Took a blood test WBC 14.5, SGPT, 96,Co2, high.MONO .09 GRAN high please help?

Wha???: Numbers, numbers,numbers. You need you know the reference ranges of the lab that did the tests. You need to know why the tests were done and how they relate to prior tests, if any. Those numbers on their face don't bother me too much, but that's not really saying too much either. What bothers me is that you didn't ask the doctor who ordered them. So, your mission is clear..... ...Read more

Blood test results. Lym% 44 gran% 48.4 what does this mean? 25year old female

Nothing: Labs mean nothing whatever in the absence of a clinical history and physical exam.

Can you still take a blood test if you have eaten?

Can you still take a blood test if you have eaten?

Blood tests & eating: Only a few blood tests require that you be fasting--most particularly tests for sugar (glucose) and a lipid panel (because the triglycerides go very high after eating. Most other tests do not require a fasting state--including electrolytes, thyroid tests, liver tests, total cholesterol & HDL cholesterol, kidney function, and blood counts. ...Read more
