(Intravenous Iron Replacement Therapy, Ferinject)
Do you suffer from low iron levels? Feeling tired or not yourself? Speak to your GP today for more information on whether an Iron infusion is suitable for you.
What is Iron Infusion Replacement Therapy?
An Iron Infusion, is a minor procedure performed in a safe environment, being monitored by both the GP & Nurse. The Iron is delivered into your vein through an Intravenous Cannula (IVC) which is the most effective delivery method for optimal absorption.
Iron is essential in the production of red blood cells, which helps transport oxygen to all your vital organs. The absence of red blood cells can result in development of chronic conditions such as anaemia, heart arrhythmias and more!

How long will it take till I feel better after treatment?
