I'm a 46 yr old male. I was diagnosed with a B12 deficiency last November and put on B12 injections. I received weekly injections for a month and have since been getting monthly injections. When I started, my wbc was 3.3, my rdw 15.4, my platelet count 127, my absolute lymphocytes 380. I just had blood work from my regular physician (not the hematologist) and my counts are as follows: wbc 2.6, rdw 15.6, platelets 130, absolute lymphs 0.4 (different lab). Obviously, my B12 injections aren't solving the problem. I'm due to see my hematologist in early Sept. What could be the possible causes of my lower white count? What does this point to?
