White cells and neutrophils

What does a doc give you to raise the neutrophil level when it's dangerously low?

Re: White cells and neutrophils

Psotie, From what I've read about low neutrophils in lupus books, I *think* the underlying cause must be determined & treated. However, in addition to lupus, I think there's a long list of OTHER possible causes.

How low is yours? There's a cut-off, below which it's deemed "neutropenia"; infection-fighting is considered dangerously compromised. BUT, if you'd hit that, your doctors would be all over it---presumably?

And what have your doctors said?

Hang in there! Best wishes, Vee

Re: White cells and neutrophils

I only have 0.05 neutrophils. I don't have anything to fight off any infections. I can't be around people that are sick.
