Neut ABS- 18.7, Lymph ABS-4.2, Mono ABS-1.0, Baso and Eos--0 and Myelocyte-1, Dr suggested bone marrow biopsy. What could it possibly indicate?
Leukemia: Get the marrow done unless there is a clear explanation or the white cells return to normal. I am assuming this is new. Best wishes. ...Read more
Test is positive c.diff 3 wks after 10 days flagyl. Antibiotics again? Retest? Have UC, not having flare. CBC results and SED rate normal. Colonized?
Abx again: If you are having diarrhea, you definitely need to be treated again. It is very common for patients to have recurrent C diff with UC. Usually I will do a prolonged course of Flagyl and then consider oral vancomycin. If this doesn't work, I sometimes do a prolonged course of antibiotics. You should also be on probiotics. Last resort is a fecal transplant at a major medical center. Good luck ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
HBVtst=28wk-HBsAg, HBsAb, HBctotlAb=neg
HCVtst=10wk Rna,28wk ab=neg
None: There is no chronic c. Difficile infection. Untreated c. Difficile diarrhea can persist until effective treatment is given. The stool c. Difficile toxin test confirms the diagnosis. 30% of treated cases relapse and require repeat treatment. Future relapses become more likely and can require prolonged antibiotic treatment or fecal transplant therapy for cure. ...Read more
In my blood test my TLC 5460 neutrophil 80 (4368 abs)% lymphocyt 13(710 abs)% I do have fever since 2 days. Test for dengue -ve (is it normal?)
Your values suggest: that you may have a bacterial rather than viral infection. Dengue of course is caused by a virus. However, these results must ALWAYS take history & physical exam into account, as well as other tests that might have been done. One that I would suggest is a urinalysis & culture, UTI's are common in women but don't always have obvious symptoms. Dr. Anne ...Read more

Haemoglobin-15.5gm%, total WBC count-7500/cumm, diff WBC count-neutrophils-81%, lymphocytes-11%, eosinophils-8% and ESR -66mm1st hr.So what disease i hv?
My dr did not explain any of this, means viral infection? Wbc10.7, rbc5.11, neut 87%, lymph7%, neut abs 9.4, lymph abs .8, all others norm. Mailed w/o explanations, just curious if normal. Mono neg.
Should be followed: I suspect you've met up with a virus or some other stressor. These may just be common, chaotic fluctuations in the counts of lymphs and neuts. Your physician will decide when to repeat the cbc; if you have no symptoms, your next annual office visit might be okay. If the low lymphocytes persist, a check for HIV would be in order. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not much: The insurance industry requires "codes" or they won't pay for a doctor's care. The codes are numbers and letters, and have a description attached. After a doctor sees a patient, he chooses a code so he can be paid by the insurer. The code is related to one of the reasons for the doctor visit. The code is just a code. This one means advice or care was related to a higher risk pregnancy. ...Read more
1M ago had physical, CBC showed WBC 3.6 Neut Abs 1.68. Re-tested, WBC 3.9, Neut Abs 1.58, Lymph Abs 1.9. Other values normal. Should I be concerned?
Not now: Slightly abnormal lab values without any symptoms (I assume since this was a physical?) or recent infections. It is more likely the labs normalize or stay consistent without adverse effects, but may still warrant subsequent testing at a follow up visit. ...Read more
I have diarrhea, bleeding, abd pain/bloating, nausea 1 yr. Norm upper/lower GI, neg ova/parasite tests, positive c diff. Can c diff last that long?
Yes!: If you have above symptoms and past history of C Diff- sometimes it can be antibiotic resistant strain . You should be retested and seek medical attention ASAP! Besides it nutrition is very important: eat daily high dose probiotic food ( KEFIR, Greek plain Yogurt, Danactive, Lassi) and pod supplement as VSL#3 450-900 billions bacteria. Keep hydrated. Don't procrastinate to see doctor. ...Read more
Sometimes.: Calprotectin is a biochemical test for intestinal inflammation. As such, anything which increases intestinal inflammation, such as Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, infectious colitis, and bowel cancer can yield positive results. There can also be false positives from certain gastrointestinal medications. If yours is high, you should discuss it with your gastroenterologist. Good luck. ...Read more
