Share on twitter bookmark & share printer-friendly version a complete blood count (CBC) test measures the following: •the number of red blood cells (rbc count) •the number of white blood cells (wbc count) •the total amount of hemoglobin in the blood •the fraction of the blood composed of ...Read more
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
WBC: White blood cell increase in a complete blood count, means there is an increased number of the total group of white blood cells. They are comprised of neutrophils, monocytes, lymphocytes, basophils and eosinophils, with sometimes having blasts present in abnormal states. Elevations can develop for a variety of reasons, with infections being the most common. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
On a CBC what does a gr% of 80.5 (h), ly% 11.8 (l), gr#8.5 (h) and mo# 0.7 (h) with normal WBC 10.5 mean?
Mild variation from: Normal. There is slight increase in granulocytes, cells that are involved in acute inflammation. Ifyou had any infection at the time of test, that would explain it. All lab tests need to intepreted in the clinical context. Please see this site for more information. http://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/complete-blood-count-cbc. ...Read more
Should I worry about persistent *relative* lymphocytosis? 3 CBCs in 2 yrs show ~60% lymphs, ~40% neuts (both within absolute ranges, total WBC ~5.5K)
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
Routine CBC, basophils elevated at 2.9%, basophils absolute normal at .1, WBC normal at 5000. Does this mean anything?
Hard to guess: Lab results usually are numbers, and numbers are just numbers, with little meaning unless a doctor takes in the whole picture of what's going on with his patient. If the patient's blood basophil count is slightly higher than the reference range, the ordering doctor may or may not consider the result a problem, depending on the patient's previous results, her symptoms, and her medications. ...Read more
What are the results: Lab results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and your doctor who ordered the test is in the best position to do that. ...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
Hello Doc Im Male Age 18 year Old I Have CBC In My Cbc Report all Things Are Normal Bt In Wbc Flag I Have Imature Cell Left Shift Wat Does It Mean?
Probably nothing: Flags very often mean nothing in the lab. If you feel well, ignore it. It may be the calibration of the machine, you may have Pelger-Huet non-disease, or you may simply be one of the several percent of healthies who fall outside of a particular reference range. Flags go up all the time in lab work so as not to miss things -- most aren't real concerns. ...Read more
Abnormal CBC: Without further details, it is hard to say, but an elevated white count could reflect an infection somewhere. The platelet count interpretation really depends on the number, but if both the white count and the platelets are significantly elevated, it is time to go to a hematologist. ...Read more
My CBC came back indicating slightly elevated WBC and the statement "large platelets present". What does this mean?
Nothing: It is of no clinical significance. Just reporting incidental findings of normal variants. ...Read more
Hi, I need your opinion. My CBC indicates elevated basophils (0.11) and platecount (416). On the otherhand, urinalysis shows WBC 11-25 and RBC 3-5 hpf?
Recheck results: Hi Shariel - Your mildly elevated CBC results may not indicate a medical condition as normal values are based on population averages. I would recommend retesting to see if there is truly an issue. Your urinalysis is concerning for an infection and treatment should be considered. Thankfully your CBC did not indicate the infection had spread into your blood otherwise the neutrophils would be high. ...Read more
Hi! I'm a long-time flonase user. My cbc shows elevated wbc 13.0. I'm seeing my pcp tomorrow. What should I tell her? Thank you!
Elevated WBC: An elevated WBC could be a normal response to a recent viral or bacterial infection. Flonase should have no effect on your white count. Review recent lab work as well as all current medications with PCP at appointment tomorrow. He or she should be able to offer insights into what might have caused elevated wbc. ...Read more
Im a male (29) please adv what a decrease in WBC from 7.1 to 5.8 means. And a change in cbc-lymphocyte 25%, neutorphils 69%, moncytes 6%. Rbc 5.1%, ESR 34
These seem okay: The question is, how do you feel? Labs like these often don't mean anything to a doctor without more information. A decline in white blood cells from 7 to 5 is considered physiologic. The other numbers are normal. At 29, an ESR of 34 is slightly elevated, non-specific & possibly do to a recent infection. If concerned or have symptoms, discuss with your doctor. ...Read more
