Hi, Thanks for your time. During a normal blood test, my WBC was found to be 2.1. Another test after 3 months showed the WBC to be 1.9. The docter mentioned that HIV could be one of the several causes, and i did a test and i am waiting for the results. Question1 : what are the causes for low WBC? Question2: Is HIV infection a likely cause for low WBC? Other CBC results were normal
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Many dieseases, including several kinds of infections can result in a low WBC. It is a very nonspecific finding.
