Ferritin Levels: Iron Deficiency & Overload

Research Paper Title

Interpreting Raised Serum Ferritin Levels.

Abstract

A 60 year old businessman attended his general practitioner after an insurance medical examination at which abnormal liver function tests had been noted (alanine aminotransferase 70 IU/L (normal range 10-40 IU/L) and γ-glutamyltransferase 120 IU/L (normal range 0-37 IU/L)). He was otherwise fit and well and not taking regular medication. His general practitioner noted that his full blood count and renal function were normal, and requested hepatitis B and C serology (which were negative) and serum ferritin level, which was 567 μg/L (normal range 24-300 μg/L).
