Iron therapy

Oral iron supplements are poorly absorbed and associated with side effects such as upset stomach, bloating, constipation, black stools, nausea and heartburn, which many people find problematic. The oral iron tablets can be ineffective or take several months for patients to gain any benefit. 

An intravenous iron infusion can restore the body's iron stores in a single 30 minute infusion! 

Before consultation, you will need a blood test to look for anaemia, check your iron status and determine whether you require an iron infusion.  

This can be requested through your GP, private providers or we can arrange these tests for you at Tetbury Hospital (additional fee required)

Once you have your blood test results you can send them for review free of charge by a specialist consultant.  We can then arrange a detailed consultation where they will discuss your symptoms, any relevant medical history, explore possible causes, explain the infusion and to determine a long term management plan.  The infusion of intravenous iron will be given, over 30 minutes, in a safe, monitored and comfortable environment.
