Low blood white cells
« on: March 04, 2020, 12:42:04 am »
Hello everyone, yesterday I did some laboratories with my gastroenterologist ... everything is in correct values ​​unlike white blood cells 2700 it is called leukopenia.  I took medication a year ago, my last CD4 was 370 and undetectable viral load.  Has anyone had this problem?  I'm worried about this. :(  :'(

Hello, if all values in your lab work were normal, I suggest to simply repeat the CBC and differential in a month. Most likely this was a fluctuation which is clinically irrelevant. Best Matt

Hi ZeldaDC 
     I had the same thing a couple of years ago. Doc said not worry about it, the counts would come back in time. It took about 6 months for mine to come back up to my normal. I never got sick or had any problems the whole time. My CD4 was at 245 at the time.I would take Matths advice and repeat the test at your next visit.
 Wishing you all the best Phoenix
A positive attitude may not solve all your problems but it will annoy enough people to make it worthwhile.                              The point of the journey is not to arrive.
