When an exam of vaginal discharge yields white blood cells, does that mean a CBC would show a low WBC count?
No: The body produces and distributes white cells as needed. The white blood cells most often found in the vaginal discharge are neutrophilic polymorphonuclear leukocytes, and these are called 'blood cells' simply because they're easily obtained from blood (where they travel) but visit many sites while on their tours of duty. ...Read more
Can you explain results of CBC test shows high wbc, low hematocrit, low mcv, low mch, high platelet count, low lymphocytes and monocytes - what does it mean?
Iron deficiency?: I'm a lab specialist. Labs mean nothing apart from a history and physical exam, and labs aren't simply "low" or "high" -- HOW low / high is key. You owe it to yourself to get with your physician. If this is iron deficiency (which I suspect, rule out thalassemia), your physician has a duty to find out whether, and WHY -- it means serious treatable illness until proved otherwise. Stay proactive. ...Read more

Two years ago a cbc showed absolute NEU of 2.06 (wbc=5.7). Last week cbc shows absolute NEU of 1.51 (wbc=4.6). Caucasian adult. Is this a concern?
Physiologic variatio: The range of normal for absolute neutrophils is fairly broad, and intended to include the changes due to individual variation as well as physiologic variation. Your values suggest the latter, changes over time due to the natural course of life encountering new and different stimuli. Not to worry. ...Read more
I did a CBC test recently and these were some of my results WBC 3.4, hb 10.8, haematocrit 35.9, mean cell hb 24.4 & mean cell hb conc 30.1..Is this ok?
Family practice : Your WBC count is a little low. Not real bad however. A viral illness can give your a low level. Your hg is a little low as well. That means you are slightly anemic. Women still with a menstral cycle can and usually are slightly anemic. Iron supplements would be helpful if you are symptomatic. These levels i wouldn't be overly concerned unless you are symptomatic. ...Read more

Numbers are just...: Numbers are just numbers. Without the whole picture, such as why was labwork done, numbers usually cannot tell much. The result values in this question, in a healthy person, are generally considered normal. One should ask his ordering doctor if the result is ok in the setting of his whole picture. ...Read more

My son has had high grade fever since 2 days. His CBC shows Wbc at the low end @ 4.9 and high monocyte @11.5. What does this indicate?
High monocyte count: Hi, I am assuming your son has been seen and evaluated by his pediatrician? Did he/she order the bloodwork? Most likely, with limited information, a high monocyte count with fever can be due to a viral infection, which most likely is self limited. Normally, I would repeat the cbc when he is healthy again. Also, I recommend you call his pediatrician just to confirm that this is his opinion also ...Read more
