What causes low blood count for a 2 yearold?

Anemia?

Blood_count
If by "low blood count" you mean anemia, the most common cause is iron deficiency anemia caused by inadequate iron intake in toddler's diet (too much milk and not enough red meat and green leafy vegetables). There are many other causes of anemia, though.

Dr. Michael Engel answered:

Is 5.0 a low blood count?

It's on the low side

Blood_count
but falls within the normative range for an adult. Total WBC count is not necessarily the most important or informative parameter to focus on. There are several different types of white blood cell, each with unique functionality, that in combination comprise the totality of our cellular immune response. Each cell type has a normal range. More important is the infection history of the patient.

Dr. Michael Engel answered:

What is the biggest cause of low blood count?

It depends upon....

Blood_count
the blood counts to which you are referring. If you mean anemia, the overwhelmingly most common reason for a low RBC count in the US is Fe deficiency, in part because of our typically Fe poor diet, and exacerbated by a monthly blood loss in women. Fe deficiency, however, is due tof an underlying primary problem to be discovered and corrected. For low WBC count, viral suppression is most common.
