IV iron infusion question

I have to get iron infusions because my iron and hemoglobin are low. For those in the states what infusion were you put on? What were your iron and hemoglobin numbers before infusion like. How many infusions did you get and what were your #'s after?

Hi there,
I have had a few IV infusions, I'm afraid I can't remember what it was called! I was about 6 (where the normal range is above 60). A few weeks after my most recent infusion, I had a blood test and was told my level was a bit TOO high!
Sorry i can't be more specific but hopefully it'll do good things to your energy levels - it certainly did for mine!

I had Feraheme infusions, 2 a week apart. It took about 5-6 weeks for the energy level to come up. My Hgb and Hct were normal, but ferritin was 10 before them and energy so low.
