What is the Ferritin Test?

The main purpose of a ferritin test is to indicate and measure the amount of ferritin stores in your blood. It is an iron carrier protein. You can also think of it as an iron storage house. It will give your doctor an idea about how much iron your body has. If, in your test results, ferritin levels are lower than normal then it will mean that your body is iron deficient. After that, you will be diagnosed with IDA. It is iron deficiency anemia.
