Do you suffer from low iron?
If you’re anaemic or have trouble tolerating iron supplements, you could benefit from an iron infusion. An iron infusion delivers iron directly into the bloodstream through a vein. Iron is an essential mineral assisting the body to carry oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body, amongst other important functions. There are risks and benefits to having an iron infusion, and your doctor can explain these to you at a consultation.
What are the symptoms of iron deficiency and who is at risk?
Iron deficiency symptoms include:
- Low energy
- Feeling cold
- Infections due to low immunity
The iron infusion replenishes iron stores, allowing the normal production of haemaglobin. The process takes approximately 1 hour.
If you think you may benefit from an iron infusion, please make an appointment with one of our doctors.
