London Live – Living with Heart Disease
Professor Toby Richards features in the film and is a vascular surgeon for The Iron Clinic.
I did the 5km park run in 24:42 minutes this morning – before the iron I did it in 27:09. That’s a huge improvement, I’m really delighted and I felt much better doing it too.
Everyone was very attentive and reassuring. The consultation was good and very informative about iron deficiency. It was great to have acknowledgement that my symptoms were (likely) iron deficiency related. I could have talked through more about them. The end result so far though has been amazing – I feel like someone cleaned my glasses!
An excellent team of specialists. Very knowledgeable and they made sure to talk me through every step of the infusion.
I felt tired, faint and had suffered hair loss. Prof. Richards recommended an intravenous iron infusion which resulted in an improvement in both my energy levels and symptoms within the same week.
It has been really easy dealing with the Iron Clinic in every step of the process. I feel that the iron infusion has already made a difference, which is very promising.
The overall ambience was a mesh of professional, light hearted, knowledgeable and convivial.
