Resolved Question:

My bloods just came back and I have a wbc of 3.9. I was wondering what this might mean, as the receptionist said this was a little low. I was hoping for some information whilst I await the doctors appointment. Many thanks

This is Dr. David

WBC count of 3.9 is ok

it is normal for WBC counts to go up and down as your immune system needs them

your counts will come back up when your immune system needs them

Is it worth going to see the doctor or should I just have more bloods taken in a month or so to check again? Would low wbc make you tired?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 years ago.
you can have your CBC repeated in a month or so to check it.

that will be fine

a WBC count of 3.9 would not cause you to be tired

you need other tests and examination so find out why you are tired.
