Question: 8 yr old son low white blood cells

 momma toslade - Wed Jul 07, 2010 4:37 pm

My son is eight and extremely underweight. He has not gained weight in over a year although he eats well. He has had two labs come back with low white blood cells. He has an appointment with a hematologist in two weeks. Just wanting to know what it could be? My grandpa had leukemia so this really scares me. Thank you for any information.

User avatar Hi momma toslade,
This information is extremely insufficient for us to offer at least some likely possibilities and guide you.
Kindly communicate all the laboratory results along with the laboratory reference ranges for each result.
Best wishes!
