My daughter was very ill in May where her body had gone into starvation mode and was starting to shut down, one of the tests that was done was a blood test which showed she had a very low white blood cells, she has had monthly blood tests which have shown that they have gradually got better but her recent one has shown that they have dropped again. Does anyone have any ideas what could be wrong? I'm pretty sure she is beng referred to the hospital now does anyone know what other tests they will do? Thank you.

Antibiotics and poss other meds can cause that, is she on any?

Everything is fine thank you, He said some people do have up and down blood counts and the fact that she looks and feels fine is good! Just got to keep a eye on here.
