Constipation, blood test showed low white blood cells count, positive Hplyori test. What could be the cause?

I went to the doctor recently as I was suffering from constipation . She did a blood test and I got a phone call a couple of days later to say my white blood cell count was low. Then this morning I got a letter asking me to make an appointment because my Hpylori test has come back positive. I m really worried now - can you give me a clue about what could be causing this?

plz, take it easy,
just think of constipation, try to treat it by rich fiber diet, like green leafy vegetable, salads, excess intake of water, habit of going toilet routinely. some medicines like lactulose can help. donot get worried of low WBC count, if it is not very low (<4000). H pylori can do nothing.

You must be back to your Hospital to get treatment for Helicobacter pylori infection that untreated may contribute and aggravate gastritis even G-D ulcer. Very important is your diet, try avoid spicy, hot food, rice, fatty food and increase intake of fruits, vegetables, salads. Regarding white blood cells , you need definitely recheck your blood work and if is again abnormal, you may seek Hematologist consultation for properly advice.

Take care
