If low hemoglobin effects the high count of lymphocytes?

Not really: Anemia does not cause elevation of lymphocytes...However the anemia and lymphocytosis may be related as those two may be caused by a particular blood disorder. For instance in a case of chronic lymphocytic leuekemia. When this chronic leukemia becomes more progressive and the cancer burden is becoming higher , anemia can happen.Mhowever, in majority other cases those 2 are not related. D/w md.

Low hemoglobin: Anemia may be caused by blood loss perhaps through GI bleeding or decreased blood production in bone marrow. Fatigue and shortness of breath are most common dymptoms.
