Welcome to HCM ,
I must tell you that her hb% is alarmingly low & suggests of anemia a major causing shortness of breath , anorexia(loss of appetite ) & other symptoms mimicking Bronchitis ,
Thus , you must consult a pediatrician for knowing exact cause of HB% Lowering , many a times it is easier to diagnose ,with minor infestation of worm in gut or simple jaundice ,
So ,i must advise you to consult a gastroenterology department along with pediatrics expert for thorough investigations .
