I have a very low wbc about 1.8,,, I am 71 years old and have had this condition since I was 15 yrs old... I developed gout about 4 yrs ago my uric acid level runs about 9.6... I have never used any gout meds like allapurinal be-cause I have been told it lowers the white blood cells and I don't want to make more problems for myself... Thank you
