I have high absolute neutrophils. What's this mean?

Talk with provider who ordered test to put in context. ...Read more

What is absolute neutrophils and what does it mean when mine is high my absolute neutrophils level is high

Neutrophils: Neutrophils are white blood cells that help to fight bacterial infections. The absolute neutrophil count (anc) is used to assess how many neutrophils a person has. A count that is too low can put you at risk for bacterial infections. A high count can indicate that your body is fighting an infection, or can be from an inflammatory injury such as a burn, heart attack or appendicitis. People who do not have a spleen also can have a higher than normal anc. It can even be caused by medications (such as steroids) or stress. Very rarely a high ANC can indicate malignancy such as chronic myelogenous leukemia, but people usually have other signs and symptoms, also. Because of this very wide range of high ANC causes, the context in which the test was ordered and how high it actually is is very important. If you are worried about your test result, call the doctor that ordered the test and ask what they were looking for and if your high ANC is a concern. ...Read more

Elevated neutrophils and elevated hemoglobin?

Maybe Infection.: The elevation of neutrophils coukl mean bacterial infection, as these cells are important in fighting this kind of infection. The high hemohlobin seems nonspecific, in abscence of other symptoms and signs. It could possibly mean a polycythemia, one of the porphorias, or a myeloproliferative disorder, which could explain the high neutrophils. It can also be from high altitude. See dr.
