Pediatrician 's  Response

Thank you for your query.

Except for a slightly low hemoglobin (mild anemia), the lab results of your child are normal for his age. It would be good to know his current weight and height, as well as development status. Some kids take a little longer to grow, without it being a signal of any diseases. But to know that a pediatrician should follow his growth and development.

Have a nice day and good luck.
