Suggest remedies for low WBC and RBC counts

I m a 32 year old mother of three, pretty healthy aside from mild MVP and brady cardia. Been feeling really tired, brain fog, forgetful, as if I was with child but I m not. I had a tubal after my third child 5 years ago. Regular follow up with blood work showed low WBC at 3.5 two weeks ago and a follow up now shows both white and red blood count are in the low zone wbc 3.3 and red 3.72. My Hemoglobin is a 12.0 and Hematocrit 36.1 . Looking at records it seems I run on the lower end of what normal is but getting lower to which now in the out of range low numbers. I feel drained and not like a 32 year old! My doctor wasn t worried about the low number two weeks ago but now that my reds in the low I want to know why? I have great health insurance and think maybe I need to seek answers from a Mayo clinic or a specialist of some kind. I can t live like this forever and my fatigue seems to be getting worse over the last couple years. I get plenty of sleep but feel lifeless by 5pm. Who can help me?

Hello,

Blood transfusions. Transfusions help people with low levels of red blood cells and platelets.

Medications. Your doctor may prescribe medications that stimulate the production of more blood cells. Stopping or delaying treatment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
