I was in my 30's when I was diagnosed. Counts were pretty high and never required treatment (60-90). I am approaching 50 now and have noticed a gradual and consistent decline in my numbers over the last 3-4 years. I am now in the 40s range. Just curious if there is an age when counts seem to more rapidly decline and I should be more diligent in my monitoring. I have been lucky so far and therefor pretty inconsistent with testing. Thanks!

I've not heard that counts decline with age--but one might develop a tolerance for a treatment that would make it less likely to be effective.
I have a friend who has had counts in the 70s most of his adult life--never has required treatment--and he's in his early 80s now.

I had asked if counts decrease with age - was told no.
