Hi S.---It is so hard to know exactly what to do, mostly because I think that there is no one answer that will fit every person. By that I mean, these blood count numbers are what is usual and typical, but it doesn't necessarily mean that your daughter is having health problems because they are slightly out of range. Several years ago I discovered that I run a low white blood count. But I don't get sick. We watched the numbers over a couple of years, and my doc, at the time, actually had me go to a hematologist for tests. We got to the point where next steps would be to do a bone marrow biopsy, but because all previous tests were normal, we didn't go there as that is a very invasive and painful test. Bottom line, a low white blood count is normal for me. SIDE NOTE: be very careful running lots of tests that might be unnecessary. The note that a possible biopsy was noted in my medical records made my ineligible for health insurance 3 years ago. Tests can be great. Most are unnecessary, costly and a future problem waiting to happen.
So try to relax about the bloodwork for now. You didn't mention, is she still having problems with excessive thirst and urination?
I think I offered some thoughts on your first post, and I'd like to share again that I am able to offer you suggestions on how to strengthen your daughter's immune system. Please give me a call, I can tell you what I've learned in my work with top docs and naturopaths. I know I can help, no strings attached. I just hate to hear of your worry, and of your little one getting sick all of the time. It doesn't have to be that way.
BTW---your doctor works for you. Yes, he is more knowledgeable about many things, but he/she doesn't know everything, and he really doesn't know what he doesn't know. It sounds like it's time to find a new pediatrician. Good luck. Please call. D. ###-###-####
