What should I do about my sleepy almost 7 year old?

My daughter is almost 7, all she wants to do is sleep. Took her to the doctor and all results came back normal. She is asleep by 7-715 doesn't get up in the middle of the night and wakes up around 7. She wakes up most mornings asking to take a nap. She will nap almost everyday for about 2-3 hours depending on if she has school or not. If she doesn't nap she is so cranky and will have temper tantrums that can last hours. Anyone have any advice or suggestions?

Some kids need a lot more sleep than others, but at 7, I don't think she should feel the need to nap. I would take her to another doctor.
