At HHMP we are able to provide iron infusions for our patients with iron deficiency anaemia, when oral iron preparations are ineffective or cannot be used. Iron is an essential element required for oxygen-carrying capacity of haemoglobin in red blood cells and myoglobin in muscle tissue. Iron infusion replenishes the body’s iron stores and remedy iron deficiency anaemia. HHMP follows a strict protocol and uses only sterile equipment to make iron infusions safe for patients.
Sometimes patients with significant dehydration may need IV fluids to help them recover quicker. At HHMP we can offer this in our treatment room thus saving the patient from having to go to hospital.
Multiple patients are seen in our treatment for a range of injections. These may include, desensitisation injections for allergy, medications for osteoporosis and injections for cancer treatment. We do not perform all infusions or injections at HHMP we only use injections or infusions with solid scientific basis for serious clinical need. We do not perform any cosmetic injectables and do not offer vitamin or similar infusions. We understand that various clinics offer a range of such infusions and some patients may consider these options, in which case we ask that you discuss this with your doctor to check for interactions with other medications you may be on.
