Iron is one the most important minerals required for the good functioning of our body as it makes the red blood cells which carry oxygen from lungs to other parts of the body. Other than this iron ensures healthy muscles, bone marrow and brain development. Excess and dearth of iron can cause serious health issues if not treated well.

Our body stores iron in a protein named ferritin. Approximately one quarter of the total iron in our body is stored by ferritin, hence it is also a good indicator of iron deficiency. Ferritin releases iron in our body for multiple functions including the formation of red blood cells. Ferritin blood test also indicates the amount of iron stored for further use. Ferritin usually lives in our body’s cells with very little circulating in our body, the body usually signals the ferritin to release iron for any use including the formation of red blood cells. Ferritin combines with another protein known as transferrin and transports iron to the red blood cells.

In cases of iron deficiency and iron overload, ferritin plays a major role in both diagnoses and management. It is also believed that ferritin also plays a major role in other diseases such as neurodegenerative and malignant disease.
