Private Iron Clinic
Globally, anaemia affects 1.6 billion people (25% of the world’s population) and is more
common in women, especially during and after pregnancy and associated with heavy
periods. It is also more common in people with a vegetarian or vegan diet and in athletes.
Iron deficiency is the most common nutrient disorder in the world and the most common
cause of anaemia worldwide.
B12 deficiency is also known as Pernicious Anaemia. B12 deficiency and Pernicious Anaemia are one and the same thing. Patients are rarely anaemic as such but the symptoms come from the low levels of B12.
Signs & Symptoms
The most common symptoms are fatigue, exhaustion, brain fog and restless legs.
We offer an intravenous infusion of iron in 30 mins, which is the equivalent of taking iron tablets for 2 years.
Dr Andrew Klein is a Consultant Anaesthetist working at Royal Papworth Hospital and the Nuffield Hospital in Cambridge with a special interest in Iron Deficiency Anaemia. He is conducting research into the use of intravenous iron to treat iron deficiency in different patient groups.
