Low white blood cell count

I have recently had blood work done which indicated I have a low white blood count. The value was Leukocytes 3.0, Neutrophil 1.5, lymphocyte 1.1, and monocyte 0.1. I have 2 questions my first being are these numbers considered very low or just slightly low. My second question is can prolonged stress lower your counts as I have been under alot of stress this past year. I appreciate any and all info anyone can provide.

Hi!
Actually your total leukocyte count is marginally low while the other counts are all within normal limit. All counts are hovering near the lower normal limit and this could be the normal range for you. Yes, prolonged stress can both raise or lower the count. So, take up some activity to de-stress your self such as yoga, walking, jogging, cycling etc. Eat healthy and drink plenty of fluids. Repeat the count after tow-three months. If you have any symptoms then your doctor may clinically correlate your count accordingly. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
