Finally went to dr, acute hep bas metabolic pan, CBC w auto diff h pylori hepatic fun lipid sed rate T4 thyroid all normal, vitd low should I worry?
Not really...: C. Difficile, when pathologic, is a bacterial infection and as such warrants specialized antibiotic treatment with documentation of eradication following such appropriate therapy. That being said, a special probiotic (florastor = sacchromyces boulardes) can help inhibit growth of c.Diff, can help reduce recurrence in at risk populations, and may possibly prophylax against c.Diff infection. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Cbc shows lympho 18.4% and esr of 42.have low grade fever sonce 2 weeks with fatigue and body pain.neg blood culture typhoid ebv and tsh.which virus?
More info needed: The lymphocyte count is normal or close to it (depending to some extent on what your total white blood cell count is). However, 42 is quite a high ESR. The causes you list are possible, but there probably are a hundred other health conditions that could do this. You haven't provided nearly enough information to even guess. Keep working with your doctor. Good luck! ...Read more

Could u have swollen lymph nodes if your cbc, CBC with differential, esr, and CRP all came back normal?
Yes you can: CBC etc only rise if there is a serious infection. But lymph nodes can enlarge for many different reasons, infections being one of the common causes. Most infections in the throat commonly affect the lymph nodes but are often not associated with high blood counts. If they are continuing to increase in size, then you should get checked by your doctor. ...Read more
CBC done in Jan, and WBC was 3.7 and neutrophils 1.8. Repeat CBC May and WBC is 3.3 and neutrophils 1.6. All other values normal. No symptoms. Am I ok?
See below: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your WBC count is lower than normal, though, not dangerously low. You should discuss it with your doctor at the next visit. 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. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. 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, if you have sex. ...Read more
Possibly: An active viral infection such as acute hepatitis c could raise your lymphocyte count. It would not lower your platelets unless you had cirrhosis which would imply long standing hepatitis c. Therefore, it's unlikely that the two abnormalities are related but it's not impossible either. ...Read more

High monocyte %, manual count in toddler. All other results on CBC normal, mono CT 16. Cause for concern?
Not necessarily: The monocytes are often up some in a variety of viral illnesses but less commonly than the lymphocytes. Infectious mononucleosis does occur in a muted ( less intense) form in toddlers & the usual mono blood test can be negative until months after the illness has passed. If the kid is cruising around enjoying life i would ignore the test & get back to living. ...Read more

Low WBC, low abs neurophils, and low anion gap w/o K. All other results of CMP and CBC w/diff. normal. Cause for concern?
Why tested?: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, it would have helped to have the actual values rather than your interpretation of low and high. It would be better to discuss it with the doctor who ordered the tests as s/he knows more about your health. 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. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.
