Ferritin

Ferritin is also an important component in iron metabolism. Iron binds to ferritin and is stored in this form in the organs. Ferritin is therefore the most important iron store in the body and allows conclusions to be drawn about how much stored iron is actually present in the body. Together with the values for iron and transferrin saturation, triggers of a possible anaemia can be distinguished. Your ferritin values are interpreted in conjunction with other blood values.
