Does any one here have experience with this type of iron infusion? This is what my hematologist uses. My doc is really pushing me to get infusions as I have no iron in my bone marrow and I'm feeling pretty rotten right now. My hemoglobin is around 11 so not terribly low but my RBC's and hematocrit are low as well. I'm scared to death of the infusions as I seem to react to everything. I have been taking an Iron supplement and it doesn't bother me too much. My doc just said it would take so long to build it up in my system with the supplements (if I even absorb them) she would rather do an infusion. I'm not sure of the cause of my anemia but probably a combination of diet and periods. I stopped eating red meat a couple of years ago and was hardly eating other meat for a while. Also, I drink tea all the time so any iron I was getting from diet probably isn't being absorbed.
