CBC low WBC and low PLT CNT, possible causes?
An_188441 posted:
Im a 22 year old male. Just went to the doctor to have some hand tremors checked out. That turned out to be a resting hand tremor and serious concerns there. On the labs work out they did on me there were some interesting results. The Complete Metab., Lipid Pa., TSH, all came up fine. The CBC is where i am nervous. I've done some research and have some ideas but any advice knowledge on the results would be appreciated.

-CBC Panel-
WBC 3.0__Low
RBC 4.61
HGB 15.1
HCT 41.5
MCV 90
MCH 32.8
MCHC 36.4__High
PLT CNT 135__Low
RDW 12.7
MPV 10.9__High
NEUT# 1.1__Low
NEUT% 38.1__Low
LYMPH# 1.4__Low
LYMPH% 47.5__High

Any thoughts or help on what could be causing this is greatly appreciated.

There is no doctor or health care professional on this community and no one over the internet can diagnose you. Talk to your doctor about these results, he/she knows your health history best.

I just got my labs back too and my platelets were at 95 but just came up to 117 but now my wbc is at 3. I am also concerned and not getting any answers or explanations. I have to see a hemotologist in a few weeks so I am anxiously awaiting that appointment. I have also been feeling pretty flu like the past few weeks, body aches and chills but no fever I don't think. Everyone is telling me not to worry and that its fine but I can't help but be concerned. I hope you find some answers!!!
