low red & white blood cell count


Posted by JENNY

I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH CROHNS DISEASE ALMOST  4 YEARS AGO AND MY DISEASE IS WELL PROGRESSED ACCORDING TO MY GASTROLIGIST. I AM ON REMICADE RIGHT NOW AND IT DOESN'T SEEM TO BE WORKING. NOW MY RED&WHITE BLOOD CELL COUNT IS EXTREMLEY LOW. WOULD THE CROHNS DISEASE BE CAUSING THIS PROBLEM? THEY THINK THAT I MAY BE BLEEDING FROM MY GASTROINTESINAL TRACT BUT I AM SO CONFUSED. ONE MINUTE MY DOCTOR IS TELLING ME THAT I HAVE CROHNS AND THE NEXTED HE IS UNCURTAIN. MY BLOOD WORK HAS TESTED POSITIVE FOR THE CROHNS BUT I HAVE ALL THE INFLAMATION WHERE CROHNS STARTS. I WOULD JUST LIKE TO GET SOME ADVISE ON THIS BECAUSE I HAVE HAD 14 BOWEL SURGERIES IN THE FIRST 3 YEARS OF MY ILLNESS. THANK YOU.
