Have you been feeling tired and low in energy? Are you anaemic or having trouble tolerating iron supplements? It’s possible that you may be low in iron and would benefit from an iron infusion.
Women are more susceptible to iron deficiency than men, which can be due to heavy menstrual cycles or even postmenopausal symptoms or childbirth. Low iron can have an effect not just on your energy levels, but your mood and even your memory.
Iron infusions are usually used to treat iron deficiency anaemia. This deficiency is typically treated with dietary changes and iron supplements, but in some cases, your GP might recommend iron infusions instead.
Gold Coast Women’s Health offers Iron Infusions to our patients. Make an appointment today to see one of our Women’s Health doctors if you have any questions or concerns.
