An impaired iron balance of the body can frequently be described as a discordant regulation of synthesis of ferritin, the iron storage protein, on the one hand, and of the transferrin receptor, the indicator of iron demand and erythropoietic activity, on the other. This is particularly true if iron deficiency or iron overload are not complicated by additional diseases such as inflammations, tumors or renal failure.
