Cbc Wbc Count
Diagnosed with pid. Cbc, WBC count and ESR blood tests are normal. Does thismean I do nit have pid? Can PID be misdiagnosed and with what?
PID: You're talking about pelvic inflammatory disease, i hope. This is a local process and that may not necessarily reflect in cbc. Pids can co-exists with normal cbcs. Were you misdiagnosed with it or not, i cannot tell as more history and physical exam is needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My husband is coughing blood in sputum occassionally. Chest xray is normal cbc shows low wbc count which is 3000 my doc says not to worry but concernd?
Hmmm...: I'm always a little concerned about coughing up blood. The low WBC may be from a viral infection which could possibly cause the sputum problem. I would expect that to resolve in 10-14 days. If he still has cough, blood in the sputum I would see the doctor again. Also, it is always reasonable to recheck the WBC in 2-4 weeks to see if it's back to normal. If not, another cause needs to be found ...Read more
I just got my CBC results back. My WBC count was listed as low at 3.9 and neutrophil percentage was listed as low at 48 percent. What could this be?
May be normal: I would not be alarmed by this. Your WBC is not far from normal. Your absolute neutrophil count is within normal limits. I would just repeat it in 6-8 weeks or sooner if you would feel more comfortable. Roughly 6-12% of the population have a low WBC and may be a normal variant. It just needs to be checked again to assess stability. Hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What does it mean in my CBC test if my WBC count is 10.8, mchc is 300, pdw is 15.8 , lymphocytes is 27.2?
Not much: You have a WBC in the range of the upper limit of normal. Have you had a recent infection? None of these values are of concern, and interpretation without the clinical context is problematic. ...Read more
I have been very very fatigued & weak & foggy headed feeling and had a CBC done and my WBC count was 14,000 & my Neutrophils were 10,000. What could be going on?
Get evaluated: Your WBC/neutrophils are slightly elevated. Infection, inflammation, drug (steroid), smoking, or blood conditions, etc can all potentially cause the elevated WBC. It can also be physiological. Without knowing your history and compete CBC (Hb, platetet, etc), it is difficult to narrow the diagnosis. Given that you are experiencing significant fatigue/weakness, I suggest you be evaluated. ...Read more

I have a high WBC count. I'm not sick. I'm redoing CBC tomorrow morning. If still high my knee surgery will be postponed. What can I do?
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
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
Is my dr missing something last 5 cbc in 12 months order. WBC 5.9 ,5.7,,5.1,5.8,4..9 neutr 3.7,3.7,3.7,4.1,3.6 lymphs 1.5,1.2,1.01.0,last 0.8 low.
Those are the same: Those test results are so similar that in real life, they are the same. Since normal people don't do 5 CBC tests in one year, there is something else missing from this picture. If there is nothing else going on, then one should ask, "Why am I going to the lab more than once or twice a year?" And, "What am I looking for when, and if, I do another blood test?" ...Read more
Yes: Chronic sinusits is just that, chronic. One could have this condition and not have a response of raising the white blood cell count. The body is handling the infections on a chronic basis and does not respond by sending out the numbers of white cells to raise the total circulating count. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If your CBC came up normal in all aspects except elevated WBC (14) can I dismiss luekemia as a threat?
Could a cold 1 week before a cbc test effect the wbc//differential counts .Should I wait till cold passes.
Depends: Why are you getting the test? In the usual circumstance, a common cold would not affect the differential measurably at one week after the cold. 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, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
