Are Current Serum and Plasma Ferritin Cut-offs for Iron Deficiency and Overload Accurate and Reflecting Iron Status? A Systematic Review. Serum or plasma ferritin concentration is recommended by WHO as a biomarker to assess iron status in individuals and populations.A systematic review was undertaken to summarise the evidence for ferritin reflecting iron status and to assess the cut-off points in different populations. Electronic databases were searched for studies evaluating ferritin (...) concentrations compared against bone marrow aspirates for iron deficiency and to liver biopsies for risk of iron overload.From 18822 records, 298 studies were assessed in full-text, including 72 studies on iron deficiency and 36 on iron overload in the quantitative analysis. All studies were observational. For iron deficiency, the mean ferritin concentration in healthy individuals was 15.1 μg/L (9 studies, 390 participants) when bone marrow iron content was 0, and 70.4 μg/L (3 studies, 151 participants) when

10. Limitations of Serum Ferritin in Diagnosing Iron Deficiency in Inflammatory Conditions (Full text)

Limitations of Serum Ferritin in Diagnosing Iron Deficiency in Inflammatory Conditions Patients with inflammatory conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), chronic heart failure (CHF), and chronic kidney disease (CKD) have high rates of iron deficiency with adverse clinical consequences. Under normal circumstances, serum ferritin levels are a sensitive marker for iron status but ferritin is an acute-phase reactant that becomes elevated in response to inflammation, complicating (...) the diagnosis. Proinflammatory cytokines also trigger an increase in hepcidin, which restricts uptake of dietary iron and promotes sequestration of iron by ferritin within storage sites. Patients with inflammatory conditions may thus have restricted availability of iron for erythropoiesis and other cell functions due to increased hepcidin expression, despite normal or high levels of serum ferritin. The standard threshold for iron deficiency (<30 μg/L) therefore does not apply and transferrin saturation

19. Estimating Iron Overload in Patients with Suspected Liver Disease and Elevated Serum Ferritin (Abstract)

Estimating Iron Overload in Patients with Suspected Liver Disease and Elevated Serum Ferritin Iron status evaluation in patients with suspected liver disease and elevated serum ferritin is often challenging because hyperferritinemia does not always indicate iron overload. A reliable approach to estimate iron overload without exposing the patient to unnecessary investigations would help the clinician to identify patients who may take advantage of iron-removal therapy.We analyzed all liver (...) biopsies, including measurement of hepatic iron concentration, performed at the University Hospital Zurich from 1997 to 2010 to identify clinical and laboratory predictors of iron overload in patients with elevated serum ferritin (n = 147).Hyperferritinemia was predictive of iron overload only in patients with a high level of serum ferritin (>2000 μg/L). In patients with moderate hyperferritinemia, liver transaminases inversely correlated with hepatic iron concentration. A combination of both
