For some reason I was given a copy of some old blood test results by a previous GP and never really paid any attention to them.
There are 3 that are below the range namely White Blood Cells (WBCs), Neutrophil count and Lymphocyte count.
Low Lymphocyte count can be attributed to many things including possible autoimmune condition. The others indicate anything from leukaemia to a virus.
Should a GP have taken notice and used these in conjunction with symptoms to make a diagnosis? Do they actually have any meaning at all considering there was no concern?
For reference, I was kept on the second lowest dose of Thyroxine and regularly told I needed AD's.
