How is iron poisoning diagnosed?

ANSWER

The diagnosis of iron poisoning is usually made by observing your child. A normal physical exam and no symptoms for 6 hours tells the doctor that the child has experienced either little poisoning or did not eat any iron-containing substances. The doctor may draw blood from your child and do an X-ray, too.
