Iron Toxicity Post #55: Ferritin is NOTHING, Hemosiderin is EVERYTHING!

Ferritin in the serum is a sign of tissue pathophysiology. Without the ceruloplasmin ferroxidase enzyme, iron doesn't load properly into ferritin. So it gets damaged and takes on the properties of hemosiderin where iron is stored and doesn't come out.
