Ellies growth/nutrition specialist called.
Shes anemic and low white counts all likely related to her blood diseases.
Her iron was 42(40 is considered low) vit d was 6.
They ordered xrays for rickets. Her calcium, parathyroid, phosphate were normal which is reassuring but they want to make sure so they are getting xrays and then want to start vit d supplement but monitor it because with such low levels adding to much vit d to quick can cause further problems.
Any of this sound right? Im planning on getting the one I've seen recommended on here, but I'm not planning on doing the multivitamin.
Oh and all this is because shes not eating enough solids at 10mo.
So the xrays were negative! Which is awesome! But not suprising :) even my mom is irritated with the seemingly scare tactics that theyre using. Carlsons vit d drops are en route. We have to make the decision on whether to let hematology pick up her case for the genetic blood disease and neutropenia. Not sure I want to continue dealing with "specialists" BS.
