Hello,

I'm Dr. Nissinen. Is this the first time your blood results were abnormal?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
It's been a long time since I had a blood test. In past haven't tested these areas. But no memory of a doctor telling me they were concerned about my results. According to the charts I am just under in all areas so not sure how concerned I should be.

Hello

I am not seeing a real problem here

Please put in your lab reference ranges and tell me your concern.

I will give you an initial answer or ask you a question, but be sure to use reply to expert to communicate with me as needed.

You essentially have normal values

Your white count is a tiny bit low, which is not a concern.

In the absence of other abnormalities, we see this all the time and it is not a problem.

I found the ranges.

See my answer above.

There is no problem here.

I am sure your doctor has told you the same.
