Iron deficiency is also know an Anaemia. Anemia occurs when there are low levels of haemoglobin in the red bloods cells. Issues such as blood loss or digestive problems may lead of an iron deficiency and anaemia. Providing iron intravenously can be more effective as it relies on the iron being delivered in a way that bypasses the digestive process.
The Mews Practice provides an intravenous treatment for patients who have low levels of iron in the body. Over time low levels of iron can lead to anaemia, where haemoglobin levels are low or red blood cells are fewer than normal.
