If the iron levels in your body are low you can become iron deficient. This is the most common nutrient deficiency in the world.
Iron deficiency can occur before you become anaemic. As your iron stores run low, over time, this means that the body makes fewer healthy red blood cells, and leads to iron deficiency anaemia (IDA).
There are many symptoms of iron deficiency, including feeling fatigued or exhausted. Iron deficiency can affect both mental health (brain fog, inability to think clearly, anxiety or depression) and physical health (palpitations, air hunger, chest pain, headaches, itching, bruising and in severe cases; restless legs or pica (eating ice).
If iron deficiency is not treated there can be long-term consequences for your health. Fatigue and other symptoms of iron deficiency can also adversely affect your quality of life and reduce your ability to function, concentrate and be productive at work.
The Iron Clinic specialises in the provision of intravenous iron infusions. The Iron Clinic was established in 2014 and specialise in iron deficiency and iron therapy with experience of over 5000 iron infusions.
We routinely treat women and men with iron deficiency and provide a detailed review to ensure the underlying cause is investigated and managed with a clear treatment plan for patients that includes diet, options for tablets and iron infusions.
For many women the common causes are heavy period or childbirth. An iron infusion is very effective to rapidly correct iron deficiency and anaemia with proven benefits include, vitality, increase quality of life, benefit hair growth, libido, and also improved exercise ability.
Intravenous iron is also beneficial in many illnesses associated with iron deficiency and anaemia, such as; gastrointestinal disease, heart disease, cancer therapy and patients undergoing operations.
