IV Therapy has been a part of medicine for a century. The use of IV Nutrient Therapy started in the 1940s and was promoted by Dr. Klenner and others, and then was expanded on by early pioneers including Dr. Myers and Cathcart, then Wright and Gaby and many others.

Why should we promote IV Nutrition Therapy

Most patients receive IV therapy in the hospital setting and in the ER.

There is a big need in the chronically ill population for IV therapies to help with

  • Pain relief
  • cellular nutrition,
  • recovery,
  • disease treatment and
  • many other targets.

In modern stressful life there are individuals who need help to maintain their

  • nutritional balance
  • Cosmetic temporary enhancements
  • Recovery from hangover
  • General body weakness

What has been traditionally the purpose of IV Therapy in Modern Medicine ?

  • To provide parenteral nutrition
  • To provide avenue for dialysis/apheresis
  • To transfuse blood products
  • To provide avenue for hemodynamic monitoring
  • To provide avenue for diagnostic testing
  • To administer fluids and medications with the ability to rapidly/accurately change blood concentration levels by either continuous, intermittent or IV push method.

Clinical Thinking: IV Therapy in Chronic Illness

The purpose of an IV approach to nutritional therapies is

Efficacy & Safety of IV Nutritional Therapies

What are the most common nutrient IV additives and their indications?

  • Vitamins
  • Minerals
  • Antioxidant boosters
  • Custom rehydration

Vitamins and Minerals

Anti-Oxidants


How our Clinical experts determine the best combination of IV Therapy ingredients for you ?

  • What does the client or patient need?

  • What nutrients or protocols may help?

  • What schedule might work best?

  • What testing is appropriate for workup and follow-up?

Same as what what would be provided in the course of good medical management, a client or patient getting (or needing) IV therapy requires a proper clinical work-up because of the possibility of electrolyte shifts and other co-morbidities. Hence, our team at IV Therapy UAE ensures a review by a licensed doctor on fitness to receive IV Therapy sessions.

What Pre-Infusion Questions and investigations can I expect ?

  • Your supervising doctor will review an intake form with your clinical history to accept you as client/patient
  • You will be given instructions to prepare yourself for the IV Therapy Session.
  • After explaining to you the IV Therapy Benefits and Risks, a informed consent is taken
  • Minimum screening labs required include Complete Blood Count, Serum Electrolyte and  G6PD test. Any other labs required will be based on patient clinical assessment.

In which Clinical conditions IV Therapy sessions are not given ?

G6PD Deficiency or Favism Hypokalemia
Chronic Renal Insufficiency On Digoxin / with Arrhythmia
Congestive Heart Failure On Potassium depleting drugs
Atrial Fibrillation On Diuretics, Beta-agonists or Glucocorticoids
Low blood pressure (lower than 90/60) Allergies to vitamins and minerals
If patient is pregnant General edema / ankle swelling

How many IV Therapy sessions are required ?

After taking history and assessment  your doctor will provide you information regarding time required and number of treatments until reassessment.

  • Aside from acute situations (like hangover treatment), most chronic conditions require multiple treatments before assessment.
  • On average, the required sessions are 1-2 IVs a week for 4 weeks and 1 a week for 8 weeks, then reassessment.

Things To Do Before Your Vitamin and Mineral IV Drip Appointment

Whether it’s your first or regular vitamin and mineral IV drip, there are a few things to do before the appointment. Follow this checklist to make sure your drip runs smoothly:

  1. Get as hydrated as possible

Isn’t a vitamin IV drip supposed to rehydrate you? Absolutely! But the more dehydrated you are, the smaller your veins will be (which hide when we’re low on fluids). We want to make sure your veins are as visible and palpable as possible to make the best out of your IV therapy session. With that, drink, drink and drink water before your appointment begins!

  1. Don’t remain hungry

Eat something, anything! It’s important to keep your blood sugar levels up. Some of the vitamins and minerals in your IV drip could lower your blood sugar and blood pressure. So if you are at your appointment with an empty stomach, your vitamin drip could cause light-headedness afterwards.

  1. Get moving

After a heart-pumping workout, do your arms appear more “vascular” than usual? Here’s why: as we increase our bodily movement, we generate heat; the more heat we generate, the more our vessels dilate. Moving around before your vitamin drip appointment helps ensure a successful IV treatment.

  1. Try to avoid antihistamines and decongestants

If you can, refrain from antihistamines and decongestants before your IV. Indeed, these meds relieve allergy symptoms and alleviate headaches, but they have a constricting effect on your blood vessels. This can cause you to experience a challenging IV treatment. But if you must take these over-the-counter meds, please do these things before your appointment: get hydrated, eat a snack and do a quick jog around the block.

  1. Relax and breathe

Once you’re seated in a lounge chair and waiting to be hooked up, take a few minutes to relax. Deep breathing will help release tension and prepare your body for your treatment. Try five deep belly breaths like this:

  • Place one hand over your chest and one over your belly.
  • Watch your belly hand expand outward with each breath.
  • If your belly hand isn’t expanding outward and your chest hand is rising instead, focus on your belly expanding outward as you breathe in.
  1. Don’t worry — there’s nothing to worry about!

Most patients report very little pain. When the small needle is withdrawn, a soft catheter stays in place for the rest of the treatment. Depending on the infusion, you may get an energy boost or a relaxing effect. At the IV Therapy Sessions, often patients report a sense of calmness during the IV treatment and a good night’s sleep in the evening.

Take note: The length of treatment depends on the IV formula being administered. Most of the formulas (including Energy IV) take 30-45 minutes.
