Question Low White blood cell count normal in SLE patients?

I have SLE, was diagnosed in 1985. I am 35 yrs. old. I recently went to my 3 month check-up with the doc and had my routine blood work done. She called the next day to say she needs to send me to see a Hematologist because my wbc was 2.92. She said it's been up and down but I need to be evaluated. The strange thing was that I also tested negative for the Lupus(meaning I am not in flare) wbc is usually low in Lupus patients when they are in a flare. Should I be concerned that something else is going on or that it is low in the first place? My appointment with the Hematologist is not untill Sept. 21. Thanks for any response! I thought that the most helpful responses I could get are from others that suffer with the same illness as me!

Re: Low White blood cell count normal in SLE patients?

Is your count always that low? Has your doc ever done anything to bring that count up? Have they done a bone marrow test? Have you had a lot of problems with infections? Sorry for so many questions... but I do appreciate the response. If your count has been that low for that long with no concern, then I should not be too concerned. thnx suzieq
