IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy delivers nutrients, medications, or fluids directly into your bloodstream. At Frontier Adult Day Care, IV therapy is the fastest and most efficient way to get the substances you need to improve your health.

Your bloodstream provides a direct and rapid pathway to cells everywhere in your body. IV therapy is also the only way to give you a precise dose. When nutrients and medications go through your stomach and small intestine, only a portion of the dose makes it into your bloodstream.

Bypassing your stomach is especially important for older adults because changes in their gastrointestinal tract interfere with the ability to absorb some nutrients. For example, many adults can’t absorb vitamin B12 properly, leading to anemia and B12 deficiencies that cause permanent nerve damage.

What are the benefits of IV therapy?

IV therapy may achieve many benefits, depending on the components you receive. Your infusion may do any of the following:

  • Promote healing
  • Ease pain
  • Prevent illness
  • Increase energy
  • Reduce stress
  • Fight aging
  • Treat nutrient deficiencies
  • Strengthen your immune system
  • Treat chronic fatigue
  • Support weight loss
  • Treat dehydration

Many people need IV therapy to treat dehydration. As you get older, your body has less total water, and your sense of thirst diminishes. As a result, dehydration is a common problem in people older than 65.

Dehydration can lead to serious complications and is a common cause of hospitalizations in the elderly. IV therapy at Frontier Adult Day Care safely and effectively treats the problem.

What type of IV therapy might I need?

Before recommending IV therapy, your Frontier Adult Day Care provider carefully evaluates your medical history and current health. Then, they choose from many possible IV mixtures, ensuring your IV infusion meets your unique needs.

For example, they may recommend the Myers’ cocktail, which supports your overall health with a blend of vitamin C, B vitamins, and minerals like magnesium, potassium, zinc, and selenium.

Your IV therapy may contain a high dose of vitamin C, powerful antioxidants, or many possible combinations of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids carefully chosen to target a certain problem or achieve a specific result.
