Hello from JA
Ferritin should be considered in relation to iron.

The healthy range is essentially between 20 and 80 ng/ml
18 to 270 mcg/l

I recently had a blood test and my serum ferritin reading is 417 umol/l . What does that mean ? Does that mean my ferritin level is very high ? What should I do ?
