Do you have access to any pre-UC blood test results - is it possible you just tend toward this?
Any blood test I've had within the past several years, my white count has registered high. Almost a year ago, my the new PCP wondered if it was because of the arthritis inflammation or because my UC was not quite calm. Whatever the cause, I just don't worry about
it - I've got enough on my plate!
Interesting Killc, I guess I should take it as a good sign! (Just as my former PCP used to say of swollen glands: "Good they're swollen; they're doing what they're supposed to do!")
So, again, how low is the white count? Is it dramatically low, or just "on the low side"? If it were me, that would inform how worried I was about
Glad the UC is stabilized! If you're going be to ahead in one battle, that's a really good one to be ahead on!
From where I sit (and have for 8 years) you're on a really low dose of mesalamine already.
