last 09/01/20 was the first transfution of my 21 month baby. It was terrible  for us. Another transfution have to get today.
My baby's hb was found 7.7 dl so the doctor said she has to got transfusion unless her hb level reach 12dl.
Dear andy please advise us if hb level is maintain within 7.7dl then any problem arises her growth and brain development?Her platelets was decreased at 70000. Why  it is decrease?

For best growth and development, the Hb should be kept above 10. This helps to avoid many problems that can develop over time. It will take a few transfusions before the Hb reaches that level. It can't be done in one transfusion. The blood should only be red blood cells and should be tested for antibodies, so it does not cause a reaction in the child.
Look for a liquid folate supplement that can be given to a young child. This may help raise the platelets. Papaya can also help to raise platelets.


All we are saying is give thals a chance.
