Elevated Monocytes On Cbc
Monocytes slightly elevated in CBC immature granulocytes at max normal, and my cd 8+ is 3 times the max normal, and has been for 2 years...any ideas?
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. Monocyte counts are rarely of any consequence but it all depends on your WBC count and the different types of white cells(called Differential count). ...Read more
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
Why I have monocytes, absolute elevated if everything else in CBC (includes diff/plc) test is normal?
Probably no reason: The reference range is set so that 5% of healthy folks will test high. I'm going to assume there are no abnormal forms, that you do not have anything to suggest typhoid fever or advancing tuberculosis, and that this is an anomaly found on routine lab work. If so, stop worrying about it. ...Read more
What does an elevated rbc count of 5.93 and Hct of 52.7 indicate in 70 year old male? Only other CBC abnormality is absolute monocytes of 1003.
Polycythemia: Elevated red blood cell parameters are concerning for polycythemia. Polycythemia can be reactive to another condition in the body (like chronically low oxygen) or without other associated medical conditions (polycythemia vera). Absolute monocytosis may be related. It has been noted in scientific literature as also seen in polycythemia vera. ...Read more

Elevated lymphocytes and high monocytes
been telling my gp for months now that I'm always tired, and cold. Cbc shows elevated lymphocytes & 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
My 6 yr old has daily leg pain for 2 months- xrays were normal. Ortho ordered CBC and lyme tests. Monocytes came back elevated. Should I be concerned?
Mgt: I would advise continuing to monitor him for signs of infection or illness with exams and testing. ...Read more
CBC in Jan showed WBC 5, monocytes .40, June now, WBC is 3.8, monocytes slightly elevated said immunologist, debilitating fatigue. What could be prob?
Not enough info: A mildly low white count by itself is not sufficient to give you a cause for the fatigue. ...Read more
Cbc showed elevated WBC level of 16.7k/ul and CSF cell count with diff. Showed lymphocytes @86 and monocytes @14. History of arachnoid cyst what is it?
No: If you're otherwise healthy, a somewhat low absolute monocyte count means nothing. Percentages mean even less. Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside. ...Read more
I just got results from a CBC with auto differential which indicated a high monocyte percentage of 13.5. Should i be concerned?
Lucky you!: If you feel well, you're fine. Be thankful for good health. These cell counts fluctuate wildly from hour to hour. Glad you're health-conscious, and best wishes. ...Read more
My monocyte % is increased at 10.1. Should I be worried all other labs are normal in my cbc with diff panel?
Blood tests: There are a few diseases that leap out from blood tests. Most of the time, however, blood tests don't tell the doctor much on their own. These results fall into the second group, not very specific. A healthy WBC is reassuring. ...Read more
My 13 yr ols son monocytes where high but the eosinophils was low show we be worried nithing else on cbc was abnormal?
Nonspecific ata: Monocytes are basically high class lymphocytes and often elevate with a variety of viral conditions. The data you give is not specific to any issue and not particularly worrisome. No test is as valuable as combining it with the history and exam to come up with an answer. ...Read more
Male 26. Did routine cbc. Esr is 55. Monocyte is 0. Is this problematic? In which cases can ESR and monocyte alert a problem? Thank you
Lab error: The monocytes almost never disappear with the rest of the white cells normal & the person apparently healthy. If the lab counted 100 white cells, dumb luck could have missed a monocyte. If this is a computerized count, suspect instrument error. Stop worrying. I'd also ignore the "high sed rate" unless you have reason to think you are actually sick. Focus on yourself, not these numbers. ...Read more
Male, age 23,Indian. On a Blood Test(CBC) all components are within Normal Range except for "MONOCYTES which are 01%". Anything to worry??
No: Certain bone marrow abnormalities & large number of infections have been associated with monocytosis including brucellosis, varicella-zoster, bacterial endocarditis, tuberculosis, malaria, typhoid fever, syphilis, and trypanosomiasis. An abnormal WBC & other cell count are associated with these conditions. An isolated increase monocyte count is non-specific finding without any significance ...Read more
I'm 32 male, I had a CBC test and the "Differential Leucocytic Count" was normal except (Monocytes 10.5%) is it an indicator to something serious?
Don't panic: Monocytes are a type of white blood cell found in the differential of a white blood cell count. Your level is just barely outside the upper range of normal and thus I would not be too worried that it is something extremely serious. Things like stress, inflammation, or fighting off some kind of infection can cause this to be increased at times. With yours not being that high, just watch, don't panic ...Read more
I just had my CBC with Differential done and everything is in normal range except my Monocytes/100 Leukocytes is high at 11.6. What could this mean?
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 result are not anything to be concerned about.
