Iron sucrose (Venofer®) and sodium ferric gluconate complex (Ferrlecit®) are injectable forms of iron that help your body make hemoglobin, which is found in your red blood cells. When there is not enough iron, red blood cells won't have enough hemoglobin to carry oxygen throughout your body. People with chronic kidney disease often have anemia because their red blood cell count is low.

Abstract
Iron sucrose (Venofer®) and sodium ferric gluconate complex (Ferrlecit®) are injectable forms of iron that help your body make hemoglobin, which is found in your red blood cells. When there is not enough iron, red blood cells won't have enough hemoglobin to carry oxygen throughout your body. People with chronic kidney disease often have anemia because their red blood cell count is low. This pamphlet explains how to take the medicine, side effects to watch for, as well as instructions for how to store the medication.

Abstract
Iron Physiology and Pathophysiology in Humans provides health professionals in many areas of research and practice with the most up-to-date and well-referenced volume on the importance of iron as a nutrient and its role in health and disease. This important new volume is the benchmark in the complex area of interrelationships between the essentiality of iron, its functions throughout the body, including its critical role in erythropoiesis, the biochemistry and clinical relevance of iron-containing enzymes and other molecules involved in iron absorption, transport and metabolism, the importance of optimal iron status on immune function, and links between iron and the liver, heart, brain and other organs. Moreover, the interactions between genetic and environmental factors and the numerous co-morbidities seen with both iron deficiency and iron overload in populations at risk are clearly delineated so that students as well as practitioners can better understand the complexities of these interactions. Key features of the volume include an in-depth index and recommendations and practice guidelines are included in relevant chapters. The volume contains more than 100 detailed tables and informative figures and up-to-date references that provide the reader with excellent sources of information about the critical role of iron nutrition, optimal iron status and the adverse clinical consequences of altered iron homeostasis. Iron Physiology and Pathophysiology in Humans is an excellent new text as well as the most authoritative resource in the field.

Iron is needed by your red blood cells to help carry oxygen through your body. People with chronic kidney disease (CKD) often have anemia (not enough red blood cells or hemoglobin in the blood). Oral irons, such as ferrous sulfate, ferrous gluconate, ferrous fumarate, Proferrin® and FeraMAX® 150, will give you enough iron to make sure your body gets enough oxygen. How to take these medicines and what side effects to watch for are reviewed.
