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.

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?

9 RBC , 39000 platlets, low WBC 6 transfusions and not raising my blood levels, my body won't make or take blood. I am afraid i won't go home, help?
Don't give up. EVER: There's one thing i know.. That is... I can't predict the future. I care for critically ill patients every day. There are patients that I am sure will die... Then they get better. Then there are patients that i think i will "cure". But a higher power intervenes. Ultimately, I have discovered that life is a dichotomy. Life is very strong...
