Iron is required by our bodies and is used to make haemoglobin which is the part of the red blood cells that moves oxygen around our body. For some people their bodies do not make enough iron and they may require medication to assist with this. If tablet or liquid medication is not effective then iron needs to be administered into a patients vein directly and this is called an iron infusion.
