Chronic Disease Management
Iron infusion is a procedure in which iron is delivered to your body intravenously, meaning into a vein through a needle. This method of delivering medication or supplementation is also known as an intravenous (IV) infusion.
Iron infusions are usually prescribed by doctors to treat iron deficiency anemia. Iron deficiency anemia is typically treated with dietary changes and iron supplements that you take in pill form. In some cases, though, doctors may recommend iron infusions instead.
You may require an IV infusion if you:
- can’t take iron by mouth
- can’t absorb iron adequately through the gut
- can’t absorb enough iron due to blood loss
- need to increase iron levels fast to avoid medical complications or a blood transfusion
For convenience we offer iron infusions within the Medical Centre. Our Iron Infusion Clinic is held on Thursdays and Fridays each week. The fee for the infusion is $150 payable on the day. For further information please speak to you GP.
