MY DAUGHTERS BLOOD TEST IS CONCERNING ME…ANY THOUGHTS?
Question by <3 he calls me his angel <3:
my daughters blood test is concerning me…any thoughts?
my daughter is three and a half mths old and she just went thru a spell for about two weeks where she wasnt interested in nursing at all and she wanted to sleep all day and i would have to wake her up to force her to eat. she is exclusively breastfed, she barely even has a bottle, and my milk supply is fantastic. my milk is very rich and filling and i know that becuz i also give it to my toddler, and it satisfies his hunger and hes healthy and growing. but shes a different story, at her two mth checkup she weighed 10lbs7oz, when i took her in at three mths she wieghed 10lbs6oz, her dr ordered a blood test and it showed low hemoglobin, so i googled it and some scary results came back such a lupus and porphyria. her dr told me to wake her up every two hrs to nurse her and bring her back in for a weight check in four days, so i have and im taking her in tuesday, but in the meantime id like to hear if anyone else has had this experience with a newborn? could it be simple anemia or something more serious? thanks.
Answer by tod m
get the a1c diabetes test. it’s very simple with the new hand held device.
Answer by Frank
There are several measures of hemoglobin in a complete blood count, and those measures will tell a clinician more about your condition. Without the specific reesults, I can’t tell you more specifically about your daughter, but I can tell you some general things about anemia.
Anemia is the name for insufficient red blood cells in the bloodstream. Different kinds of anemia happen for different reasons. The most likely causes for a child that age are iron deficiency and vitamin deficiency.
Your physician can test you more specifically (and the different measures of hemoglobin in the CBC will tell your physician more).
