Blood test showed lymphs 16.7, and neutrophils absolute as 7.25. What are lymphs and neutrophils absolute?

WBC differentials: Are reported as percentages and as absolute values which is the total WBC mulled by the percentage. The absolute numbers are more meaningful. An absolute lymph of almost 17 is high, where a percent is on the low side. ...Read more

My absolute Lymph blood test is low at 0.6 (Normal is 0.7 to 3.1). Previous years it was 0.7 and 0.9. Other tests are normal. Is this serious?

My absolute Lymph blood test is low at 0.6 (Normal is 0.7 to 3.1). Previous years it was 0.7 and 0.9.  Other tests are normal.  Is this serious?

Abnormal Blood Count: This would be considered a mild abnormality and does not necessarily raise any alarm signals. But, with the gradual decrease in the lymph count, a repeat CBC by your PCP at a later date may be helpful to determine if this is an ongoing process or something not clinically significant. ...Read more

Neutrophils 77 slightly out of range but absolute neutrophils normal. Why elevated neutrophil level on the one blood test?

Totally meaningless: If the absolute values are in reference range, ignore it totally. I wish labs wouldn't even report these percentages. And reference ranges themselves are set up so that several percent of healthy people fall outside. A short swim in cold water can triple your neutrophil count. Don't treat labs -- look at people. ...Read more

I've had relative lymphocytosis on every blood test for a year now + now the absolute count is a little high too. Is this at all concerning?

I've had relative lymphocytosis on every blood test for a year now + now the absolute count is a little high too. Is this at all concerning?

Lymphocytosis: Hi, I'm wondering if anyone has done any peripheral smear? Any infectious or connective tissue work up? Although lymphocytosis is not a common side effect for Abilify but there has been some report, Your doctor could order a Flow Cytometry to make sure no blood malignancy existed although I highly doubt that. ...Read more

What are normal absolute reference lym and gra blood test values for 6 month babies and when one should consider more serious investigation?

See below: I suspect what you are referring to are lymphocyte and granulocyte counts. Visit this site for information in normal ranges. Infants may have slightly higher lymphocyte counts. Discuss the results with your doctor to see any additional investigation is needed. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003657.htm. ...Read more

In blood test. Neutrophils low. Lymphs high Monocytes high .But only reading high on absolute was Granulocytes and Neutrophils. Cause for concern?

In blood test.  Neutrophils low. Lymphs high  Monocytes high .But only reading high on absolute was Granulocytes and Neutrophils. Cause for concern?

How high?: Percentages mean nothing. If your absolute granulocyte count was slightly above the reference range without abnormal forms and you feel well, it means nothing; this fluctuates and a cold shower can double it. ...Read more

When reading blood test results, what does the term "absolute" mean when in front of "white blood cell count"?

When reading blood test results, what does the term "absolute" mean when in front of "white blood cell count"?

Complete Blood Count: The CBC counts the major cells types in the blood and gives a picture of health. Newer cell counters are able to accurately recognize several main classes of white bc, neutrophils, lymphocytes, monocytes and others. Thus the actual number of these cells can be counted in a given volume of blood- the absolute #. Older methods used the total WBC and then multiplied by the % for each type . ...Read more

I had a blood test for my flare up with IBS, everything came back normal except : Absolute Immature Granulocytes-.08k/ul & ImmunoglobinA 444mg/dl.

See below: 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, your lab results are within normal limits. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco or alcohol in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
