Dear Patient,

I'm so sorry to hear that. It's alright to have low iron levels but you must consult your paediatrician and follow their advice. Also, if there are any more tests and they comes okay then you just need to give him a high iron diet once you wean him. Some kids may have low iron levels on and off.

For further consultation, you can choose from our list of best Pediatricians in Lahore and seek in-person advice.
