Ferritin Levels

Would someone please be able to tell me if this acceptable to dismiss this result as normal? In Jan this year my ferritin was 528 then in May 457. Both those tests were done by Medichecks and each time marked as high. This one has been done my surgery and is deemed as normal. The ranges Medichecks use are very different to this even though they are both measured in ug/L. Medichecks range is 13.00 - 150.00. Thank you.

High ferritin with Hashimoto's is not uncommon

It can indicate inflammation

The high ferritin can be caused by inflammation somewhere in the body. It's going down so no worries mine is usually high and so is my daughters she has no thyroid problems.

Thank you both for your comments.
