IV Iron Infusion
Iron, one of the mineral in the body, helps to make up hemoglobin, the substance in red blood cells that helps blood carry oxygen throughout the body. If you do not have enough iron, your body cannot make hemoglobin, and you may develop anemia. This is known as iron-deficiency anemia, the most common type of anemia. We will perform a blood test to see if you are anemic.
