How It Works

Ferric Carboxymaltose is an iron replacement therapy used to treat iron deficiency anemia. It works by providing a source of iron, which is essential for the production of hemoglobin in red blood cells. Hemoglobin carries oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. Iron deficiency leads to decreased hemoglobin levels and reduced oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood. Ferric Carboxymaltose replenishes iron stores in the body, helping to restore hemoglobin levels and alleviate symptoms of anemia.
