Iv Iron Therapt
0

4 posts in this topic

Hi. I was diagnosed with celiac disease in March. It was discovered after I was found to be very anemic. I had blood tests and a biopsy. Now my iron levels are still not great so they have decided to do iron by IV. Has anyone had this? I had one treatment last week and am scheduled for one a week for the next month.

Thanks!

Vicki

By iv do you mean injections?- i was first diagnosed with pernicious aneamia, and had a course of 2 needles a week, then it went to 1 a month and now they are every 4 months, my coeliac symptoms started after this, and it took 6 months to be diagnosed with it.- ju

Good morning. My doctors have called it IV Therapy. It is an actual IV of iron. I went for my first treatment last Friday. I am receiving these treatments at the cancer center with the chemo patients. Pretty weird. They started with a smaller, "test" dosage. Then I waited an hour to see if I had any reactions and when I didn't, I received a full dose. I was there, hooked up to an IV for over 3 hours. Very tedious... I have treatments scheduled for every Friday this month. Does this sound familiar to anyone???

Yes. I do the same thing. About every four months. 1 Gram if iron; 8 sessions; 125 mg each time. Takes about 4 hours door to door and a bruised elbow!
