Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

If your iron levels are low, despite taking iron pills, you may need an infusion. These can be done at your doctors office or at a local clinic. We cannot give a lab count as to what your iron levels are in order to require infusions - you will need to talk to your doctor about your options, depending on what is causing these low levels.
