There are a three ways in which iron levels can be replenished; orally, intramuscularly, and intravenously.
Oral iron has the advantage of being simple and cost-effective, but is limited by side-effects, poor compliance, poor absorption, slow effect and low efficacy. Intramuscular iron is relatively slow and requires multiple injections (typically in the buttock) over a period of time and frequently causes pain and discomfort as well as permanent stains on the overlying skin. However, providing iron by infusion allows for rapid restoration of the body’s healthy iron levels with relatively few side effects.
