Iron Infusion

Experiencing fatigue and lethargy?

Iron infusions are performed at Shenton Park General Practice.

General symptoms exhibited with low iron stores are fatigue and lethargy. Dizziness, light headedness and poor concentration can also occur along with other symptoms. Incorrect diet may be one reason for low iron, however other causes should be investigated.

An appointment with your doctor is essential for these reasons. Prior to performing an iron infusion, blood tests will be requested in order to check your iron levels and determine the dosage of iron you will receive during the infusion.

An iron infusion is a minor procedure in which iron is delivered to your body intravenously with the aim of replenishing your body’s iron stores. It will take approximately one hour.
