What Is A Normal Ferritin Level?


Recommended Posts

according to labwork i have copies of, the reference range for ferritin (which is essentially iron stores in your body) is 20-120. different labs may have slightly different ranges but they're generally within the same ballpark. there is no variation between male & females though i would think females would be more likely to be lower. mine is 5...not something to be proud of :(

hope this helps,

Hi

The normal ferritin level will vary from lab to lab. You need to ask your lab about their normal range. This can be the case with other lab values too. It can depend on the equipment. What is normal for a RESTLESS LEGS patient is different from a patient without restless legs. Restless legs patients should have a ferritin greater than 45.
