Well, i have to get my blood taken allot from the medication I take, and I've had this problem before. It just means that when you get sick its harder for you to get better, you have a higher chance of getting sick, and when you get hurt you don't heal as fast. Upping your protein intake is very easy if you like egg's. I had to eat two eggs a day to get my levels back to normal. I hope I helped ,, ! :)
