User rating for this question
hello! I have Systemic Lupus, Myasthenia Gravis and Hypogammaglobulinemia, and am currently receiving IVIG infusions every 2 weeks. My latest blood work shows a low wbc (3.3), low neutrophils (36), high lymphocytes (48) and high monocytes (13). Absolute neutrophils are low at 1.2 x 10E3/uL. Can you explain these results to me? Just wondering if this could be Lupus related? Thanks in advance for your help!
