Many possible causes: This means that there may be excess iron in your body. Find out the normal values for your laboratory? This differs depending on the laboratory doing the test. If your ferritin is actually elevated, taking iron supplements may be a cause. Liver disease or a disorder called hemochromatosis can also elevate the ferritin. Speak with your doctor.
