High WBC with High Granulocytes Low Lymphocytes and Low CO2 and low Cloride with high glucose Should I have additional testing for anything specific?

High WBC with High Granulocytes Low Lymphocytes and Low CO2 and low Cloride with high glucose

Should I have additional testing for anything specific?

Diabetes? Other(s)?: Can't help much with only this information. Elevated glucose suggests diabetes. Otherwise, such test results could indicate dozens of problems, perhaps no single illness. The likely explations will depend on symptoms, physical exam, and probably X-rays or any number of other tests. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

What would high lymphocytes and low granulocytes indicate?

Probably nothing: Are you talking percents or absolute numbers? Is the total WBC count normal? It is not uncommon or significant to have a high lymph percent and low neut percent. ...Read more

What does high neutrophil & low lymphocyte count mean?

It depends: One cannot look just at lynphocyte and neutrophil percentages. It must be interpreted in the context of the total white blood cell count. ...Read more

Does high neutrophil and low lymphocyte point to leukemia or lymphoma?

Does high neutrophil and low lymphocyte point to leukemia or lymphoma?

No: Anyone who told you to worry about the minor fluctuations in your white count did you a serious disservice. Please forgive my frankness. Leukemia will announce itself by very abnormal cells in your blood. Lymphoma is a mass or obvious illness. At age 18, focus on learning, career, becoming a tough adult and be thankful for good health. Study the real science, not the scare stuff. ...Read more

High neutrophil count(61) and low lymphocyte count (30) for 6 years old boy?

High neutrophil count(61) and low lymphocyte count (30) for 6 years old boy?

CBC: You don't tell the total white blood cell count (WBC), but these numbers are generally indicative of a bacterial infection or an early viral infection. Knowing the symptoms and the rest of the blood count would be more helpful. :) ...Read more

Sir. What drug can I take if my differential count in CBC is abnormal, my lymphocyte is low and my neutrophil is high. Thanks.?

Sir. What drug can I take if my differential count in CBC is abnormal, my lymphocyte is low and my neutrophil is high. Thanks.?

No drug: Sometimes, abnormal CBC differential can be a variation. If CBC differential is truely abnormal, we need to find out what the underlying causes are. Is it due to infection, inflammation or other blood conditions? Once we know the causes, we can treat them accordingly as indicated. No drug to treat numbers, and never treat numbers, TREAT PATIENTS. ...Read more

My neutrophil and monocyte are slightly low and lymphocyte is slightly high. What could it mean? Segmented neutrophil: 34.70, lymphocyte: 59; RDW: 15

Means nothing: These fluctuate wildly hour-to-hour. Unless they are way out of reference range, they mean nothing as long as all the cells appear basically normal. ...Read more

%lymphocytes is high (52%) and %immature granulocytes is low (38%) but rest of CBC is normal — should I be concerned? I am 65 y/o female.

%lymphocytes is high (52%) and %immature granulocytes is low (38%) but rest of CBC is normal — should I be concerned?  I am 65 y/o female.

Possibly but: But only if this is a persistent finding since the profile is also compatible with a current viral infection. I would repeat the test in a month. If the finding is similar, then you need to talk to your doctor re. whether a hematology consult is needed. It would have been more informative if you had given us the actual WBC count instead of just a %. ...Read more

Hello my son has low granulocytes and high lymphocytes, plus High red blood count and high pottasium. His IGE is also high. That does this indicate?

Hello my son has low granulocytes and high lymphocytes, plus High red blood count and high pottasium. His IGE is also high. That does this indicate?

Hard to say: To get the most from this site, we need you to provide background information like symptoms/duration/age. When you cite lab values we need to know why it was obtained. This is not a chat room & your questions are never linked. From what you provided this may be normal for the situation or a simple lab variation/error. ...Read more

Is this important in the clinical pic of upper ab pain and fatty stools? High Neutrophils High Monocytes Low Lymphocyte High Immature Granulocytes (3)

Is this important in the clinical pic of upper ab pain and fatty stools?
High Neutrophils
High Monocytes
Low Lymphocyte
High Immature Granulocytes (3)

Blood test results: Upper abdominal pain and fatty stools may be due to gall bladder disease. High neutrophils and monocytes, low lymphocytes and high immature granulocytes may not mean that much in the context of your symptoms, but may be consistent with an infection. You should ask your doctor for more guidance. ...Read more

My Recent blood Smear showed Slight "Polychromasia"; CBC is normal except: Low Granulocytes & High Lymphocytes. (Last 2 Years showed: Poikilocytosis & Mild Neutropenia). Not Anemic. Possible Causes of this Polychromasia? Should this be checked into?

