These seem okay: The question is, how do you feel? Labs like these often don't mean anything to a doctor without more information. A decline in white blood cells from 7 to 5 is considered physiologic. The other numbers are normal. At 29, an ESR of 34 is slightly elevated, non-specific & possibly do to a recent infection. If concerned or have symptoms, discuss with your doctor.
