What could cause low neutrophil cell count?

What could cause low neutrophil cell count?

Lots of things: A low WBC can be from neutritional deficiency, autoimmune diseases, hormone disorders, bone marrow failure states (aplastic anemia, myelodysplastic syndrome) and leukemias. It can also be seen in someone who otherwise seems healthy, and may even have a normal bone marrow on biopsy (benign neutropenia). Viral infections can cause low WBC counts too. Read more

What can be the cause of low neutrophil WBC count?

Neutropenia: A low neutrophil count (neutropenia) can be caused by many different things. Some people have low 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 neutropenia you have. Read more

Can a uti cause low neutrophil count and also can somone have a uti without burning?

UTI can be asymptomi: The UTI can be without symptoms but does not necessarily cause a low blood count. That woud be there for another reason. If is it an infection involving the kidney - we call this pyelonephritis and you can have fevers and elevated blood counts. Your physician will evalaute you for this and can have you se a urologist to clarify the invovlement of the urinary tract. Read more

What is the cause of low neutrophil and WBC count?

Many things: Medications, infections, bone marrow problems. The most common is medications. Sometimes in 6-12% of the population, the WBC is low. Other reasons are we do not know or so called idiopathic neutropenia. Hope this helps. Read more

Where are Neutrophils produced? And what causes a abnormally low result of Neutrophils? What is the most important on a result I should be looking at?

Where are Neutrophils produced? And what causes a abnormally low result of Neutrophils? What is the most important on a result I should be looking at?

Produced in Bonemaro: Neutrophils are produced in the bone marrow. The reasons for low neutrophils can be varied but we must know your actual value in order to help you interpret the value as there is a wide range of normal values, which can be on the lower end of the normal range. So send us your CBC results and Neutrophil counts done on more than 1 occasion (you may repeat them if done once only. Read more

What causes neutrophils and WBC to be low while lymphs are high?

What causes neutrophils and WBC to be low while lymphs are high?

Many, many things: The list is too long to list here, and it depends on the patient's individual circumstances. In younger patients, it is usually related to some transient infection. In older adults, it needs a more dedicated work up. A trained hematologist can sort this out in 2 visits, with some standard testing, including a review of the blood under the microscope. Read more

Low WBC & neutrophils. What would cause this?

Low WBC & neutrophils. What would cause this?

Normal variation?: It depends on how low and in what context. Black americans (and some other ethnic/ancestry groups) can have so-called "ethnic neutropenia" (neutropenia is low neutrophils), and/or low WBC. Low WBC and neutrophils can also happen in bone marrow disorders, and infections. I would recommend seeing a hematologist. Read more

Infection.: Depends on relative proportions, but in general without symptoms this is sometimes a big nothing. Could potentially be an infection, but you would very likely be aware of it through some other means such as pain, etc. Read more

Chol/hdlc 530 h bun 7 l creatinne 0.67 l sedrate 39 h neutrophils 41 l could you please tell me what does it means and what causes these high and low?

530 would be: Quite high for a cholesterol. "low" BUN and cr of no consequence, as is neutrophil of 41%. Sed rate is a nonspecific measure of inflammation, immune, or infectious process. Without the clinical context it is hard to make any profound conclusions regarding these results except you need a cholesterol management plan. Read more

What can cause low neutrophils, high eosinophils and high limphocytes?

What can cause low neutrophils, high eosinophils and high limphocytes?

Depends: It depends on how high the eosinophil count is. If it is over 1500 on more than one occasions, you need to see an allergist or hematologist. Many things can cause high lymphocyte counts (viral infection, leukemia etc). Read more

Low neutrophils and high lymphocytes ihad a 36 low and a 52 high what would cause these, and is this serious?

It depends: One cannot look just at lynphocyte and neutrophil percentages. It must be interpreted in the context of the total white blood cell count. Read more

What causes constant high eosinophils and low neutrophils for 5 years straight?

What causes constant high eosinophils and low neutrophils for 5 years straight?

How far off?: If the neutrophil count is above 1000 absolute, you are not in danger. If the eos are above maybe 1000 a hematology consult may be in order. Often we never find the explanation. If you are on any meds, even over the countr stuff, let your physician know. Read more

Can hemochromatosis cause low WBC and low neutrophil?

Can hemochromatosis cause low WBC and low neutrophil?

HFE and Leucopenia: It is very rare for leucopenia to be caused by primary hemochromatosis. In fact, in one study (see http://www. Ehealthme. Com/cs/haemochromatosis/leukopenia) only 2.5 % of patients had it. Of these, most had an associated hematopoietic condition or a drug reaction. I would ask your hematologist to investigate the latter two possibilities. Read more

Can chronic sinituitis be viral and cause high lymphocytes 52% n low neutrophils 33% absolute #'s were in normal range though? Scared of cancer

Can chronic sinituitis be viral and cause high lymphocytes 52% n low neutrophils 33% absolute #'s were in normal range though? Scared of cancer

Numbers fine: Those numbers are fine for your lymphocyte and neutrophil percentages. You can have virus infections that hold on for a while causing symptoms, but more likely the chronic symptoms are caused by allergies. I would work with your doc or and ENT to determine cause of your chronic symptoms, and then add if an allergist if felt to be allergic in nature. Read more
