Polmed Primary Care & Walk-In Clinic Explains Why You May Need Iron Testing and Injections

Do you know how important iron is to your health? Polmed Primary Care & Walk-In Clinic is well-versed in iron testing and injections near Largo, and we are happy to explain and educate you on the importance of iron in your bloodstream.

Iron is an important element essential to the good health of your mind and body. It helps transport oxygen in smooth, unobstructed flows throughout your body, strengthening your nails, skin cells, and hair. Hemoglobin (blood) is comprised of mostly iron. It’s the component that helps you retain red blood cells to fight infections and combat sicknesses.

When you have an iron deficiency, general symptoms signal something wrong within your body. Some signs of iron deficiency, either mild or severe, include:

  • Pale or yellow/sickly skin.
  • Dizziness or severe vertigo worsens when you stand up or move quickly.
  • Tingling or pins and needles sensations in your arms and legs when you haven’t been sitting for long enough for your limbs to “fall asleep.”
  • Chronic cold hands or feet.
  • Constant headache or pressure.
  • Brittle or yellowed nails.
  • Fatigue, regardless of how much sleep you get, and muscle weakness.

At Polmed Primary Care & Walk-In Clinic, we use blood draws and examinations to diagnose iron deficiencies. We can suggest iron-rich foods or supplements to help you get more iron in your body, or you may need injections. In severe cases where a patient is anemic, blood transfusions could be required.

If Polmed Primary Care & Walk-In Clinic can’t help you with severe anemia, or if we suspect blood disorders, we can direct you to reliable hematologists. However, that’s rare. For routine iron testing and injections near Largo, you can call us at (727) 339-2054. Let us help you navigate iron deficiencies!

We Love Our Customers!

I’ve been going to CC, a Nurse Practitioner, Denise, and Sarah, at Dr. Kaszuba’s office for a long time now. I just want to say how I love this office. I found out about the office when I took an elderly patient here for her visit. They were so welcoming, I decided to switch to them for my doctor even though I live in Pinellas Park. I’ve always received the best care here.

The team at the front office is amazing I appreciate how nice Sarah has been with helping me with my appointments. The whole team does a great job and really care. Cassie Thomas

Great staff, smooth process. Booked through Zocdoc, staff called and confirmed appointment. Visit was friendly and informative. I was looking for a Primary, this office pretty much summed my decision. Thank you Polmed!

I felt very comfortable and welcomed. Doc was very knowledgeable.looking forward to having this team guide me back to health!

I wouldn’t change doctors for anything, Dr. Kaszuba is the best! I overlook the small stuff that is irrelevant ! He goes above & beyond !Not only is he a polite gentleman, but he has nailed every condition I’ve had, proving certain specialists incorrect! He’s old school knows the body in its entirety not just generally! I hope he gets rest, though! Also, his staff are awesome they love him! It’s all a breath of fresh air especially during these times. Thank you, all!

Very professional, i highly recommend

I have been a patient of Dr Kaszuba, Ben Landry, and "Ci Ci" for 15 years. I am a retired 33-year clinican myself. I credit Dr. Kaszuba for saving my life, as he recognized my symptoms at a very early stage, intervened, and took action immediately. His staff maintains a high standard of ethics in their areas of expertise especially Sarah. And have been very considerate of my health status, relaying information and communications.I travel 2 hours one- way for my appointments because of the high quality of care.
