High Grancocyte Low Wbc
I posted this two weeks ago!!!!! Sepermogram: wbc: 5-7/hpf How high or low is it? Normal? If not what could it be?
WBC at low this year 18.8 and High 26.7 My question is no matter what it is my percent is normal and the count is high equally. Why is this?

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, it would have helped if you had provided the actual values.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

Many, many things: The list is too long to list here, and it depends on the patient's individual circumstances. In younger patients, it is usually related to some transient infection. In older adults, it needs a more dedicated work up. A trained hematologist can sort this out in 2 visits, with some standard testing, including a review of the blood under the microscope. ...Read more
Depends!: The low MPV does not usually have any significant importance. I tend to ignore it most of the time. The slightly elevated WBC can be due to many things such as infection, inflammation, medications, stress, autoimmune disorders, other disorders and in rare occasions blood disorders such as leukemia. It has to be put in the context of history, examination and other laboratory values. ...Read more

Recheck in 6 -12 wk: Start with what you had that make your doctor check the wbc. The most common cause of slightly low WBC with a high proportion of lymphs is a viral illness (which causes the neutrophils to drop). So, as long as your other counts are okay, just wait and recheck in 6-12 weeks. Your doctor likely checked to make sure your WBC was not elevated (often caused by bacterial infection) to be safe. ...Read more
Concerning: The absolute neutrophil count of around 700 is very worrisome and unless your physician already knows the cause, a work up is in order. If you are taking any meds, even "natural herbal" stuff (which may not be what it is supposed to be), consider stopping. ...Read more
Low WBC: Iall depends on your associated medical issues or any medications your are taking. Could be benign or somthing more significant. Needs further evaluation. ...Read more
Low neutrophils: Your white count is low because your absolute neutrophil (granulocyte) count is low. I am trusting you do not have lupus or a big spleen from liver disease, rheumatoid arthritis or gaucher's. Some folks' neutrohils don't get counted by machines -- looking at the smear helps. You list no meds to cause it. Some folks, especially of african descent, have a harmless hereditary low neutrophil count. ...Read more
WBC: That means your white blood cell is low and your lymphocyte is high- that means you should have further work-up. In many cases- viral infection is the culprit- however other things like autoimmune disease as well as certain type of chronic leukemia i.E chronic lymphocytic leukemia can also give you the same presentation. Follow up with your doctor. ...Read more
Bone marrow disease: Reduction in the red blood cells and the white cells means there is a problem in the bone marrow production or increased destruction in the spleen and liver. Bone marrow could be affected by drugs such as chemotherapy or immunosuppressive drugs or reduction in Folic Acid levels or infiltration of the bone marrow by leukemic cells or lymphoma cells or infiltration by fibrous tissue as in myelofibro. ...Read more
How high on WBC?: A high rbc and low MCH can be thallesemia trait. Do yo know the actual numbers? ...Read more
Speed of rise varies: When a sudden jump occurs in the white count, it suggests acute inflammation like appendicitis. There will be a higher than normal lymphocyte count and many young lymphocytes called 'bands' seen in the differential. If the WBC climbs slowly, then there is not as many young immature wbc' seen in circulation. ...Read more
Numbers aren't: That bad--see pcp or hematologist.Get a more detailed answer ›
Wbc high 17.8, absolute grans high 14.30, granulocytes high 80.4, lymph low 16.0. What does this mean?
Bacterial infection?: Most people with WBC counts like this have a bacterial infection of some sort. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more
What does it mean if your WBC is low and your lymphs are high and neutrophils are low what does this mean?
Ask your doctor to e:
Your doctor is expected to explain what numbers of wmc/neutrophils you have and what it means. I would need to know the actual numbers to be able to interpret this information in your case. Get to know what is normal and what is low and how low it is?
Normal WBC count is between 4, 000 to 10, 000 and about half of these numbers should be neutrophils. What are your numbers? ...Read more

Near normal: 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 blood counts are near normal and not the likely cause of your symptoms. Why did you have these tests done? ...Read more
High Lymphocytes at 47.5 (range 18-42) and Low Segments at 42.5 (range 50-70). What does it mean? Should I be worried? WBC is 5.7 (range 4-10.50)
Ok: Slight variations in the percent of lymphocytes and segment of white cells are normal and not unusual if there within 10% of the normal range just check with your physician who w ordered just to be sure ...Read more
Glucose is 64mg/dL, wbc 3.7 Thousand/uL, RDW 16.0% is my most recent bloodwork. Says glucose is low, wbc is low & RDW is high? What does this mean?
Usually: Leukemia is by definition a primary tumor of the blood-forming elements. If the cancer remains confined to the bone marrow, and the abnormal cells do not enter the blood ("aleukemic"), then the white count is often low because healthy cells are crowded out of the marrow. If the abnormal cells do spill over, the count is often high. The key is often that the cells look abnormal. ...Read more
My WBC is high, my neutrophil absolute is high and my neutrophil% is high, and my monocytes are low?

What is possible if your WBC, neutrophil absolute, and neutrophil % is high, and lumphocytes are low?
Usually benign: There are many causes for an increased white count and increased neutrophils, but the most common is an infection. The more concerning causes for increased WBC are ususally associated with other blood cell abnormalities, such as immature or abnormal-looking WBCs. If the WBC is very high, it should be rechecked to make sure it goes back down to normal. ...Read more
What does it mean if my MPV is always elevated and WBC are always low? RDW is occasionally elevated but not often.
MPV=mean platelet value. Largely meaningless in most patients.
WBC=white blood cell count composed of several different cell types that respond differently, thus rising or falling variably according to the stimulus
RDW=red cell distribution width, a measure of how variable red cell sizes are, again not specific but sometimes useful if you are anemic. ...Read more
