Iron infusion for teen's low ferritin?
Hi Everyone. Does anyone have experience with iron infusions at Walnut Creek Kaiser, or anywhere else? My teen has had low ferritin, as low as 13 and after years of supplementation is looking at iron infusions. (The doctor says that she is not anemic but I don't really understand how that is possible with low ferritin for so long.) She has never had heavy periods. Eats a healthy diet. Plenty of C. Putting her on the pill helped it go up to 30, it should be 75, and it turns out the pill isn't good for females in our family.
Has anyone had this experience? And how did it help? Sleep? Energy? Mood?
