My Ferritin level is 29.7. I know that I need to get it up to 100-350 range and the best possibly only way to get my levels up that high is an IV iron infusion.
Even though I've explained the situation that RLS suffers needed higher levels, and just how hard it can be to obtain those levels with oral iron, my doctor just doesn't get it. and won't give me iv iron. She wants me to take oral iron for a couple months and re-asses. meanwhile I have to continue to suffer.
She also mentioned that it would be very difficult/ impossible to get insurance to cover an IV iron infusion.
how does one go about getting a doctor to give you an IV iron infusion and is there a trick to get insurance to cover it?
