About Iron Infusions
At Browns Plains Medical Centre and Skin Cancer Clinic, we offer Iron Infusions as a treatment for Iron Deficiency.
Iron deficiency is one of the most common causes of feeling tired or fatigued. In Australia 34% of women of childbearing age and nearly 5% of healthy males are iron deficient.
Some causes of iron deficiency can include inadequate oral intake, such as being on a vegan or vegetarian diet. It can also be due to increased loss of iron, such as with heavy menstrual bleeding.
Many people do not tolerate oral iron tablets well, and they may be suitable for an iron infusion.
We also provide iron infusions in the 2nd and 3rd trimester of pregnancy.
At your first appointment, our doctors will take a thorough history of your symptoms, and may arrange some blood tests before planning the best treatment option for you.
If you have been advised to get an iron infusion by your GP, please bring all your previous blood reports with you with iron studies included.
Iron infusions incur an out - of - pocket cost, please give us a call to enquire further. For further information, please visit our Contact Us Page.
