Iron Infusions available at KPMC-Hillside with Dr Jason Wu

We are pleased to offer iron infusion treatments to help combat iron deficiency and boost your energy levels. Our bodies need iron to make haemoglobin – the part of our red blood cells that carries oxygen around our body. It is also important for muscle strength, energy and good mental function. If your iron levels are low this may make you feel tired and not able to do normal daily activities.

Symptoms of Iron Deficiency

Symptoms of iron deficiency can range from mild to severe and typically present in the following:

  • Fatigue
  • Pale skin
  • Physical weakness
  • Chest pain, fast heartbeat or shortness of breath
  • Headaches or dizziness
  • Coldness in hands and feet
  • Sore tongue
  • Brittle nails
  • Unusual food cravings for things like ice and starch
  • Poor appetite

An iron infusion delivers iron directly into the bloodstream through a vein. They are considered safe and effective.

Please read the following information to guide you through the process:

Step 1: Your Initial Appointment 

An initial appointment is necessary before undergoing an iron infusion to ensure the best possible care. During this appointment, the GP will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your medical history, symptoms, and iron levels. This evaluation will help determine if an iron infusion is the appropriate treatment for you. To schedule your initial appointment, please reach out to our clinic via phone at 9217 9400 to speak to one of our lovely receptionists.


Step 2: Iron Infusion Appointment

Once your initial consultation is complete and your treatment plan is established, we will schedule your iron infusion appointment. Our goal is to create a comfortable and safe environment for your treatment. During the infusion, our highly skilled medical team of GP and Nurses will administer the iron solution intravenously, closely monitoring your progress and well-being throughout the procedure.


Step 3: Follow-up and Ongoing Care

After your iron infusion, we will provide you with instructions for post-treatment care. We will also schedule a follow-up appointment to monitor your progress, assess your response to the infusion, and make any necessary adjustments to your ongoing care plan. Your well-being is our priority, and we are committed to supporting you throughout your journey to optimal health.
