Have Pediatric Questions? Ask a Pediatrician.
Her last blood test was 2 weeks ago as well as her occult fecal blood. She has not had and ekg or an echo done. Her food intake is very good. She eats all the time. She eats meat. Loves it. It is a main food for her. We eat hormone free, grass fed beef, chicken and turkey. Also a lot of fish. Her stool has only been tested for blood. Otherwise it is normal. She has one to two bowel movements a day. No diarreah or constipation. Her urine has not been tested.
Thank you for your answer. It is exactly what my Doctor is going to do in the next few weeks. I am writing down what her food intake is and he is going to show it to the dietician and he is going to arrange a stress test and have her to a lung test. It is hard to see her so tired and sickly. What i really want to know is if she might have a blood disorder and if we should take her to see a hemotologist at Children"s hospital. My GP thinks there is something else going on. I am getting two conflicting answers. GP seems to be very concerned but the Pediatrician is going slowly. We do not no what to do.
