Concerned over Low White Blood Count
Jan 31, 2009
I just got my labs back and my WBC count dropped to 3.0 from 4.1 in September. My CD4 % has gone up by 4% on these last labs and my doctor told me not to worry. I have been feeling very tired and am currently taking Atripla, Lisinpril, Detrol and some herbal supplements for over all immune health (support) and candida. I am concerned about my labs since they did drop. I was worried about cancer by my doctor says not to worry since my CD4% is up. I have also been told during this same time that I have fibroid tumors on my uterus and ovaries, could this be making my WBC drop? I have not been sick and have very minor allergies but overall very healthy. I am just so tired of being tired. What is your opinion since I cannot get back in to see my doctor for a few weeks.
Thank you for your time.

In general, I agree with your doctor. Your current WBC is a tad low and out of the normal range. But I am not concerned with one result. Unlikely that fibroids would have anything to do with it.
