Ferritin (iron) center in Basel for anemia?

Hello,

Recently I met someone whoís ex-girlfriend went to a renowned center for anemia in the Basel area. Apparently they administer iron infusions every day over a week in small amounts rather than all at once in one sitting as per standard practice. It is supposed to be a better treatment and easier for the body to accept, which I could definitely use as my current one isnít working.

He did not know the name and my google search has not given any results - anyone know this place?

Thanks!!

Get tested for beta thalassemia minor beforehand.
Often over-looked.

Not a big medical factor, but can have serious consequences in the handling of iron supplements (from experience)

I was lucky enough to have a good GP at the time.

Get them to to test for it - while an apparently harmless condition, additional iron can be very counter- productive.
