There are two major ways to supplement iron, i.e. orally taking or intravenous injection. Orally taking iron agent is the most convenient way to add iron. Iron-dextrin and sucrose ferric hydroxide etc. are principle iron supplements. Unlike orally taking pills, intravenous injection might cause anaphylactic reaction. So the doctor should closely monitor conditions of patients.

The goal of iron tablets is that index of ferritin is around 400-800ug/L and saturation level of translocator is around 20-50%. Utilization and storage should be accessed regularly so as to decide a right way to supplement iron and its dosage.
