low white blood count

My daughter has low white blood count for the last two years, for the most recent CBC test done by a hemotologist, the count has gone down to 3200 , it was 3700 in last August. The RBC is only 38, and MCV indicates slightly larger red blood cells. B12 and Floic acid are above normal. I believe B12 is larger than 1000. TSH is 1.77.

She does have food allergy to gluten and milk, very cold hand, the fingers are all red and dry. Her hair is thinning. She also has had yeast problems with high antibody to yeast. High Aluminum in her hair analysis, she used to have high mercury and tin in her hair.

The hemtologist will see her again in the mid Feb, I just wonder what could be the problem? Is it aluminum? What would be the characteristics of anemia caused by heavy metals?

Chronic infection displays a low white cell count. Yeast and fungus in the gut can constitute a chronic infection. Yeast and fungus grow more vigorously in the presence of heavy metals, particularly mercury. Mercury inhibits the metabolic effect of the thyroid system lowering body temperature, especially in the extremities. This can affect the growth of skin, hair and nails. The presence of yeast and fungus as well as heavy metals dysregulates the immune system and produces allergies. The most common sources of heavy metals are dental amalgams and fish Toxic conditions tend to produce a mild anemia. Hope that helps. By the way, none of this is meant to diagnose your daughter. You have to draw your own conclusions. Your hematologist may or may not have a clue.
