  1. Thirst

    Have you been tested for anemia? When my levels were very low--I was thirsty all the time and craved ice. Now that I have had several iron therapy sessions I am not thirsty all the time. Vicki
  2. 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??? Vicki
  3. 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
