When I did a blood work on 2009 everything came back good except low WBC 3.2. I repeated this test several times and I got almost same result 2.9 - 3.7 and last one was 3.1. I checked all my medical history since I born, I saw all blood tests was 4.1- 2.9 average 3.5 for WBC. Also, my father (46 years old) has same results 3.5-3.7 WBC for the last 3 years ago. I do not have any sign of sickness or weakness. My family doctor referred me to Hematology.
Do you think having this WBC range is fine for some people? (I'm from middle east, and I heard people from middle east could have this range normally).
Tests I done ( I repeated below tests several times):
WBC (Low) 3.1 range 4-11
Absolute Neutrophil (low) 1.5 range 1.6-9.3
Protein Total (High) 8.4 range 6-8
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Get a differential WBC count done. Low WBC with high eosinophils go more in favor of parasitic infections. Get your stool tested, if this is the case. The other possibilities are viral infection, allergy, lupus, hyperthyroid states, hypersplenism, and rheumatoid arthritis. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Do discuss this with the hematologist you have been referred to.
Thanks for your replay,
My test says for absolute eosinophil 0.0 range 0.0-0.7
Also, I did several test for autoimmune disease, and came back negative.
You mentioned allergy, many doctors including oral surgen told me I have allergy, when did facial x-ray. However, I denied the treatment because I used to it and it's not affect me. Do you think it could be the case that cause low white cell??
