The ferritin is a type of protein that stores the molecules of iron that the body can draw on if it needs more iron. The high range is still not bad and might be lower on a different day.

There are iron overload diseases but your doctor or hematologist would discuss those diseases with you. Just having a diet high in red meat or other iron containing foods would cause a temporary high. Lack of excerise or too much exercise can also be a problem. At any rate your values seem to be in the middle except for the Ferritin and that will shift from time to time on blood tests. These are only ranges that are true for the age group that were tested. If you are younger the values may be lower and if you are older the range level may be higher and still be normal.
