My doctor did blood work on me to check the normals.... Well all the stuff she was worried about came back normal. The problem she said was with my white blood count it was 0.6. So she decided to take more blood to see if it was a fluke. Well she called me this morning and told me the second set of blood tests came back with about the same results that my white blood count was still low.....

My question is how low is .6???????

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. I wish you would have shared the unit with it, as 0.6 alone is not commentable. If leukocyte count is low, that needs further work up to find out the possible cause for it, too early to comment with out proper work up.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
