Hello, well hopefully your doctor has set up a time to follow up with you on your results. Any reason why you had a blood draw? Any symptoms to speak of? You posted this on the hypertension/blood pressure forum, so am wondering if you feel that is somehow related? I think your red blood cell count may also be low.

You could have an issue like an infection or low iron even. The scary possibility is leukemia. Or perhaps you have an autoimmune disorder. Any symptoms to report?

When can you follow up with your doctor?
