Hi Dr love Looking back at these levels I'm a bit relieved

Customer Question

Hi Dr love
Looking back at these levels I'm a bit relieved the wbc does go up and down for example in October 2013 it was 3.5. In February 2014 it was 6.0 in July 2014 4.0 in September 3.69 and in October 2014. 3.5.
That is reassuring as it would go up and down like that over a long time it would keep going down and stay very low. ?? Am I understanding that right if so I get it at last !!

Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

it is normal for your WBC counts to go up and down like this.

Dr. David :

there are no signs that it will go down very low or keep going down at this point.

Customer : Thanks Dr David.
Customer : Even I can see it looks ok if serious would go very low and stay low I'm guessing ?
Dr. David :

right.

Customer : It is also worth noting the lab normal range is 3.0 to 10. For a reason I'm assuming
Dr. David :

your levels are not worrisome.

Dr. David :

yes, that is fine.

Dr. David :

different labs can have slightly different "normal" ranges.

Customer : I take omeprazol and have done for many years 1 a day for nervous acidity.

Customer : my repeat test and sign off for the liver is in a week can I post you the results. ?
Dr. David :

Customer : Then I only need testing every six months as my liver enzymes have been perfect now for 6 months !
Customer : Alt 20 to 29 ast 21 to 24 gamma gt 10. Billibubin 9.
Customer : The 42 pound weight loss and excercise have sorted it as you said it would
Customer : Would the liver reversal effect the wbc in any way ?
Dr. David :

no.

Customer : So weight loss didn't effect it
Customer : No not over 3 years. Lol
Customer : Hopefully now I'm fit the fat has gone. !
Dr. David :

that is good.

Dr. David :

I am glad you are exercising.

Dr. David :

Dr. David :

Customer : Had a week off running molar extraction. Healed in 5 days !!!! So something in the wbc is working !
