Low white count

Does anyone know about bone marrow suppression? I have a question. Is that why the white count is always around 2.1 or is it the body attacking the white cells and destroying them.

Does bone marrow suppression involve a white cells?

Re: Low white count

Hi CindyLou,
Bone marrow suppression causes a deficiency of blood cells. It can involve the white cells in addition to the red cells and platelets. Bone marrow suppression often times causes anemia, neutropenia, a decrease in platelet counts or all three. I'm not sure as to how you would go about figuring out what's causing the neutropenia as they both can cause it. Maybe someone else will know a little more about it then I do I hope this helped, have a good day!

Re: Low white count

How do you tell if it's the bone marrow being suppressed or your body attacking the white cells?
