Default Low white blood cell count.

I got the results of my annual medical yesterday; blood pressure 108/62, pulse 53, ferritin normal, electrolytes normal apart from slightly low sodium levels but that's normal for me, cholesterol normal, in fact everything was normal and according to my doctor I'm extremely fit and in excellent health apart from one thing, I have a very low white blood cell count.
Apparently someone with a such a low level of white blood cells should be extremely susceptible to all kinds of pathogens yet aside from catching the occasional cold in winter which I recover from in days I'm never ill. He compared the results with previous years and my white cell count has always been lower than normal but he couldn't understand why I'm not ill with the count being as low as it is this year so I wondered if anyone here has come accross something like this before.
