BENEFITS OF IV IRON Infusions

Red blood cells are responsible for carrying oxygen around the body to fuel cell function. Because iron is important in the process of making red blood cells, an iron deficiency can lead to a number of problems. Therefore, if you have an iron deficiency, replenishing iron levels by having an IV Iron Infusion may have a number of benefits that reverse the symptoms. These benefits may include:

  • Improving energy levels
  • Improving your ability to breathe (less shortness of breath) and reducing chest pains
  • Reducing fatigue and increasing motivation
  • Reducing muscle weakness
  • Reducing headaches, dizziness and light-headedness

What are the symptoms of iron deficiency?

Are you sick and tired of just feeling fatigued? Unfortunately iron deficiencies are extremely common. Symptoms include fatigue (in some cases severe fatigue), physical weakness, pale skin, brittle nails, chest pain, dizziness, light-headedness and headaches. In some cases, people with an iron deficiency may also experience poor appetite, unusual cravings and cold hands and feet.

Are you iron deficient?

If you think you might have an iron deficiency, you should see a doctor.

Your doctor might recommend a blood test. A blood test will be accurate in determining what the root cause of your symptoms could be. For instance, fatigue can be caused by a number of deficiencies so it’s always safe to get a blood test first.

Who can benefit from Iron IV Infusions?

Ideally, Iron IV therapy can be beneficial for those who have already completed a 3 month trial utilising conventional oral iron supplements. Once it is deemed that the oral iron replacement therapy has failed – generally due to tolerance issues and side effects such as constipation; or in some cases due to an absorption issue.

It is at this point that your doctor might recommend utilising IV Iron solutions. IV Iron Infusions are one of the best treatment options for those needing iron supplementation and that have failed at restoring their ideal iron levels with a conventional oral supplementation plan.

Besides that, it is very important to get the right dosage of iron as prescribed by your doctor. This is where IV Iron Infusions come into play by maximising the amount of iron assimilated by your system.

An iron infusion delivered directly into your bloodstream allows your body to access 100% of the nutrients. On the other hand, the digestive system’s ability to absorb nutrients will vary person to person. This means that an IV iron infusion can offer a relatively more consistent outcome for people with an iron deficiency.

How to get an IV Iron Infusion: the process explained

In order to get your Iron Infused IV treatment underway, you will need to follow 4 easy steps

If you believe that you are some experiencing symptoms of an iron deficiency, then you can follow these steps for an effective treatment option.

1

Diagnosis

You should discuss your concerns with your doctor first. He or she will determine if your health issues are caused by an iron deficiency and whether or not iron supplementation is required. A blood test might be required as part of the diagnosis process.

2

Get a prescription and a referral letter

Once your doctor has identified your iron deficiency and prescribed iron supplementation, ask them about Iron Infused IV therapy. An IV iron infusion is a great treatment option as it allows your body to absorb the supplement far more efficiently than an oral alternative. You doctor will then provide you with a prescription for a soluble iron solution/infusion. Please make sure to bring this along with your referral letter from your doctor approving the treatment when you come in for your treatment.

3

Pick up your iron infusion

You’ll need to take your prescription to a pharmacy where they will prepare the prescribed dosage.

4

Bring your iron infusion to the IV Klinik

For the safe and professional administration of your prescribed dosage, bring your iron infusion, prescription and referral letter to the IV Klinik. Our medical professionals will then take care of administering your IV Iron Infusion safely and effectively.

How long after an IV iron infusion will I feel better?

It may take around 6-12 weeks after the IV iron infusion is administered for you to feel better. However, patients should notice improvements gradually. This may include improvements in energy, strength, quality sleep, mood and memory.

This treatment option is great news for those who have tried oral iron replacement therapy for 3 months or more with no apparent results. It should also be noted that approximately 1% of patients may experience an allergic reaction to the iron infusion.
