Dear doctor what is the best way to fulfill the iron deficiency without using iron sucrose injections and tabs.
Diet is the rich source, try to take more of iron, jaggery, pomegranate, beetroot, green leafy vegetables etc. Instead of injections take iron, folic acid supplements.

Dear Lybrate user, If you have Thalassemia, iron sucrose should not be taken. Consult Physician/ Hematologist regarding this. Various daals (specially sabut) and milk (and milk products) are good sources of protein.

Hi. Can we give 5 orofer s injections at a time in 1 unit NS. Orofer 1 ampoule contains 100 mg/5 ml of iron sucrose. So instead of giving orofer fcm which contains 500 mg/10 ml, can we replace it with 5 ampoules of orofer s. Thanks.

Follow your ongoing doctor advice and if he asks for orofer fcm there is high chance for increasing the hb without any complications and it is one of the safest medication to give intravenously

Actually, if you are diabetic, you should avoid any processed form of sugar. Be it sugar-free or relish. You can include jaggery in your diet for sweet effect.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Yes there is a video where it is shown that after eating fruits or after taking fructose blood glucose level does not go up. Fruits contain a sugar called fructose (sugar in fruits). It is different than glucose. So it will not reflect in increasing the blood glucose level. Unlike glucose which comes as an end product of all the carbohydrates that we eat - rice, wheat, jowar, bajari or millets, sweet corn etc. Cane sugar which is called sucrose contains one molecule of glucose and one fructose. Glucose increases blood glucose levels. Fructose has a different metabolic pathway. The matter is fairly complicated. This much is sufficient. Thanks.
