Low White Blood Cell Count.

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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.

    • I'm hoping to donate to celiac research this year.  Does anyone have recommendations as to where to donate?  Celiac Disease Foundation?  Celiac research at a hospital or university? Thanks!
    • Thank you so much for your responses!! It is so hard because there are so many unknowns, inconclusive results, and lots of waiting!! I didn't realize it was so difficult to even get the tests to begin with. Thank you both SO much. I feel much better & am more comfortable going into my doctors appointment. 
    • Just looking at its name, one might wonder if buckwheat is safe for people on a gluten-free diet. However, unlike its name, buckwheat does not naturally contain any wheat or gluten. As a result, buckwheat is generally safe for people with celiac disease on a gluten-free diet. Turns out that buckwheat and wheat are from different, unrelated botanical families. As with quinoa, buckwheat is the seed of a flowering plant, as such it is not considered a grain or a cereal. View the full article
    • Oh my I just re read your post. Ok now I am going to definitely say yes-you need to find someone who will test you. If this Dr. will not you may want to look for one who will. I slowly reveal my issues on here and I still keep things close to the vest. My pregnancies/labor/deliveries were impacted by my not knowing of my illness earlier.
      I lost my first as a missed miscarriage IUGR- likely undiagnosed Celiac. I was high risk delivery with my daughter and then a high risk pregnancy/delivery with my son. I had problems with both and was far from "normal" with both of the children I am blessed to have. I had a horrible  rash after my daughter that was diagnosed as PUPPP by physical observation/no sample taken. which I continued to experience on and off in milder form over the subsequent years after on my butt, elbows, knees, arms, hands etc. I see on here  that is spot on DH. Another missed opportunity. My son had additional problems during pregnancy, had NICU, PICU and surgeries within the first year of life. I am strongly encouraging you to look into this now if you can check for Celiac and other auto immune now before starting your pregnancies for you and your child/children's health and well being. That way you know how to best support both you health and are fully nutritionally supported before pregnancy.   Best wishes and good luck
    • I try not to take a lot of ibuprofen as I know it's not great for my gut.  But, when I need it, I take Costco's Kirkland ibuprofen.  It is labelled gluten free and I have had no issues with it.
