my WBC's got very low (.4) I was placed on Neupogen shots (had to adminster them myself)... I dont think there are natural ways to boost WBC's.

I had an issue with them shooting up way too high after a series of those injections.

However, I never did get sick even when my WBC's were extremely low.

In the uk they tend not to give drugs but to wait until the count is higher or give a transfusion.

This happened once to Barry when he was receiving chemo. He had to wait a week (he did not need a transfusion] but treatment commenced the following week.
