Ferritin stores iron in the body. Ferritin fluctuates with iron levels; when iron levels are low, so are ferritin levels, which can cause symptoms of weakness, fatigue and dizziness. When there is an abundance of iron, there is an increase in ferritin, which can cause swelling of the liver and liver damage, fatigue, weight loss, weakness and sometimes darkening of the skin.
Ferritin is tested to identify the storage capacity of iron in the body.
