Does anyone know what it means if absolute neutrophils are low on blood test? My son tested low this week so his doc wants to retest in a week to see if still low. If he's still low I'm told he will need to start a shark liver oil supplement - huh??? What is that? Anyone know if low absolute neutrophils is a big deal and/or what can be done to improve?

Low neutrophils is called neutropenia, and it may have several causes: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neutropenia

For years we observed perpetually low neutrophils and high lymphocytes that coincided with clinical symptoms. Initially we suspected PANDAS but instead we found infection with Borrelia (Lyme disease) and Ehrlichia. After treatment, the clinical symptoms were greatly reduced and the neutrophils and lymphocytes returned to normal values. We used neutrophils and lymphocytes as one measure to determine the level of infection and efficacy of treatment.
