Iron deficiency anaemia is a condition where the body does not have enough red blood cells. Iron deficiency anaemia is typically treated with dietary changes and iron supplements that can be taken in pill form.
However, iron infusion may be recommended if the individual cannot take iron by mouth, cannot absorb iron adequately through the gut or cannot absorb enough iron due to blood loss. An individual may also require an iron infusion if they need to increase their iron levels quickly in order to avoid medical complications or a blood transfusion.
An iron infusion may take a few hours depending on the individual’s condition. An individual may require several infusions to increase their iron levels to the appropriate levels.
If this is the first time you are planning to receive iron infusion at our Medical Centre., the doctor will require consultation before infusion can take place. This is to ensure your medical needs are assessed to reduce any complications.
