Monitoring deficiency/excess of iron & inflammation

Ferritin is a universal intracellular protein that stores iron and releases it in a controlled fashion. Too little ferritin can lead to anemia, while too much to liver disease, rheumatoid arthritis, other inflammatory conditions, or hyperthyroidism. The ferritin test measures the level of ferritin in the blood.
