Low White Blood Cell Count

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I am new here and still in the process of getting all the tests done. My CBC showed a low white blood cell count. 

Does anyone know if this affects the antibody tests? If the body is not making enough white blood cells as it is, will a specific antibody test give reliable results?

 

Thanks for taking the time to read :)

It should be fine.  The one test to check to make sure a celiac test is accurate is the immunoglobulin A (IgA) test. About 1 in 20 celiacs is deficient in IgA which will cause false negative celiac disease tests.

 

Welcome to the board.
