I have been healthy - I'm 65 years old having controlled highblood pressure and cholesterol. Last blood checked 6 months ago and WBC was 4.8. all other numbers good. Should I be worried?

Hello and welcome to justanswer,I shall be consulting you today

You have nothing to be worried provided that your are clinically well and have no fever or any signs of infection.

WBC count often becomes low due to certain asymptomatic viral infections or due to some antibiotics.This count should return to normal within a few weeks.

I hope this helps

Do let me know if you have any questions

If done for now please do leave a positive 5 star rating by clicking on the stars on top left of this thread.You can ask any follow up questions even after rating this positively.

Thank you

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
