Hemoglobin Levels in the Blood
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends anemia screening with a hemoglobin blood test for all infants at 12 months of age. Additional screening between the ages of 1 and 5 years is suggested for patients at risk. Risk factors for developing anemia include feeding problems, poor growth, and special healthcare needs. If you have specific concerns regarding anemia and your child, we recommend consultation with your child's health care provider.
