24 May Can You Successfully Treat Iron Deficiency Anemia With IV Therapy?
We are able to treat iron deficiency anemia with our iron IV therapy. If you suspect you are iron deficient anemic or have already gotten a diagnosis, we can help you better understand this condition and how it is best to treat it. Iron deficiency anemia is the most common type of anemia. This condition happens when the body doesn’t contain enough iron to produce hemoglobin naturally. Hemoglobin is in the red blood cells, and it is included in a very important step to help the red blood cells to carry oxygen in the blood throughout the entire body. If there is not enough oxygen running throughout the body, our body can suffer consequences. You may feel exhausted and weak. Let’s look more into this condition.
A few different things can lead to the cause of iron deficiency anemia.
One of the most common causes is simply a lack of iron in the patient’s diet. Your body will get iron from many of the foods eaten. Common Iron-rich foods are eggs, meat, and leafy green vegetables. Children and adults need enough iron in their diet for proper development and health. Vegetarians are commonly iron deficient because getting as much iron from other sources may be more difficult than meat.
Inability to absorb iron
Iron from food will be absorbed directly into the bloodstream from the intestines. Some individuals with certain disorders such as celiac disease may not properly absorb certain nutrients from food. This can lead to iron deficiency anemia if other actions to supplement are not taken. Iron IV therapy is great for this.
Loss of blood
If you lose blood, you will lose some iron since blood is what contains iron within its red blood cells. Whether it’s blood loss from injury, frequent blood donations or a health condition, it is important to watch iron levels if you have lost any blood. Many conditions can cause the body to lose blood, such as gastrointestinal bleeding, certain hernias, ulcers, colon problems, and some kinds of cancers. These can lead to iron deficiency anemia. Even women with heavier menstrual cycles are at risk of developing this condition due to losing a lot of blood.
During pregnancy, the body needs more iron than before. It is very common for pregnant women to develop iron deficiency anemia.
Many people are unaware of what may be going on within the body. Some may be iron deficient and not even know it. The condition can be severe or so mild that it goes unnoticed for an extended amount of time. Some people do not know what kind of signs can be telling you that you may have iron deficiency anemia.
Some of the most common signs and symptoms may be detectable. Here are some symptoms that someone with this condition may have:
- Pale skin
- Extreme fatigue
- Cold hands and/or feet
- Chest pain
- Fast heartbeat
- Shortness of breath
- Inflammation of the tongue
- Brittle nails
- Poor appetite (This is especially common in iron-deficient children)
There is good news; it is most likely reversible. Iron deficiency anemia is usually treatable with iron supplementation. Iron IV therapy is going to be the best option for treating this condition in the fastest way possible. Let’s take a look at what IV therapy is and how it can help you.
What is IV therapy
IV therapy is a popular treatment in which vitamins and nutrients are delivered into the body with an intravenous drip infusion. This is the most efficient way to get these vitamins and nutrients needed directly into your bloodstream. With our iron IV therapy, we are able to deliver iron directly to your blood, so you will feel the benefits quickly.
Potential risks and side effects to consider before undergoing treatment
It is important to know that some mild side effects may come with undergoing an iron IV infusion. Don’t worry; it is usually nothing too serious. The benefits of this treatment will end up outweighing the risks. The most common side effect of an Iron IV treatment can be nausea. It is also common to feel chills. Some may also experience muscle pain during the infusion. It is also common to have some bruising from the needle site. Iron IV may make you feel more tired than usual after treatment. Making sure to get extra rest and hydration before undergoing treatment is recommended. One of the least common side effects of iron IV therapy that may be alarming to the patient is that it may cause dark or black stool. If you have gone through iron IV therapy and have any side effects you are unsure about, make sure to bring it up with our medical team.
Iron deficiency anemia is not something you want to self-diagnose or attempt to treat. Consulting with a doctor is very important if you suspect any kind of health issue, especially if you have any symptoms.
