If you get a negative CBC test result, can you still have lupus?

yes in that a CBC or complete blood cell count may demonstrate low total white blood cell count, low lymphocyte count, anemia with low red blood cell count or low platelet count, but this doesn"t always occur in lupus.Therefore, even a completely normal CBC doesn"t exclude the possibility of the condition. Admittedly, most persons with active and moderate to severe lupus would at the least have anemia demonstrable on the CBC. Yet mild cases are often accompanied by normal CBC.
