Iron deficiency is common in Australia, with 1 in 8 people aged over 2yo not getting enough iron.
Women aged 18-30 are most commonly affected by low iron levels, and for those who cannot get or absorb enough iron from their diet, or who cannot tolerate oral iron supplements, an iron infusion is another way to boost iron stores.
Typically, heavy periods, vegan/vegetarian diets, pregnancy and breastfeeding as well as other malabsorptive conditions and some chronic diseases can result in low iron stores.
Symptoms of iron deficiency can vary depending on the severity, including but not limited to; tiredness and fatigue, light headed, dizzyness, shortness of breath and palpitations.
