Homeopath 's  Response
Hello friend,
I am a Homoeopath answering your question through Health care magic.
The role of the WBC is to swallow what ever harmful things or degenerated material is in the blood. In normal and healthy condition, this do not happen with RBC because RBCs are essential for the life of the individual. In sickness, the abnormal condition of swallowing the RBC by WBC is possible and can make conditions of anaemia. If the RBC is not healthy, immature, degenerated, or haemolysed due to several reasons like toxaemia, auto immune diseases, etc, WBC can remove such destroyed or disfigured debris of RBC by engulfing and processing them. This is a very dangerous condition depending upon the speed of the process. You have to consider the bad effects of drugs taken so far or recently taken also as causative factors.
As a Homoeopath, I can advise you to consult an expert Homoeopath to restore health for your Grandmother. Her remaining life can be healthier and happier through Homoeopathy.
