Iron Infusion

Slow infusion of iron for maximum absorption

2-3 hours


How to Book: Book one 2-3 hour treatments after obtaining blood work showing iron-deficient anemia. We will need a copy of your blood work prior to your first appointment. Depending upon your deficiency, we may recommend 1 or more additional treatments. After you complete your in-office treatments, we may recommend an oral supplement to take daily for 120 days to maintain your iron levels.

IV Therapy Doc's Iron Infusion Treatment can successfully treat anemia associated with low iron stores. Iron deficiency anemia, diagnosed with a blood test, is a condition in which the body lacks sufficient iron to produce an adequate number of red blood cells. Iron deficiency anemia can lead to symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, shortness of breath, and pale skin. Our Iron InfusionTreatment is typically recommended when oral iron supplements are not well-tolerated, not effective, or when iron levels need to be rapidly restored. We cannot bill insurance for this treatment.

Some benefits of IV iron therapy for iron deficiency anemia include:

  1. Rapid Improvement: IV iron therapy allows for a more rapid increase in iron levels compared to oral iron supplements, which can take weeks to show significant effects.

  2. Enhanced Tolerance: Some individuals may experience gastrointestinal side effects (such as nausea, constipation, or upset stomach) from oral iron supplements, which can be avoided with IV iron therapy.

  3. Efficient Absorption: Intravenous administration bypasses the gastrointestinal tract, ensuring that a larger proportion of the iron reaches the bloodstream for absorption.

  4. Improved Quality of Life: Treating iron deficiency anemia with IV iron therapy can lead to an improvement in symptoms and an overall increase in energy levels and well-being.

  5. Suitable for Certain Medical Conditions: IV iron therapy may be the preferred option for individuals with certain medical conditions, such as inflammatory bowel disease or malabsorption disorders, which can hinder oral iron absorption.
