I have a 7 year old and 2 years ago at his check up they did

I have a 7 year old and 2 years ago at his check up they did a finger prick and he had high cholestrol, but it was just about 184. Our previous doctor said little high for kids is normal. So anyway at his last check up in october I asked if he needed blood work and they said No. They just do blood work at certain ages unless there is an issue. I asked about the cholestrol check and they said they did not need to. Well last week they called me saying the doctor was wrong and he needs to do a fasting blood test for thr cholestrol to check since was 184 2 years ago. Now we are moving out of state and the inly availability was the morning we are leaving. My question to you is should I have him do the blood test that morning even though that will be very difficult for him and we will be traveling, should I ask them just to do the finger prick before to get an idea, or should I wait to do his full yearly check up in August when we get our new insurance where we are going. I don't want to miss it if important. However, I don't want him getting blood work here and then again there since I dont know if there will do regular blood work there and if here they are just checking for cholestrol or general as well. Plus I know he will go crazy getting blood work and it is moving day . What do you think is best? Thanks

My 9 year old son woke up with a nose bleed. His left

My 9 year old son woke up with a nose bleed. His left nostril to be exact. It did stop as of now. I looked in his nose and it the inside wall looks like a cut while the other side looks swollen and pink. I hope i am explaining it good. I think it is an allergy or from dryness but how can i be sure? It has been hot recently and we have the fans over our beds going all night. I have noticed he has had some nose dryness in the morning only but his nose hadn't bled until this morning.

My 4 year old has recently (last 2 weeks or so) become very

My 4 year old has recently (last 2 weeks or so) become very itchy. It's mostly on his legs but also on his torso and arms. He doesn't have any rash or visible skin condition whatsoever. He also has a long history of being very low energy. His weight gain seemed fine at his 4 year appointment. I'm concerned about some kind of underlying illness like diabetes - though he doesn't have the symptoms for that specifically. Any thoughts?JA: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?Customer: I've tried baths, lotion, Claritin but none of those things seem to make a difference. I have not noticed any swelling.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: He has a history of significant GI food intolerances. He gets stomach aches a lot.

4 month old girl puts all of her fingers on hand into her

4 month old girl puts all of her fingers on hand into her mouth and often prefers the fingers to breast milk. She seems to be consuming too much milk (180 mls or better per feeding). And she has recently learned to pull her feet up with her hands and insert foot into mouth, again, in preference to milk. Instinctually, I feel this is a form of doodling. If it is, any advice on transforming this seemingly beginning habit into a skill or something positive?
