Ds just turned one (yesteday ) and at our last visit to the Dr a few weeks ago, the Dr. gave me the paperwork to go get a blood test done for anemia, if I wanted too. He explained that he didn't think that ds was at risk, but that some of his collegues do it routinely as anemia can lead to learning disablities if left undetected and untreated. He left it up to me to do my research and decide, but I don't really know where to start! Can anybody help out here? I definately don't wanna subject ds to any unecessary pricks, but also don't want to risk anemia being undetected.
