*IV iron infusion only available at DTAP @Holland Village.
There are many types of nutritional deficiencies, but the most common one include iron deficiency, vitamin B12 deficiency, and vitamin D deficiency. Additional symptoms include:
- Brain fog
- Decreased exercise tolerance
- Thinning hair and brittle nails
- Muscle weakness and cramps
- Numbness, feeling of pins and needles
- Bone pain
- Mood changes
Some ways to mitigate nutritional deficiencies can be through treatment such as IV iron infusion.
Intravenous (IV) iron infusion is a procedure of replacing iron into the body of someone who has insufficient iron stores directly through a cannula in the vein. It is a safe, rapid, and more effective way to treat iron deficiency and leads to an improvement or resolution of symptoms within days to weeks.
The procedure takes between 15 – 30 minutes either through injection into the vein or infusion with an IV drip, with a 20 – 30 minutes observation period after completion.
