What could cause my mono and lymph % to be elevated on cbc?

What could cause my mono and lymph % to be elevated on cbc?

Lowish neuts, maybe?: Percentages don't give much useful information, and absolute white cells counts are of importance if and only if they're considerably away from the reference range, which is set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside. Many folks simply run low-neutrophils for a lifetime without a problem. How do you FEEL? ...Read more

We need to see your: Need to see your CBC and differential count. If you can send us your complete blood count(CBC) result we can help you sort it out better.

Ana+ spec 1:640 elevated sed. Cbc ok. Metabolic ok. Urine ok. Up back pain and rt flank burning/pain present one year. Throastic MRI ok.  Lupus neg.

ANA and pain: Not sure if the 2 are related, but surely merit investigation. I would look into liver function tests, autoimmune antibodies to bile ducts and liver imaging if other work up is negative. ...Read more

Wbc count elevated past 5 cbcs now dr says seeing a different type of WBC waiting on a hemotologist to come see me , what schould i expect to hear ?

A working diagnosis: Whether you have a low-grade leukemia or other myeloproliferative / myelodysplastic syndrome. Many of these require no treatment and/or can be managed fairly easily. Since you are clever enough to have found healthtap, you will want to learn about your test results -- there will probably be a lot of gene studies and you'll be getting an education. Best wishes. ...Read more

Ana+w/speck pat. 1:640. Sed rate elevated CRP ok. Cbc and metabolic and urine ok. Up back pain. Fatigue. Right flank pain. Lupus panel negatiive. ?

Ana+w/speck pat. 1:640. Sed rate elevated  CRP ok. Cbc and metabolic and urine ok. Up back pain. Fatigue. Right flank pain. Lupus panel negatiive. ?

Not lupus!: The elevated sed rate is less important than a normal crp. The ANA is not important, since it appears to be false positive. Many things can increase the esr, including diabetes, metabolic syndrome, female hormones:all increase serum fibrinogen! also, connective tissue diseases rarely cause back pain. I believe you have a back problem unrelated to these tests. See someone in rheumatology or ortho! ...Read more

Slightly elevated MCHC but normal CBC. Liver enzymes slightly elevated....thoughts ?

Slightly elevated MCHC but normal CBC. Liver enzymes slightly elevated....thoughts ?

Work up : Ignore the MCHC. Reference ranges are set so a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. Your physician will probably have you repeat the liver enzymes after two weeks off alcohol and meds, or perhaps proceed to a search for possible hepatitis, hemochromatosis, Wilson etc ...Read more

Elevated lymphocytes and high monocytes

The first question: Is are the elevations on a percentage basis, or a rise in absolute numbers. Mononucleosis can cause this, but with chronic fatigue i assume yo have been tested for that. If you are concerned an opinion from a hematologist may be helpful. ...Read more
