    Question Iron Levels in Children

    I am new to this forum. I am desperately looking for info. I have a 2 year old son who was diagnosed with anemia about 6 months ago. His iron levels are checked every time we go to his pediatrician. His iron levels have been around 9 or 10.

    Friday we were told that his levels have dropped to 7. The doctor gave me until Monday to get his levels up or he would be hospitalized. We upped his iron supplements to 4 times a day. The doctor seems to be very worried but hasn't given us any answeres. She order blood tests and we should have the results back by tomorrow. But she keeps mentioning, "dangerous low levels of iron" and "Lukemia". I am freaked out to say the least. Can some one please tell me what level of iron is considered dangerously low?
