Customer Question

I have always had a low white blood count. Several doctors tried to find out what is wrong with me but nothing has come up. I believe I was born with an immune disorder. I have always gotten infections and I have always wanted to know why. Doctors have asked me have I had an AIDS test. I have but my medical condition seems to have persisted since I was born. My white count is always like a 1.9 , 1.8 , and 2.0. I have been as high as 2.2 and as low as 1.8. Does it sound like my condition is an congenital immune deficiency?

Thank you for your question.

What kind of tests have you had to further evaluate your low white cell count?

Please let me know.

Does it cause any symptoms like frequent infections etc? or no?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
when I used to get romantically involved, i used to get infected and had to go to a doctor just about every time. Some times, I get fevers, other than that, I do not get sick much. I am a clean person and try to steer clear of people who are sick or have something contagious. Does this sound like a congenital immune disorder or something that is rare that no doctor can make out? No doctor has a cure or answer for me. Are you able to make out what's causing this ailment? Thanks for responding. I will rate you shortly.

Thank you for your question.

I think that this is an acquired immune disorder.

Do you have the bone marrow report with you?

If yes, can you please send me a copy of the report along with the rest of the reports.

I am looking forward to your response.
