  • I am severely anemic, but fortunately my kids are not. Did they find out why he/she's anemic?

  • Thank you all!
    He has a G6PD DEFIENCY which can cause severe anemia! Some kids don't have symptoms but appearantly he is.

  • Be sure to serve a vitamin C source with iron-rich foods; the C helps with the absorption of the iron.
