Iron Deficiency

Your Mercy Family Medical Clinic Doctor will examine you and speak with you about your symptoms. If your doctor suspects an iron deficiency they will send you for a blood test, this is the only reliable way of telling if you do.

Your doctor may also send you for additional testing to find out what is causing the iron deficiency. This is to check whether a serious disease is causing the deficiency, and to provide the correct treatment for you.

Treating your

Iron Deficiency

Bringing your iron levels back to a healthy range can be done in a number of different ways including:

  • Eating foods high in iron
  • Eating foods high in Vitamin C helps you absorb iron
  • Consume less calcium, fibre, tea, coffee and wine which can reduce iron absorption
  • Take iron supplements
  • Have an intravenous infusion of iron at Mercy Family Medical Clinic, for extreme cases

    Speak with your doctor if you think you may be deficient in iron. Your doctor will work with you to diagnose you correctly and support you with the right action plan.
