I have been reading that ferritin is the store of iron but hemoglobin is actually the amount of this in blood.

Does hemoglobin get sourced from ferritin? Is it possible for a person to be low on ferritin but normal on hemoglobin? Will he feel any symptoms of anaemia, if so?

Yes, of course it is. Ferritin is the superior Group.

Is it possible for a person to be low on ferritin but normal on hemoglobin?

Yes, since these things don't have something in common.

Will he feel any symptoms of anaemia, if so? Why should he?? No, he won't get any crazy feelings from this.
