Anemia in a child

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

When my son first started having really severe symptoms, about July- his bloodwork showed a low hemoglobin of 9. In Early Sept. he was tested again and it dropped to 7! Now he was retested last week and it went up to 11.

The dr. has no explanation for this, as he has tested negative for all his celiac tests.. but I put him on a gluten-free diet in mid Sept. Is it possible the change in diet improved his anemia in that short a time? He has not been on any iron supplements except through his tube feeding formula, nothing has changed in that period of time except for taking out the gluten.

Wow a 7 is so low.  I could barely function when I was that anemic.  It took me about 3 or 4 months to hit my normal level hemoglobin level (I also have Thalassemmia another anemia).  I hear that kids tend to heal fast, but that is very fast!  He must now be able to absorb the iron in his formula.  I glad things are improving for him!
