What does high neutrophils and low lymphocytes in a patient with gastroenteritis and pancreatitis indicate? Could this be a result of an autoimmune condition? On another occasion in the same patient, what about normal neutrophils but low lymphocytes prese
Neutrophils: Both conditions are acute inflammatory conditions and would cause this picture- high neutrophils and low lymphocytes. This is what is known as a left shift and is commonly seen. Although an autoimmune process may be an underlying cause this specific WBC reaction is not an indication of autoimmunity.See 1 more doctor answer

Brat diet for 14 days with viral gastroenteritis is this good? And still do not feel too god maybe because of the lack if nutrients in the diet.
Gastroenteritis: 14 days with gastro? Are you sure of your diagnosis. Usually simple "stomach bugs" don't last that long. My usual recommendation is to push fluids for the first 24 hrs, then when adding food back to follow "BRAT" diet for another 24-48 hrs. I suggest a visit to your doctor for a thorough assessment of what si going on. Good luck!
