  • From online search - Normal Results..............Male: 12-300 ng/mL.................Female: 12-150 ng/mL............Note: ng/ml = nanograms per milliliter

    The lower the ferritin level, even within the "normal" range, the more likely it is that the patient does not have enough iron.
    Normal value ranges may vary slightly among different laboratories. Talk to your doctor about the meaning of your specific test results.
