Consider Expanding Use of Intravenous Iron to More Patients
You'll see expanded use of IV iron in medical patients.
More experts are advocating for IV iron replacement beyond patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). This is due to faster repletion...poor tolerability of oral iron...and low adverse event risk.
But IV iron costs about $250 or more for 1,000 mg...a typical dose in a non-CKD patient.
