Achord, welcome to the forum. I am so sorry that your son has gone through so much and is still going through it. I assume the hep B and C is from transfusions back before they had screening for hepatitis.
Although I have hep C and cirrhosis, I've had no personal experience with high or low blood counts. I suggest you nail down his hepatologist, if he has one, and question him directly about what concerns you. It may be difficult to get info as privacy issues come into play, since your son is an adult. You may have to ask questions in his presence, unless you have Power of Attorney.
Sorry not to be of more help, but perhaps someone else has more to offer.

Thanks for the reply,
my son is in the military and trying to get in touch with Dr. has been so aggravating..to us both..
Thank You Frustrated,
With the military, he gets his blood test on the base, but his Dr's are 2 hrs away and it's impossible to catch one of his Dr's. He has to wait 2 to 3 wks after blood work till his liver counts come in to see the Dr. In the mean time we are looking at these counts that show critical and High and it gets our minds going crazy till time to see Dr.
My son will be getting a medical retirement after 14 yrs in military and 3 tours in Iraq, but that won't be till his 4 yrs at this base is up in July. He did read something showing counts could show rheumatoid arthritis. Could it be? So we wait, and wait, and wait.
