Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Anemia basically has various causes. The following are the causes of anemia that you can read. In children, anemia is most often the case of iron deficiency anemia, but still must be confirmed in advance by laboratory tests causing anemia in your child.
Hemoglobin in red blood cells has the function to bind and carry oxygen to all body tissues. The existence of anemia or low hemoglobin will reduce the ability of red blood cells to carry this oxygen, while oxygen is one of the important substances needed to support the life of the body's cells (including growth). Therefore the condition of anemia in children can affect many things, such as causing disruption of growth and development of children and interfere with the child's brain development as well. Severe anemia is very dangerous because it can also disrupt the function of organs.
You should take your child back to the pediatrician to get further examination and treatment. Even if it is true that your child is suffering from iron deficiency anemia, it should also be seen how severe your child's anemia is, because if anemia is severe enough, giving foods high in iron alone is often not enough to cure anemia.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
