Has anyone ever had Feraheme iv infusion for chronic kidney disease caused by diabetes? I have read horror stories on the internet about bad reactions to it. I am due for my first infusion next week for low iron because my kidney function is compromised.
I've had Venofer (I believe that's the brand name) on many occasions and have had no problems. I believe the older stuff they used to use had problems, but the new stuff is much better. I've never had a reaction. I'm going again next week.
Thanks for replying to my question. I am due to have Feraheme infusion next week with another infusion to follow 7 days later. Does your infusions make you feel better? I haven't noticed any effects of the low iron as yet. I really didn't think I was that low, but my hematologist says I need it.
