WHAT DOES IT MEAN IF I HAVE LOW WBC AND HIGH PLATELETS, HIGH SEGMENTED NEUTROPHILS AND LOW EOSINPHILS??
Nonspecific: These tests rarely tell you much and have to be interpreted in the context. The normals are based on averages but highs and lows have no clinical significance.

If the absolute counts of both types of cells are reasonably near the reference range, then don't worry about them; and even these numbers fluctuate wildly. It's more important that no abnormal types of cells are present. If your physician is not concerned, don't be either. ...Read more
