No, but everybody is different

Here’s a good article I found after reading your question.

Again, I’m not saying you have any disease. Just giving you a link to info.

“One measure of risk is the absolute neutrophil count (ANC). The ANC is calculated by multiplying the total white blood count by the percent of neutrophils (also called segmented neutrophils, segs, polymorphoneucleated cells or PMNs, polys) ”

Here: [url][/url]

so, a low level is related to the risk of infection. Dr. said…..

Hmmm, I’d want to know more relating to why the counts are so low.

As a side note. There is an exhaustive (to read ) study that ends with “In summary, IVIG therapy did not reduce infections, bacteremia, fungemia, or infectious death in neutropenic patients. No proven role for IVIG exists for the prevention of infection in these patients.”

I’m an opposite sort of guy. You see while it did not reduce infections, neither did it make infections worse!
