Infusion Clinic (Iron & Vitamins and Osteoporosis)
What To Expect From An Iron Infusion
An iron infusion is when iron is delivered via an intravenous line into a person’s body. Increasing the amount of iron a person has in their blood can cure anemia or increase a low red blood cell count. The body uses iron to make hemoglobin.
Improvement Can be Gradual
It may take about 6-10 weeks after you complete your iron transfusion to feel better. The improvement will be gradual, but many people report feeling more energetic, sleeping better and improvement in mood and memory.
Are there any side effects?
Most side effects are minor and disappear within a few days. You may experience:
- Temporary changes in the way you taste food and drinks
- Nausea and vomiting
- Muscle and joint pain
- Shortness of breath
- Itchiness and rash
- Increased or decreased blood pressure or heart rate
- Burning sensation at the site of the injection
Once these side effects subside, patients report having more energy, better sleep, improved mood and a sharper memory.
Who should get an iron infusion?
IV iron may be necessary to treat iron deficiency in patients who do not absorb iron well from the food they digest, patients with severe iron deficiency, patients with chronic blood loss, patients who are receiving blood-building drugs or hormones. Book your appointment today!
Osteoporosis is a significant health concern that elevates the risk of fractures and can even lead to increased mortality rates. We offer two key treatments to address this issue:
- 6 monthly Prolia Injections: These injections are administered every six months to strengthen bone density and reduce the risk of fractures associated with osteoporosis.
- Annual Zoledronic acid (Aclasta) Infusions: these are another effective approach to managing osteoporosis, providing long-term benefits to bone health.
