My son's labs came back -his IgE is 6000. It was 8600 in Jaunary and went down to 5600 in April before lyme tx. He saw an allergist who did skin prick for food allergies but he has none. I thought it might be stomach parasites or worms or? We were in Indonesia two years ago and he was very sick with diarrhea.

Also his neutrophils are 1.4 -should be above 1.5.

Ferritin remains low at 50. It was 18 when he first got sick and has slightly improved.

Poor kid has just had a crap year.

We see the LLND tomorrow -tel appt.

Any thoughts out there?

Lymiemomster - I don't know what the IgE lab is.

Neutrophils don't look to bad...just being below the range. That is part of the WBC count, right?
Is your son's total wbc count in range?

My over all wbc has been below range the majority of my treatment.
the bottom end of the range is 4.0 and I went down to something like 2.6 at one point. My LLND and my GP both said not to worry about it.

My ferritin is 50 - was 45. so I am low
Interestingly - my RBC count and hemoglobin numbers are in range.

Did your son take an iron supplement...or did it just improve on it's own?
