Your child's doctor may suspect megaloblastic anemia after taking a complete medical history and physical examination of your child. In addition, several blood tests can be performed to confirm the diagnosis.

If the megaloblastic anemia is thought to be caused by a problem in the digestive tract, a barium study of the digestive system may be performed.
