View Full Version : CBC Help?

08-06-2008, 09:47 AM

My wife has been diagnosed with SLE. She is on Plaquenil, Prednisone and Imuran. She is actually doing great right now, thank God. I was wondering, while her WBC and Platelets have normalized I have seen changes in her RBC and wbc components? Everything seems much better, but there are some things out of range?

While the medications are helping most things, could it be causing the other values to go out of range? Is there other causes I should be worried about with these numbers?

Thanks in advance for any comments!!!

Currently her CBC is?
