Iron deficiency is a common problem that effects millions of people every year.
Anemia causes common symptoms such as:
Chest pain, fast heartbeat or shortness of breath
Headache, dizziness or lightheadedness
Cold hands and feet
Inflammation or soreness of your tongue
Unusual cravings for non-nutritive substances, such as ice, dirt or starch
Poor appetite, especially in infants and children with iron deficiency anemia
Iron can be taken by mouth as a way to supplement iron levels. Iron normally comes through the foods that we eat every day.
Iron taken by mouth can be hard on some people's stomachs. This leaves many people looking for a solution. If you think that your iron levels are low, schedule to have your blood tested. A low iron level that does not improve with diet and supplements may make you eligible for a new iron treatment called Injectafer.
Injectafer is a new iron replacement infusion that works to get your iron levels up rapidly. Call us to schedule a consult if you feel that you may be anemic and are looking for a solution to your symptoms.
