Hi there.
Thank you for your question.

Low lymphocytes can, at times, happen because of an infection.

It does not necessarily mean that your immune system is weak.

I would appreciate it if you could attach the blood report here for me to have a look at myself.

Let me know if you have more questions.

Rate me when you are done asking.
Kindest regards
