Iron Infusions

Iron Infusions

Iron deficiency (with or without anaemia) can be a cause of numerous symptoms:

Tiredness, shortness of breath, pale complexion and mucous membranes, fatigue, poor sleep, lack of concentration, mood swings, anxiety and even altered blood pressure and heart rate (to name a few). The symptoms of iron deficiency can mimic a multitude of health issues and it is vital that other causes for these symptoms are investigated.

Your treating practitioner may offer the service of an iron infusion to you.  This is a specific appointment type which incurs fees due to medicare not designating an item number other than the GP time to this service.  It also takes considerable time with a registered nurse.

Tewantin Medical Centre offers iron infusions and are conducted routinely at our centre.
