I have had 5 blood tests in the last year and a half as part of my iron deficient anemia condition diagnosis & follow-up. On each test my white blood cell count has been low - even on my most recent test in September, which was over a year after switching to a Gluten free diet.

Does anyone have this problem, or know if it's related to celiac or an associated disease? As far as I know I'm pretty healthy now, however, I thought I was doing ok when I was diagnosed with Celiac.

Thanks,
Mike

I would also like more information on low white blood cells.
My aunt had this problem her whole life and was diagnosed "with some rare blood disorder". She ended up dying from luekemia, which is believed to be caused from the medication prescribed to generate white blood count. My generation of the family is the first to be diagnosed with celiac. My mother's side of the family is mostly deceased and rest of the family is hard to contact.
By the way, this side of the family is Finnish.
