My 3 years old daughter is diabetic since 1.5 years of age and she is also anemic. Sugar is not much a concern. Recently, we got her blood test done and her hemoglobin is 10 and serum ferritin is 1.71. I have given her Iron supplement for over eight months now. Since then, this is her third blood test. Hemoglobin and ferritin levels just seem to drop each time. Her current medications are Lantus 10 units in the morning, Novorapid on a sliding scale between 1.5 and 2.5 units and Fermax one fourth of a teaspoon every night.
