My 5 year old son just had a blood test and his iron level was 8. In january it was 14. He is severely anemic right now and is dizzy, tired and has horrible color. He has been really sick for 2 months, so I don't know whether being sick effected his appetite and he got anemic or what, he also takes Nexium which I am reading can cause a B12 deficiency. I really don't know how to get him better right now. My ped is having me try to get him better with food over the next week and if it doesn't get better is sending us to a hematologist. Any advice is appreciated. I don't understand how this happened so quickly, or is that not fast? I am very concerned about my son and didn't realize what was going on with him. She did send us for an ultrasound to make sure he wasn't bleeding from anywhere.
