I have just finished my 3rd dose of IV Venofer. My MD expects that I will need 5-8 doses to replete my ferritin and correct my anemia. I am wondering what kind of improvement people have experienced in their CBC and ferritin levels, following a full 1000mg of Venofer. The literature, I have read, reports quite modest improvement in both of these markers after Venofer but the sample patients all had end stage renal failure. I do not have renal problems.

The studies indicated that the average rise in Hgb was around 1.2 gm/dL. It was quite disheartening to read. I am hoping for much better results. I had 6 doses of IV Ferrlecit last year and my ferritin only bumped from 1 ng/ml up to 14 ng/ml.

My hematologist does not plan to check my counts until 1 week after the 5th dose. I would love to hear of other people's experiences. Thanks so much.

Sincerely, Kiwilily
