Iron deficiency arises when there are low levels of haemoglobin in the red blood cells. This can also be referred to as Anaemia. Factors such as digestive problems or blood loss could be the causes of iron deficiency.
The Mews Practice offers an intravenous treatment for patients experiencing low levels of haemoglobin, or where red blood cells are lower than normal. This intravenous treatment can be more effective, as iron is delivered in such a way that it bypasses the digestive process.
