How to check your Ferritin (Iron) levels with a home finger-prick blood test kit

What Is A Ferritin (Iron) Test For?

A Ferritin (Iron) test is also known as a Serum Ferritin test.

Ferritin is a blood protein that is high in iron, making it a very good indicator of the overall amount of iron stored in the body.

Iron is crucial for the production of healthy red blood cells, and deficiencies may eventually lead to iron deficiency anaemia.

What If Ferritin (Iron) Test Levels Are High?

What If Ferritin (Iron) Test Levels Are High?

Ferritin levels are high in states of long-term iron overload, especially in haemochromatosis. However, ferritin levels can be high for a number of other reasons including inflammatory conditions and liver issues.

Further investigation is therefore required before a diagnosis of iron overload can be made.

What If Ferritin (Iron) Test Levels Are Low?

What If Ferritin (Iron) Test Levels Are Low?

Ferritin levels are low in long-term iron deficiency. Ferritin may also be decreased if your body's protein levels are very low, as in some cases of malnutrition.

There are usually few symptoms early in iron deficiency. However, as the condition worsens and anaemia develops, ongoing weakness and fatigue can occur. As the iron levels continue to be depleted further, additional symptoms of anaemia may be present such as shortness of breath and dizziness. If the anaemia is severe then chest pain, headaches, and leg pains may also occur.
