Low wbc (3.0) but normal levels of RBC and hemoglobin. Have not been sick. Actually never get sick. Feel great.worried. What could be wrong. STRESSED!

Likely nothing: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your WBC may be your normal. There is no point in treating laboratory values. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

FERRITIN level was only 12, all other parts of iron profile in range, hgb 13.4, wbc 4.5 rbc 4.45 Why is ferritin level low and wbc low end of range?

Ferritin: Ferritin reflects the iron levels "in the bank" so to speak, or storage iron, not what is "in your wallet" or in circulation. It means there is iron deficiency, but you may be absorbing enough to keep hgb/rbc going. WBC varies by individual and various other factors & is unrelated to iron. ...Read more

My test results show low WBC, HGB, and HCT with normal RBC and a monocyte level of 13%. What does this indicate?

How low?: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that.
