My blood work results what do they mean White blood count 19.8, neutrophils 89.6, lymphocytes 6.9?
It can,,,: CBC stands for Complete Blood Count, which includes platelet, white blood cell count, hemoglobin, and hematocrit. These last 2 values indicate the amount of blood in your body by concentration and percent of blood volume. A more thorough report can also show the size range and number of red cells along with a differential of the white cells. ...Read more
Blood counts: Monocytes=a type of white blood cell that can vary widely red blood count=number of red cells in a given volume of blood; your value may be slightly elevated which could indicate several possibilities including polycythemia from smoking or other disease white blood count=number of white cells in a given volume of blood.

Can you explain my lab results albumin 3.6 few large platelets lymphocytes % 4% neutrophils% 86% white blood count 12.6x10^3 ul. ?
This is serious: No flippancy or disrespect intended. I'm not so concerned about the lowish albumin, and even less about the few big platelets, but your absolute lymphcyte count is way-low and your high absolute neutrophil count also worries me greatly. You need a fully history, physical exam, HIV test, probably anti-nuclear antibody and more from a competent, determined physician. ...Read more

Can't tell. need w/u: Normal range will vary -depending on the range used on each lab. On my lab, hb of 18 is still normal for male. Your white blood cell and platelet are also within normal range.
