Don't do it : Those blood count changes are most likely due to your medications. They not require treatment. Your medications can cause bone marrow suppression which will cause these blood counts to decrease. The medications are normally adjusted based on these counts and the function of the transplanted organ they are protecting. Do not try to adjust these meds or blood counts without your docs directions.
