low white blood cell count and low lymphocytes †

I had bloods done and my dr wrote on my printout don't worry that these say abnormal as the vary alot, and I can get them retested later if I wish...

Have to say I'm a little worried.

Anyone have any info on these:

Re: low white blood cell count and low lymphocytes †

Hi, how low were they? I have constistent low white blood cell counts and lymphocytes. I am checked and rechecked constantly because of this. I was told that autiammune can cause this such as lupus. Or also I am on medication such as an autioammune suppresent drug that lowers my resitant to infection. Are you on any known meds that also could do that? Also ask for a copy and then go on line and research what the averages is. I just did this myself with the copy of my blood work in hand. Sometimes doctors dont realize that as patients we get a little nervous by test results. I have become very aggressive in having my own copies and looking thing up.
Good luck
susie

Hi

You think it's a hypo thing?

My white cell count was 3.4 (4.0-10.0)
My lymphocyte was 0.80 (1.5-4.0)

Trying not to google as cancer usually appears!

My lymphocytes have measured low in the past, I was also told that it isn't unusual for it to fluctuate. My doctor also said that she sees it more in people who don't eat a ton of protein. My last tests it was back in normal range.

Re: low white blood cell count and low lymphocytes †

I know it is scarey when you research web sites for test results. I do not know if hypothryod can cause a low white blood cell count, I tried to look it up for you but no clear cut answers. But then again if your hypo is Hashimotos that is an autioammune thing so maybe.
Good luck and sorry I could not help you more.

Thanks.. It's just so worrying to me.

I also have low B12 and folate...

Just hope it's nothing bad I can't deal with anything else!!!

Re: low white blood cell count and low lymphocytes †

Lele,

I've had "off" white cell counts, too, in the past year. My WBC has been low, my lymphocytes HIGH, and my neutrophils low. I'll get it rechecked and they're all normal, then next time "off" again. It scared me because my dad died 18 years ago of leukemia (at age 76- I'm 56).

I have decided it is from having Hashimotos. I think I remember reading autoimmune disease can affect your white blood cell counts. So I've quit worrying about it.

Re: low white blood cell count and low lymphocytes †

Hypothyroidism can wreak havoc with blood counts.

That's why people with untreated/improperly treated hypothyroidism are more prone to infections.

Same deal with anemia.
