Si votre corps manque d’oxygène en raison d’une carence en fer, il se peut que vous soyez fatigué ou essoufflé. On appelle cela l’anémie ferriprive. Beaucoup de patients atteints d’insuffisance rénale chronique (IRC) ou dialysés souffrent d’anémie, car ils n’ont pas assez de globules rouges, et le corps a besoin de fer pour les fabriquer. Prendre du fer par injection permet donc au corps d’avoir suffisamment de fer pour fabriquer de l’hémoglobine, c’est-à-dire la protéine qui transporte l’oxygè…

Abstract
Si votre corps manque d’oxygène en raison d’une carence en fer, il se peut que vous soyez fatigué ou essoufflé. On appelle cela l’anémie ferriprive. Beaucoup de patients atteints d’insuffisance rénale chronique (IRC) ou dialysés souffrent d’anémie, car ils n’ont pas assez de globules rouges, et le corps a besoin de fer pour les fabriquer. Prendre du fer par injection permet donc au corps d’avoir suffisamment de fer pour fabriquer de l’hémoglobine, c’est-à-dire la protéine qui transporte l’oxygène. Ce dépliant explique comment prendre du fer injectable, ses effets possibles et comment le conserver.
This pamphlet is a French translation of the English pamphlet 1495, "Injectable Iron and Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)". If your body is not getting enough oxygen due to lack of iron, you may feel tired or short of breath. This is called iron deficiency anemia. Many patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), or who are on dialysis, have anemia because their red blood cells are low. The body needs iron to help make new red blood cells. Getting iron injections can help make sure that you have enough iron in your body to make the oxygen-carrying part (hemoglobin) of your red blood cells. This pamphlet explains how to take injectable iron, side effects to watch for, and instructions on how to store the medication.
