Not meaningful: Your immature granulocyte is low enough to be in the normal range. Please note that all laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and that is why it is important to consult a doctor about your health issues, selection and interpretation of lab tests. ...Read more

Nope: The total WBC is important to know for sure, but this percentage is unlikey to be of any consequence. ...Read more

Nothing: Labs mean nothing whatever in the absence of a clinical history and physical exam. Especially, relative percentages of lymphocytes and granulocytes is junk data that, frankly, i wish the labs wouldn't even report. The absolute counts of both lymps and monocytes fluctuate wildly hour by hour, and i'd draw no conclusion. I hope some other finding will reveal the true cause of your chronic fatigue. ...Read more

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

Time for a visit: The site is not designed to diagnose and treat patients.Although we often address broad questions and comment on a variety of health issues.That fact is at the bottom of every site page. Your lab is odd, but without having a proper history, physical exam and the other parts of an evaluation, I can only suggest you discuss it all with your doc at a scheduled office visit. ...Read more

Could I have a blood test done for everything?

No: Because many illnesses are not diagnosable by bloodwork, and there are a host of genetic illnesses for which the labs are very expensive and are a waste of money if there's no reason to suspect the illness is present. ...Read more

It can: but only if the lab order is to check the level. When we order blood tests we specify exactly what we want the lab to check. It's not just a random set of tests. ...Read more
