Guys–please Answer With What Your Norms Are.

December 12, 2006 at 8:04 am

Hi all,
Since I am still dealing with abnormal bloodwork, and having been sent to a hematologist oncologist, he said to me that maybe the high WBC and high differentials is due to the CIDP.
Since I am not a doctor, and I cannot answer that remark, I came to you guys to try and help me determine what is considered “normal” bloodwork for CIDP sufferers.
136 of you looked at this thread, but only 9 answered.
How can I say to the doctor, “yeah-it looks like the norm for CIDP shows it runs high”, or “no, according to a survey of the national forum for GBS/CIDP, {blank} number of people answered my question re norms, and most had {normal} or {high} bloodwork in the following areas…
Please help me out. He is going to watch the next 6 weeks of weekly draws, and if still high, is going to do a bone marrow biopsy, or a possibility of a lymph node biopsy, or both.
Please, please help with responses. The more that answer, the more I can tell him that, either “no, the norms are normal bloodwork”, or “yes, the consencus runs that {blank} runs high”.
