  • Leukopenia has nothing to do with iron or anemia. It is a low white blood cell (WBC). It's probably nothing and if you have another test it will be normal. If it continure to be low then you will need more tests to rule out blood diseases.

  • they ran all kinds of blood tests and ruled out the major diseases. the dr thinks that my low iron may be trigging the while blood counts.
