Iron infusions offer numerous benefits and play a vital role in addressing iron deficiency, low ferritin levels and related conditions.
Iron infusions are a form of intravenous therapy that delivers iron directly into your bloodstream. This method is beneficial when oral iron supplements are not well-absorbed or tolerated by the body. The infusion provides a more efficient way of replenishing iron levels and promoting optimal health.
BENEFITS & ADVANTAGES
OF IRON INFUSIONS
Rapid and Effective Iron Restoration
Iron infusions offer a quick and efficient way to replenish iron stores in the body. By delivering iron directly into your bloodstream, it bypasses the digestive system, ensuring better absorption and utilization of this essential mineral.
Increased Energy and Improved Well-being
Iron plays a crucial role in the production of hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout the body. By replenishing iron levels, iron infusions can enhance oxygen transport, leading to increased energy levels, improved stamina, and an overall sense of well-being.
Treatment of Iron Deficiency Anemia
Iron deficiency anemia occurs when the body lacks sufficient iron to produce an adequate number of healthy red blood cells. Iron infusions can effectively address this condition, helping to restore iron levels, stimulate red blood cell production, and alleviate symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, and shortness of breath.
Improved Cognitive Function
Iron is essential for optimal brain function and cognitive development. Iron infusions can support cognitive health by ensuring an adequate supply of iron to the brain, which may enhance concentration, memory, and overall cognitive performance.
Enhanced Immune Function
Iron plays a critical role in maintaining a healthy immune system. By supporting iron levels through infusions, you can boost your immune function, helping your body fight off infections and illness more effectively.
Reduced Risks and Side Effects
Iron infusions are generally well-tolerated, and the risk of gastrointestinal side effects commonly associated with oral iron supplements is minimized. This makes it an excellent option for individuals who cannot tolerate or absorb oral iron.
WHAT TO EXPECT
To ensure the accuracy and safety of iron infusions, patients will be scheduled for a consultation with one of our nurse practitioners prior to receiving an iron infusion. As well, certain labs and assessments are required before the procedure and can be conducted in-house. These may include a complete blood count (CBC), iron studies, ferritin levels, and potentially other blood tests to evaluate your iron status and rule out any underlying conditions that may affect iron metabolism.
When undergoing an iron infusion, it's important to remember that the procedure is performed by our trained medical professionals in a controlled environment. We will closely monitor you throughout the process, ensuring your safety and comfort.
