Long story short:

I have been having mild anemia off and on for the last 4-5 months. I was sent for a retic count, but this time I wasn't anemic, but my retic was still low. I was tested again a month later and the same story:

Test#1
RBC- 4.57
HB- 140
HCT- .410
WBC- 5.1
ABS LYM- 1.2 (LOW)
ABS NEU- 3.3
PLAT- 177
ABS RETIC- 15 (LOW)

Test#2
RBC- 4.53
HB- 141
HCT- .411
WBC- 4.8 (low..barely)
ABS LYM- 1.2 (low)
ABS NEU- 3.0
PLAT- 188
RETIC- 13 (LOW)

As you can see, I am borderline low everything, but not anemic. Yet my retic count has stayed low over the tests. My GP referred me to a hematologist back during the 1st test...but is more concerned now that my retic count is staying low, but she is confused.

How can the retic stay low...but I am not anemic, just borderline low???

Thanks in advance.
Yes I do, sorry about that...they are in red...
