Ok this is very different from my first tests before starting tx. Everything that was high a month ago is now in range. So that's awesome. Ferritin was 988 and is now 31, which is CRAZY. But here are the things that WERE in range 4 weeks ago that are now OUT of range.
White blood cell count 3.5 (range 3.8 - 10)
Red blood cell count 3.79 (range 3.8 - 5.1)
Absolute neutrophils 1001 (range 1500 - 7800)
And this is just called "ABNORMAL" in my test result:
HCV RNA Quant <15 iu (detected)
HCV RNA Quant <1.18 log (detected)
In my quick internet search, it looks like it's possible that some DAAs can cause red and white blood cell counts to show as low, but not necessarily mean what they normally mean when low. Don't know if that's true or not. I don't feel bad or anything. It's just a strange test result to me. And the HCV RNA tests show the virus is there, just too low to be detected in a Quant test. So that's good. I prefer exact numbers, but whatever. Compared to 8 million I'm good with that for now.
Anyone else get low red and white blood cell counts mid tx? Is this common?
