Elevated Monocytes On Cbc
Elevated total WBC count (11,000) with elevated total neutrophils, lymphocytes and eosinophils. But CRP & SED rate are NORMAL. What causes this?
Any symptoms?: Why was the test done?

Neutrophils 77 slightly out of range but absolute neutrophils normal. Why elevated neutrophil level on the one blood test?
Totally meaningless: If the absolute values are in reference range, ignore it totally. I wish labs wouldn't even report these percentages. And reference ranges themselves are set up so that several percent of healthy people fall outside. A short swim in cold water can triple your neutrophil count. Don't treat labs -- look at people. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have an elevated sedimentation rate, elevated white blood cell count, elevated absolute neutrophils, elevated absolute lymphocytes, & low iron level?
How do you FEEL?: If the white cell values are not extremely out of range, and all are well formed, I would not worry about them. Iron is more worrisome as even without anemia, low values can war of poor nutrition or bleeding from an uncertain or tumor. Nobody here can really tell you much more than that we are glad you are amtaking an active role in understanding your health. ...Read more

How high?: Percentages mean nothing. If your absolute granulocyte count was slightly above the reference range without abnormal forms and you feel well, it means nothing; this fluctuates and a cold shower can double it. ...Read more

Haemoglobin-15.5gm%, total WBC count-7500/cumm, diff WBC count-neutrophils-81%, lymphocytes-11%, eosinophils-8% and ESR -66mm1st hr.So what disease i hv?
2yrs of CBCs show low fluctuating (< reference ranges) on WBC, Platelets, and Ferritin (iron serum norm) and high (13) monocytes. Should I be concerne?
Yes. Here's why.: Reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either side. Counts, especially whites, fluctuate wildly even from hour to hour. While low serum ferritin requires an explanation (are you sure you do not have colon / stomach cancer?), what's most concerning is that your and your personal physician have not chatted about labs despite your interest. Please do it soon. ...Read more
Maybe Infection.: The elevation of neutrophils coukl mean bacterial infection, as these cells are important in fighting this kind of infection. The high hemohlobin seems nonspecific, in abscence of other symptoms and signs. It could possibly mean a polycythemia, one of the porphorias, or a myeloproliferative disorder, which could explain the high neutrophils. It can also be from high altitude. See dr. For more. ...Read more

Work up : Ignore the MCHC. Reference ranges are set so a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end.

Got my 8 month old cbc done which showed 16.9% wbc,75% lymphocytes and 16 percent neutrophils? Rest all normal,low neutrophils? High wbc?
Odd statement: You present information in a format that makes little sense. No lab reports WBC 16.9%, they give a count. Perhaps you need to start over and give more accurate info. These questions are never linked, so you must start over and make any question complete. ...Read more
My cbc results were critical high. MCH high. Mchc low. Lymph low, & monocytes zero for 2 months with taking antibiotics. My WBC 16.0. then 16.5.
Lab Results: Taken alone they don't really mean much. How elevated are they? What are other lab values? What signs and symptoms do you have? You need to ask this of the person that ordered their test. It might just indicate that more lab work needs to be done to determine IF there is anything wrong. Talk to your medical provider! ...Read more
