What are reasons why my white blood cells are low?

Hard to say! Is this a new problem? Are you sick? On any new meds or supplements? Lots of things can cause a low white blood cell count. Any test, whether normal or not, has to be interpreted in light of the symptoms you are having. If this was found on a routine blood test and you feel fine, it may be nothing, and should be repeated later to see if it is still low. Talk to your doc on what followup to do.
