Worth ferritin

FerritinAdults from 18-45 years:

10 µg/Liter bis 220 µg/Liter

Ferritin is one of the proteins that is stored in iron. In addition, ferritin protects cells from free iron.

If the ferritin values ​​are outside the norm, it may be due to anemia, for example. These values ​​increase in adults over 45 years of age up to an upper limit of 400 µg/litre. In a direct comparison, the values ​​for women decrease up to 70 µg/liter up to 45 and with a limit of 18 µg/liter and an upper limit of 120 µg/liter in women over 45 years.

Jamie Clark

Hello, I’m Jamie Clark, 32 years old, and I have been living in the USA for a few years.
Since I was a child, I have suffered from a house dust allergy, severely affecting me. I felt the effects both while exercising and while sleeping. Constant sneezing after getting up and difficult breathing were the consequences. The allergy has also developed into asthma, which is still a sporting restriction today.
