Why do I have such high ferirtin levels?
I had my iron blood test. Why do I have such high ferritin levels and yet my serum iron levels
and saturation levels are lowish?
IRON 15.3 umol/L 10.6 - 28.3
T.I.B.C 58 umol/L 41 - 77
TRANSFERRIN SATURATION 26 % 20 - 55
FERRITIN 239 ug/L 30 - 400
Ferritin ranges confuse me - I have just had two ferritin tests and both ranges were 15 - 50 but yours are 30 - 400 so how does that work.
I don't think 239 is that high as its just over half way - why don't you speak to your GP and ask him/her.
Doesnt look high for the range but when it is high it can sometime be a sign that your body has some kind on inflamation . Yours is in the middle. x
