Why is there a deterioration in the wbc count?

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here...I'm not sure why my white blood cell count is very low 2.3 and platelets down. I just had an endoscopy that showed gastric erosion and a colonoscopy that showed 2 small polyps of diverticulitis. But my blood count has the Dr. stumped. I've been referred to a hematologist for further check but wanted some insight beforehand.

Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.
Your gastric erosion and polyps has no relation with your low counts. You may have viral infection or malaria like infection. If your count is not responded to treament then bone marrow examination is needed to find the exact cause.
Consult your doctor and take treatment accordingly.

Hope I have answered your question, if you have any doubts then contact me at bit.ly/Drsanghvihardik, I will be happy to answer you.
Thanks for using health care magic.
Wish you a very good health.
