Is It Permissible In The Near Future Toddlers To Check Blood Repeatedly?
Good night … my son is 19 months a week and then blood checks … can I get a blood test next week or bring back the lab results. The km to see the current development is because the problem is still hot … thank you …
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your concern. A hot body or fever, both in children and in adults, can mean many things. There are various types of bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites that can cause a person to have a fever. Especially with the immunity of the body that is not perfect, babies can be attacked by diseases that generally do not affect adults.
In determining which of these bacteria or viruses are attacking your child, it is sometimes necessary to have a supporting examination. There are various kinds of investigations, such as urine tests, routine blood tests, peripheral blood tests, typhus tests and many more, depending on the tendency of the disease experienced by your child. Regarding your question, there is actually no problem with repeated blood checks, because there is not a lot of blood drawn, and the body is not affected if a small amount of blood is taken, even if it is done every day. The question is whether it is necessary or not.
Not all diseases can be identified with a blood test, and even though having a blood test repeatedly doesn't have a bad effect, doing it isn't always important. If your child's condition turns out to be caused by something else that isn't very visible through a blood test, the recommendation might not be to do a blood test, but rather a urine test, for example in the case of urinary tract infections.
So our advice is that it's important that you regularly check your child with a pediatrician. If the medicine has run out and the complaints have not improved, return to your pediatrician beforehand for evaluation. Whether your child will have another blood test or not, let your child's doctor determine. Your job as a parent is only to supervise your child if there are alarming symptoms such as high fever, seizures, the child looks weak and so on and then immediately take him to the doctor, help him regularly take the medicine given by the doctor, and maintain his health by keeping him away from cigarette smoke, give him the necessary nutrition and fluids as well as prevent him from getting sick. So, hopefully answering your question.
