Cbc- low lymphocytes and high segmentor what does it indicates?

Cbc- low lymphocytes and high segmentor what does it indicates?

Not very much: The key is the absolute counts of lymphocytes and granulocytes. I often wish percentages weren't even reported. 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

Absolute count?: Percentages mean nothing. If your absolute lymphocyte count is above a thousand, I wouldn't pursue this at all. ...Read more

Ask your doctor: Your doctor needs to guide you further. Unless the lymph nodes are bigger than 1-2cm, they are unlikely to be enlarged due to lymphoma/hodgkin disease. If there was cancer, they would be growing bigger with time. If they are getting bigger a biopsy of the node can be done and you will have your answers. But if they have not increased over the past one year, that is against the diagnosis of cancer. ...Read more

I have symptoms. Had CBC done my absolute lymphocyte count was 1.4 normal was listed as 1.0-4.0. Should I be concerned since it's close to low?

I was a little worried about my lymphocyte percentage being low. Could someone look at my cbc.?

Trust your physician: You have someone who ordered this test. Please let them report to you the findings of the lab. If you feel that things then are not going well in that relationship you owe it to tell them and then to decide if you need another medical provider.

The CBC or complete blood cell count can be quite complex. Let them teach you. ...Read more

Low lymphocytes for years on CBC, all else ok, 2 chest cts 14 mos apart both show same mildy enlarged L-nodes, some bilat, below 2 cms, diagnosis?

Any symptoms?: There may be no diagnosis. If you do not have any symptoms and the only abnormalities are the lab tests and chest CT, you may not have any disease.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, 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, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Sir. What drug can I take if my differential count in CBC is abnormal, my lymphocyte is low and my neutrophil is high. Thanks.?

No drug: Sometimes, abnormal CBC differential can be a variation. If CBC differential is truely abnormal, we need to find out what the underlying causes are. Is it due to infection, inflammation or other blood conditions? Once we know the causes, we can treat them accordingly as indicated. No drug to treat numbers, and never treat numbers, TREAT PATIENTS. ...Read more

Is it normal that my lymphocytes are low end of normal range 1.033 with no symptoms for 3 months now. In past they were 1.5.rest of cbc normal. Thanks?

Common: You can have low lymphocyte count and be asymptomatic for a multitude of common reasons: stress, common cold, side effect of a drug as steroids, and others. Can go up to several months before it reverts on its own, if you do have symptoms, see your doctor, otherwise just observe, your numbers are fine, but why are you testing your blood that often to start with? . ...Read more

%lymphocytes is high (52%) and %immature granulocytes is low (38%) but rest of CBC is normal - should I be concerned? I am 65 y/o female.

Possibly but: But only if this is a persistent finding since the profile is also compatible with a current viral infection. I would repeat the test in a month. If the finding is similar, then you need to talk to your doctor re. Whether a hematology consult is needed. It would have been more informative if you had given us the actual WBC count instead of just a %. ...Read more

Numbers are numbers: The rest of the story is needed, as these test result themselves don't mean anything... without hearing the rest of the story. One's regular doctor, who knows why a blood test was ordered and who has examined the patient, can be helpful here. Otherwise, these numbers are just numbers... could be anything, or could be nothing. Can use HealthTap PRIME to talk to a live doctor so resolve this issue. ...Read more

I got a CBC blood test and my lymphocytes reading was 45.5% and was flagged high...and my leucocytes 3.67 was flagged low.

Is that all?: These values fluctuate wildly and if both absolute lymphocyte and absolute neutrophil counts are reasonably close to the normal range, and all else is good, I'd ignore it. ...Read more

I am wondering what having a high % neutrophil count with a low % lymphocyte count means as every time I have a CBC done it shows this.

Absolute counts?: If both the absolute neutrophil count and the absolute lymphocyte count are within normal range, simply forget about it. It's you. Trust you are HIV negative. If the absolute lymphocyte count is below 1000, or the absolute neutrophil count consistently above 10000, a hematology consult might be in order. Glad you are proactive; best wishes. ...Read more

Neutrophil % high at 76.2% along w/ high neut. Absolute at 7.0, lymphocyte % low at 16.5% -- all other bloodwork (cbc) normal. What could this be?

Likely nothing to. .: Worry about if you are otherwise feeling well. Your total WBC count, based on the data you provide, is within the normal range. The modest left shift (ie., relative increased neutrophil %) could indicate an effort to address a mild bacterial infection. But more likely it's just normal variation. I do wonder what prompted the check to begin with? Additional details? ...Read more

Syphillis positive but bf neg. He's the only guy I've ever been with. Low absolute lymphocytes 708 range is 850 up on CBC test. Could it be lupus?

False pos test?: It sounds like you might have a biological false positive test, i.e. you don't really have syphilis. And it sounds like you might already know that false pos syphilis tests sometimes occur in lupus and other autoimmune diseases. This is a complex situation -- discuss with your doctor. See an infectious diseases or STD specialist if the positive test is confirmed as syphilis. Good luck! ...Read more

I am feeling fatigued in the evening, I done CBC, it shows low neutrophils i.E 39% also high lymphocytes i.E 49% what does that indicate?

May be viral source: Check your personal physician. With the information you gave there is a possibility of a viral infection. Lymphocytes usually protect us from viral infections, on the other hand, neutrophils protect us from bacterial infections. With viral infections, you will not need antibiotics. Most of time, viral infection symptoms will go away on their own, just rest well and keep a balanced healthy diet. ...Read more
