[QUOTE=TNMomma;5293802]I have been sent to a Hematologist after a check up with my PCP. My White Blood Cells have come back low. They are in the process of figuring out what is going on. My first lab results from the Hematologist came back showing my WBC's are still low, my B-12 is in the low-normal range, and he has recommended me taking shots. My iron level came back at 5! That certainly explains why I am always tired and cranky. My FANA test was borderline positive and will be retested in a few months. For now he has me on B-12 supplements/shots and I have started taking Iron.

Does anyone know if Iron deficiency can cause low White Blood Cell counts??

Thanks,[/QUOTE]

My total iron is a 16 and my ferritin is a 7,my wbc go up and down. In some cases depending on the type and cause of anemia it can drag the wbc down. My ana was negative. I would get yours tested again. Feel better
