I have had some consistant low values on my weekly CBC results. Can anyone explain if any of these relate to Lyme and/or RMSF?

Low Hemoglobin and Low Hematcrit
Low Sodium
Low Bilirubin

I've been on iv rosephin and doxy for 3 weeks. They were borderline low even before I started treatment.

Check out the Low sodium. I have a condition called hyponatremia from Low sodium. Needs Meds. Check w your dr.

Adrenal fatigue causes sodium loss.

Iron deficiency, Vitamin B12 deficiency, Folate deficiency all may cause low hemoglobin & low hematocrit (anemia).

Low bilirubin is probably a side-effect of the anemia...

Thank you both. Dr. said not to worry, but I was noticing a consistency in these each week. Didn't want anything overlooked at this point.
