Nothing: Reference ranges are set up so that several percent of healthy folks have values outside at either end.

What's wrong? Positive ANA, homogeneous. WBC level is 3.1 and monocytes are low (198). I am on omeprazole (40 mg 2x a day) and 120 mcg Armour thyroid.
Luekopenia: Low WBC can come from various couses. One is infection. Blood diseases. One is systemic lupus. With a positive ANA, one needs to know how strong and if there are other immunologic markers present. Sometimes a low level ANA can come with anti-thyroid antibodies. But you need to see a rheumatologist. The first thing I would do is repeat the tests to see if the abnormalities are persistant. ...Read more
