If you are anaemic or have trouble tolerating iron supplements then you could greatly benefit from an iron infusion. Iron is an essential mineral that assists with many important bodily functions.
Iron helps carry oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. Therefore, when your iron levels are low you may experience extreme fatigue and may not be able to complete all your normal daily functions.
Lack of iron can be dangerous and cause many side effects including:
- Chest pain
- Shortness of breath
- Infections due to low immunity
- Feeling cold
How does an iron infusion work? This procedure is quite straightforward and takes approximately 30 minutes. The iron infusion is administered intravenously and is then attached to a drip containing iron mixed with saline. This works to restore your iron levels to a healthy range much faster than supplements.
How do I book an iron infusion? You can easily book an appointment with one of our doctors in Coolangatta on the Gold Coast to do an iron infusion with bulk billing available with most but not all our doctors for pension and concession and DVA cardholders as well as children under 16. Our team works together to help treat those who may be anaemic or low in iron levels.
