I recently got back my yearly CBC blood results and I noticed the following contrast between my CBC in May 2008 and June 2009:
May, 2008 WBC-6.4 range 4.0-10.5 and June,2009 5.0 range 4.0-10.5.
My hemoglobin in May 2008 was 12.1 and in June 2009 11.7. I am currently taking iron pills perscribed by the doctor. I am a 42 year old female with some heavy menstruating and I do not eat red meat or many green vegetables. I have begun to eat green veggies such as spinach.
Do the blood result changes reflect a serious change because my doctor didnt say anything about the drop in the WBC? Also I wasnt exhibiting any symptoms as an anemic except for eating ice. Does the WBC have anything to do with being anemic?
