Your son's serum iron, ferritin and transferrin are all at the lower end of normal.His haemoglobin is slightly below the normal level of 12.5 for his age and all the other red blood cell related tests show a very mild anemia. You are correct, it is better not to give the Ferrimed with milk. There does not appear to be any reason why his haemoglobin level should be below normal with all of this iron supplementation. Your son stools should be tested to make sure that he does not have any blood loss. It is odd that a boy of this age on a good diet and an iron supplement should still have a haemoglobin below normal.Your paediatrician needs to see him from time to time to make sure that he is responding to the iron supplement.
