Hello. The expert that you requested has not responded.

Yes. Since the WBC has remained stable at this level for years, it is correct that you can be reassured that it is working fine. This is not a level of WBC that is associated with a significant increased risk of infection, and you certainly have not experienced any problems that would indicate that it is have any effect on you.

If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.

Hi dr David just got this a question
Ok so my WBC is 3.1 to 6 over 4 years I retell get ill if I do I get over it very fast.
I notice the last time a year or so ago I had a cold my neutrophils went up to 3.9 then they dropped back to 2 my doc said that is fantastic and shows how well it's working.
So is it my genetics ? And if I g over stuff quicker than most does the number mean my WBC s are larger or they or fitter ???
Expert:  Dr. David replied 10 months ago.

everybody's immune system is different

and it is normal for your WBC counts to vary and go up and down

that is why the normal range for WBC counts is between 4 to 10

your levels of 3.1 to 6 is normal for you.

so you don't have to worry.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Ohhh so you are saying that some people have say 2.8 to 5 and they are healthy and others 9 -15 and they too are healthy.
It's simply number. ???
So 3.1 to 6 is fine to be fit. ?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 10 months ago.

yes, your levels are fine for you.

your immune system is normal.

you are healthy.

Thanks was just wondering how 3 can do the same job as a 8 in someone else , but it can its just a number ? Will pay now thanks.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 10 months ago.

it is just a number

your immune system is more than just a number.

you are healthy and that is what is important.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
To fiinish
The differential tells you that ? And the other immune markers
Heamoglobin , red cells ???
Expert:  Dr. David replied 10 months ago.

you are healthy because your doctor tells you that

the differential tells us of the different types of WBC cells in your system

but they all work for you to keep you healthy.

hemoglobin levels tell you about your red blood cells

they all come from your bone marrow which is working fine

you don't have to worry.
