Dear Erica

Thank you for visiting

Please be so kind as to advise me about what type of intravenous treatment are you receiving, as this will be helpful with informing you about the side-effects. Also be so kind as to advise what the reason is for your low iron count and to provide us with your blood results.

I apologise for not being able to provide you with answers but I need more information.
