Does anyone or has anyone had thier children's blood tested to determine health/deficiencies? If so, what did you look for and did you have the Dr. perform any other tests?

My daughter has had several blood tests, mainly routine. When we lived in NYC, she was tested to see if she had lead in her blood. Apparently that is common there. She was found to have anemia at one point. She was also given tests for allergies. Now that we know she has a dairy allery and had been eating dairy, that would explain the anemia.
She doesn't just go in for tests willy nilly. She does go in when she needs some sort of test or checkup for school or if she is sick and the Dr. thinks she needs some sort of testing. When she gets older she will need a thyroid and blood sugar tests. Thyroid problems and diabetes run on both sides of the family.

I don't have my children's blood tested mostly because they are not going to fall into the normal categories. The norms on blood testing are based on societies averages. We all know that society is not healthy , so why would I want my child to fall into what is normal for them?
I do biological terrain testing on my children which tests for ph, redox and resistivity. With those numbers, I can tell if they have mineral deficiencies or heavy metal toxicity as well as virus, bacteria or other system stresses. You should be able to find a practitioner in your area that does similar testing. Live blood cell is another good way to see what is going on.

You can get yearly physicals and get a CBC done.
