IDA management & Treatment Options

IDA management & Treatment Options

If IDA is diagnosed, ongoing care is necessary to maintain iron levels that are most optimal to each patient’s health. Healthcare providers may recommend a change in diet and/or supplemental iron, such as oral or intravenous (IV) iron, to help treat IDA. Not all treatments are the same, so it's important to talk to your doctor about the most appropriate treatment plan for you to restore your iron levels.

There are benefits and risks for every treatment, so speak to your doctor about which option is right for you.

Patients should speak to their doctor about how to best manage their iron levels. Increasing a patient’s iron levels to sufficient values can take time.

If you or a loved one is living with risk factors or symptoms of IDA, it's important to establish a good relationship with your doctor so you can feel comfortable speaking openly about your health. If you are diagnosed with IDA, your doctor can help develop a treatment plan that best suits your individual needs.
