Customer Question

Have been having blood test for the last few months, after going to the doctors feeling run down and loosing weight, my white blood count was low the lowest being 2.6 after being tested again it went up to 3.1 I was then told to go back and be tested after 3 months, which I did this week and was told it had gone back up to 3.4 but my neutrophils had gone down by 1. Should I be worried as I was told to go back in 2 months to be re tested

HelloNoI would not be worried.We see this all the time.In the absence of other abnormalities on the CBC, it is meaningless.It is fine to monitor it, but you probably don't even need to do that.
