The most common way to treat iron deficiency anaemia (IDA) is to take an oral iron supplement, either as a tablet or liquid. This works well for most people and is usually tried first. Some people with IDA find that iron supplements don’t return their iron to adequate levels. This might be because the supplement has side effects which cause discomfort (e.g. stomach upsets, constipation) or it is not taken as prescribed so is not effective. Another possible reason is that the iron supplement is not being absorbed properly in the gut. Iron infusions are prescribed for IDA when oral iron has not been tolerated, effective or thought not to work as quickly as necessary. Before prescribing an iron infusion, your doctor will consider if the benefits of the iron infusion outweigh the risks of side effects in your particular case.
