Ferritin Blood Test Kit

What is the Ferritin Test?

Ferritin is a protein that stores iron and is an acute phase reactant coordinating cellular defence against oxidative stress and inflammation. A ferritin result helps your doctor determine how much iron your body store. And to anticipate and monitor iron deficiency.

What does it measure?

A lower-than-usual ferritin level indicates your body’s iron stores are typical and you have iron deficiency. As a result, you could be anaemic.

High Ferritin levels can indicate damage to your organs, such as the liver and spleen.

High Level

The following conditions may cause ferritin’s high levels:

  • Acute/chronic liver disease.
  • Infection.
  • Inflammation.
  • Alcoholism.
  • Hyperthyroidism.
  • Gaucher disease.
  • Myocardial infection.
  • Iron overload (hemochromatosis).
  • End-stage kidney disease.
  • Hepatocellular carcinoma.
  • Megaloblastic anaemia, hemolytic anaemia, thalassemia.

Low Level

Ferritin’s low levels may be caused by the following:

  • Iron deficiency.
  • Hemodialysis.

Instructions for use

Please take your sample in the morning. Take it at least one hour before any medication. Do not take biotin supplements for two days before this test.

When you collect your sample, try the following tips:

  • Drink plenty of water. Being well-hydrated will make it easier to collect your sample.
  • Shower before you take your test or run your hands under warm water for a few minutes, as heat improves blood flow.
  • Do light exercise (move around, walk, etc.) to get the blood flowing.
  • Ensure your arm is below your heart level – let gravity do some of the work.
  • Nails that are too long can make it difficult to collect a sample.
  • Do not shake the sample vigorously but invert the tube gently ten times. (gently swirl the tube after each drop of blood).
  • Do not squeeze (milk) the finger.
  • Re-warm your hands during collection where needed.
