If your child has low hemoglobin or low platelets, does she have a higher chance of sids?

3 doctors agree

In brief: By definition...

...Sids is a sudden unexplained infant death, occurring without a diagnosis of another condition that could account for it.
A child who has low hemoglobin or low platelets may have a condition that could lead to a sudden death, but then it would not be from sids.
