To the Editor,

We thank Gupta et al for their interest in our study. (1) First of all in our study of 205 patients we found 7.3% having hypersensitivity in con­trast to the literature.(2) Secondly, the aim of the study was to illustrate the safety of two dif­ferent IV Iron preparations and not to examine the cause of failure to respond to IV Iron and Erythropoietin. Thirdly, all our patients were treated with oral iron therapy before using iron sucrose injections. Fourthly, we agree that mea­surement of TSAT, red cell hemoglobin con­tent and parathyroid hormone levels would have been done, however we as a routine pro­tocol replace iron via parenteral route and fur­ther studying the iron stores is done if needed. Presentation of data about parathyroid hor­mone levels and even iron stores was not the aim of the study since we conducted the com­parison for documentation of the safety of pa­ranteral iron sucrose.
