is a level of 17.50 in ferritin blood test consider low in a male 66 years old
The normal level of ferritin varies between men and women: The lower the ferritin level, even within the "normal" range, the more likely it is that the patient does not have enough iron. Once the level dips below this range they are classified as being anemic and should see a hemotologist and a gastroenterologist for additional diagnostic tests and treatment. Normal ferritin levels follow: Male: 12-300 ng/mL Female: 12-150 ng/mL Note: ng/ml = nanograms per milliliter http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003490.htm
Have ferritin level of 587 & a fatty liver & cholesterol of 6.9
Ferritin is a protein that stores iron. Low ferritin is a precursor to anemia, so if you do nothing about the low ferritin level your iron level will eventually drop.
Ferritin level tells the amount of iron in your blood. Ferritin is stored in red blood cells, so I guess you could call it "backup iron." Male: 12-300 ng/mL Female: 12-150 ng/mL That's a big range, so your physician may want to supplement your iron even though it's within the normal range.
what is normal cholesterol level for 50 year old female
Usually, yes. Most labs list about 10-300 as the normal ferritin level. Inflammation can raise the level even if the iron is low so it is helpful to also check iron and TIBC (total iron binding capacity).
If you have a ferritin level of 600, it means your levels are increased. This can be caused by an inflammatory disorder, liver disease, and too much iron in your body.
