Although doctors would say that, I think that it might be more meaningful in the context of what the other symptoms are. How are your platelets? Are they also on the low side of normal?
Have you been around a lot of oil at some time in the past (IT can cause aplastic anemia which is lower red, white and platelet counts)
For decades doctors think hemolysis will show up in the blood counts. But not so for compensating hemolytic anemia. That's not what you are talking about, but blood is so important, that you might want to get a second opinion.
Any endocrine disruption? What kind of work do you do?
