white blood cell count
 
Hello, I'm new to the forum. I have been recovered for 12 years after a seven year battle with anorexia (pretty severe). I've had one minor setback in that time which lasted only four months (in 2005). Recently I have had some blood tests that show a low white blood cell count (3.5) primarily low in monocytes (not platelets). Red blood cell count is normal. The last test I had done was in 2010, and that was at 3.8. I really don't know what my counts were the years before that. I was just wondering if anyone has experienced a persistent low white blood cell count even after a long period of recovery. Any information would be appreciated!

Hello allmychildren

Please speak with your primary care physician,as they can rule out most variables,in order to provide proper treatment for the abnormality....
