Iron Infusion

The most common way to treat iron deficiency is to take iron by mouth as a tablet or liquid.  This works well for most people and is usually tried first.  Some people may need iron to be given straight into the body through a vein.  This is called an intravenous (IV) iron infusion.  The iron is given through a needle and dripped (infused) into your vein.  Sometimes 2 iron infusions (given at least 1 week apart) are needed to fully top up iron stores.  The infusion is made up of iron, not blood.


IV iron may be needed if you:

  • Are not able to take iron tablets/liquid
  • Are not responding to iron tablets/liquid or not absorbing them
  • Need to get iron levels up quickly ie prior to major surgery, late pregnancy or to avoid blood transfusion
  • If you have chronic kidney disease or chronic heart failure
