 
6 months- 14 years: 10-140 
Adult male: 24-336 
Adult female: 11- 307
