Which is the best test for Iron in Blood?
Ferritin is the most reliable marker for iron in the blood. This is because it reflects the iron stores in the body. If the ferritin is low, there is definitely a requirement for iron.
Ferritin is a molecule in which the body stores iron.
It is found in the liver, spleen, bone marrow as well as the cells of the stomach/gastrointestinal tract.
Ferritin depends on iron intake and iron loss. These simple home remedies may help to increase ferritin.
A simple hemoglobin level may help to determine if you need further investigations for iron levels.
