What is weak? The term "immune system" is very broad and begins with an intact integument (skin & soft tissues). You have different types of wbcs, different types of lymphocytes and antibodies, and so on and so on. Be specific about what you think is 'weak', but suspect the 6 month check up will be fine and you need not be seen prior to that unless something unusual occurs. Good luck. Read more...

Why WBC went from 5.9, 5.7, 5.1 lymphs 1.5, 1.4 and1.0 neutrs steady at 3.7 why did WBC and lymphs go so low read could be weak immune system or cancer?

No meaning by itself. Lab results are just numbers. In real life, numbers change from day to day (that is how nature is). The above numbers are close enough to one another, such that they don't mean anything has changed. It would be very strange and unnatural to get 3 identical results on 3 separate blood tests. So, the numbers don't mean anything without the whole picture... which means asking the doctor for help. Read more...

What could cause both canker sores and a yeast infection? Could this be from a weak immune system?

Yes. Fungal ("yeast") infections are often secondary to other issues like a weakened immune system, as can be canker or other mouth sores. However, both can also be secondary to taking antibiotics, where the change to the normal bacterial components of your mouth allows fungi to thrive, resulting in both mouth sores and fungal infection. See a dentist and/or physician for exam and testing. Read more...
