Mild pancytopenia: All your blood cells are on the lower side, including white blood cells at 3.0, Red blood cells expressed by hematocrit (Hct) at 29.8 and platelets at 101k. While a bone marrow process can cause above changes, many times other conditions, such as thyroid, autoimmune or liver conditions, recent viral infections or current drugs are involved and a hematologist should be able to help at this point.
