There are numerous conditions that can cause theses changes. Anemia - the lower number of red blood cells - is either caused by not enough production usually due to adrenal gland abnormalities marrow disorders, or, is caused by increased break down. Two many is usually a sign of dehydration, or certain conditions known as dyscrasies. The change in the ratio of white blood cells is called a shift and it depends on what kind of change precisely is occurring, but, sounds indicative of a viral illness. I AM NOT A DOCTOR. Seeing as how these test have already been run though, there must be a physician involved so I hope my layman's terms helped. Good luck and God Bless.
