White cells and neutrophils

What does a doctor do to raise your neutrophils when they're dangerously low?

Re: White cells and neutrophils

That depends on the reason for the low neutrophils count. If they are extremely depleted, a specialist would carry out tests to determine the reason. In the simplest case, it could just be a vitamin deficiency and a course of treatment would be given to bring things back into balance. In more serious illnesses, chemotherapy or a bone marrow transplant might be needed.
