“Infusion” or “infusion therapy” is a service involving the administration of medications directly into the vein. It is additionally called intravenous or IV therapy. Infusion, intravenous, or injectable ways of medication administration are frequently utilized when pill/oral medications are insufficient, unavailable, or inappropriate. A number of the latest medications are biologic (made or derived from living cells) and cannot be consumed via the mouth, like a pill, because they will not remain effective once exposed to the digestive tract. Biologic medications are frequently prescribed to address inflammatory bowel diseases, which include Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis among other autoimmune disorders. If you or a loved one are seeking infusion therapy in Houston, TX, request a consultation at a Gastroenterology Consultants location in your community.
