What could a low WBC 2.5 (4 normal) , high monocytes 17 (normal below 12),, low lymphocyte, low abs neutrophil, , low abs lymphocyte be? I'm worried.

Your CBC: It's good that you're interested in your bloodwork, and nobody here can diagnose you or even say whether illness is present without more data, beginning with "How do you feel?" WBC absolute counts fluctuate wildly even from hour to hour. The best course may just be to repeat the count. Absolute neuts &/or lymphs below 1000 are worrisome but there's no danger until much lower levels. ...Read more

Normal: This CBC is within normal parameters. That said, it provides no evidence that the kid does not have a problem that does not effect the count.When using the site, the more info you submit about why the study was obtained, the better we can put it into that context and provide useful commentary. ...Read more

Wbc 8.7 hgb 12.5 Hct 39.7 my mcv, mch, & mchc all on low end of normal but monocyte level and % elevated at 0.74 & 8.5%?

Normal WBC and monos: WBC numbers vary widely, including monocytes, often slightly outside the normal range. I would be proud and happy to have results like these! If you are outwardly healthy and feel well, this is nothing to worry about. If you don't feel well, see a doctor and discuss the results. ...Read more

I hve a normal count of hemoglobin, rbc, WBC but my eosonophil & lymphocyte are elevated while my monocyte is low. What are d possible infections i hve?

How high?: You should ignore percentages of white cells returned on a cbc, pay attention only to absolute counts (they're of interest only if you're far from the reference range or abnormal cells are present), and look at the big picture with your physician. You'd be doing yourself a grave disservice by reading internet sites that discuss labs in isolation. If you feel well, i suspect nothing is wrong. ...Read more

What does low WBC and high monocytes mean?

Hard to comment: Without the actual numbers. How low? The monocytes may be a relative increase and not absolute. Ie a high percentage of a lower number may be perfectly normal in total number. ...Read more

How can WBC be low (1.4) and monocytes be high (21%) at the same time?

Low lymphs & neuts: I often wish labs simply wouldn't report the percentages. If you have an absolute shortage of lymphs and/or neuts, but a normal absolute monocyte count, the percentage of monocytes will be high. Your chemotherapy may account for your low counts. Best wishes. ...Read more

Is a 13.7 WBC and monocytes high enough to be leukemia?

Is a 13.7 WBC and monocytes high enough to be leukemia?

Not necessarily: 13.7 is not hugely abnormal, so you cannot make the diagnosis off that alone; however, if of those 13.7k there are a high percentage of blasts, then yes, this could be consistent with leukemia. ...Read more

I have high monocytes, lymphocytes, high platlets and wbc. what could this all mean?

How high?: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, it might have helped if you had provided the actual numbers rather than your interpretation "high". ...Read more

Wbc of 3.68 female adult is that normal monocytes of 20%?

Yes: The more important number is what is called the absolute monocyte count, which is derived by multiplying your WBC count by the percentage of monocytes (i.e. In your case 3.68 times 20% which equals about 0.73). Your absolute monocyte count is normal. When greater than 1.5, it could represent a problem. ...Read more

I recently had some blood work done. Results came back. Iron is low, but i also have low WBC (3.4) and high monocyte count (15). Why?

I recently had some blood work done.  Results came back.  Iron is low, but i also have low WBC (3.4) and high monocyte count (15).  Why?

Kindly ask ur: Dr the cause of ur low iron ;white count. These links would give u some ideas.On deficiency anemia among females is usually from heavy menstrual flow related to fibroids or intestinal bleeding and low white count white high monocytes could just be from a viral infection.Take care! http://www.M.Webmd.Com/a-to-z-guides/understanding-anemia-basics http://www.Nlm.Nih.Gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003. ...Read more

Leukocytosis: A high white count (leukocytosis) can be caused by many different things, most commonly an infection. Some people have high white cells due to a medication they are taking. Others are born with it. Others develop it because of dangerous conditions such as leukemia. Please consult with a hematologist to determine what form of leukocytosis you have. ...Read more

11.6 wbc, 6.45 absolute neutrophils, 3.78 absolute lymphocytes,  0.95 absolute monocyte, 0.02 immature neutrophils. Lab mark them high. Causes?

May be none.: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, this count may be your normal. The count is only mildly increased and if you have no symptoms, do not be concerned. See this site for more info.

My son has had high grade fever since 2 days. His CBC shows Wbc at the low end @ 4.9 and high monocyte @11.5. What does this indicate?

High monocyte count: Hi, I am assuming your son has been seen and evaluated by his pediatrician? Did he/she order the bloodwork? Most likely, with limited information, a high monocyte count with fever can be due to a viral infection, which most likely is self limited. Normally, I would repeat the cbc when he is healthy again. Also, I recommend you call his pediatrician just to confirm that this is his opinion also ...Read more

If WBC is high does that mean neutrophils monocytes and lymphocytes will be high too?

Not at all: Usually a high white count is due either to high neutrophils alone, or less often high lymphs alone. Do yourself a favor -- don't even look at your CBC unless you have a specialty interest. It's only one piece in the complex puzzle of diagnosis; little abnormalities seldom mean anything at all, and your physician has already taken the big abnormalities into account. ...Read more

What conditions could cause high monocytes, lymphs, bezors, low wbc and low platelets? Also fluctuations?

Abnormal blood cell: Bezors probably has nothing to do with mono/ lymphocytosis. Having said that it is inadequate information to connect the dots. Detailed history and examination is required otherwise it would be a case handled by GOOGLE doctor. Have it evaluated by a physician with complete history and physical ...Read more
