My niece had blood work done on 12/31. The results came back with hemoglobin 8.2 and ferritin 2. Her pediatrician put her on iron pills which made her really sick so he switched her to liquid iron. Yesterday she had more blood work done and her hemoglobin is now 9.1 and ferritin 1. Has anyone had their teenager do IV infusions to help get their numbers up faster? I'm really upset that her pediatrician would not send her to a hematologist three weeks ago.

If she was an adult they would have put her on infusions already. My numbers were lower than hers and I just finished 18 Venofer IV infusions. I would recommend it to anyone with low numbers. The IV infusions were easy and very fast. My numbers are 14.8 and 235 ferritin and my doctor is pleased.

If anyone could help me I would appreciate it. Thanks!