My Recent blood Smear showed Slight "Polychromasia"; CBC is normal except: Low Granulocytes & High Lymphocytes. (Last 2 Years showed: Poikilocytosis & Mild Neutropenia). Not Anemic. Possible Causes of this Polychromasia? Should this be checked into?

Any symptoms?: Why was the test done? 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. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, nothing in the information you provided warrants any concern.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

Cbc: You didn't give the total white blood count but for me this signifies either and early viral infection or a low greade bacterial infection. The RDW and mpv are red blood cell indices and are inconsequential as related to this infection ...Read more

High neutrophil (90) and low lymphocytes during my 7 month of pregnancy what does it mean? Do I need to worry?

High neutrophil (90) and low lymphocytes during my 7 month of pregnancy what does it mean? Do I need to worry?

Do not worry: Normal pregnancy is associated with a rise in the percentage of neutrophils (and thus a decreased percentage of lymphocytes). Since your neutrophilia has been present throughout your pregnancy it is most likely physiologic. One must wonder about an infectious cause and if you have been having fever or signs of a urinary tract infection, please see your obstetrician. If not, relax. ...Read more

I am wondering what having a high % neutrophil count with a low % lymphocyte count means as every time I have a CBC done it shows this.

Absolute counts?: If both the absolute neutrophil count and the absolute lymphocyte count are within normal range, simply forget about it. It's you. Trust you are HIV negative. If the absolute lymphocyte count is below 1000, or the absolute neutrophil count consistently above 10000, a hematology consult might be in order. Glad you are proactive; best wishes. ...Read more

Neutrophil % high at 76.2% along w/ high neut. Absolute at 7.0, lymphocyte % low at 16.5% -- all other bloodwork (cbc) normal. What could this be?

Likely nothing to ..: Worry about if you are otherwise feeling well. Your total WBC count, based on the data you provide, is within the normal range. The modest left shift (ie., relative increased neutrophil %) could indicate an effort to address a mild bacterial infection. But more likely it's just normal variation. I do wonder what prompted the check to begin with? Additional details? ...Read more

What does a high neutrophil count & low lymphocytes & monocytes indicate? Neutrophil %(76(. Anc(3.42), absolute lymph(0.95), absolute mono(0.05)

What does a high neutrophil count & low lymphocytes & monocytes indicate?  Neutrophil %(76(. Anc(3.42), absolute lymph(0.95), absolute mono(0.05)

Probably nothing: Most adults have an absolute lymphocyte count of 1.6 x 10^3 or more, but it fluctuates chaotically. The stress of minor illness can drop it briefly in the absence of any other problem. Your physician can advise you depending on your health otherwise and may choose no follow-up. Everyone is wise to be checked occasionally for hiv. ...Read more

What could a low WBC 2.5 (4 normal), high monocytes 17 (normal below 12), low lymphocyte, low abs neutrophil,, low abs lymphocyte be? I'm worried.

What could a low WBC 2.5 (4 normal), high monocytes 17 (normal below 12), low lymphocyte, low abs neutrophil,, low abs lymphocyte be?  I'm worried.

Your CBC: It's good that you're interested in your bloodwork, and nobody here can diagnose you or even say whether illness is present without more data, beginning with "How do you feel?" WBC absolute counts fluctuate wildly even from hour to hour. The best course may just be to repeat the count. Absolute neuts &/or lymphs below 1000 are worrisome but there's no danger until much lower levels. ...Read more

There is a differenc: If the 42.3 and 38.2 are percents of your total white blood cell (WBC) count they're fine. What did your board certified allergist tell you? If you didn't see one that's why you should have. Doing or ordering a test is technical, appropriate interpretation, explanation, and treatment is the extensively taught, practiced and honed skill of a specialist. ...Read more

What would cause high neutrophil count and low lymphocyte count with a total wbc of 8? Is it cancer?!

No it is Not Cancer!: A WBC count of 8, made of neutrophils can not be cancer related. So you should not think about Cancer that much. If you feel well, you should ignore this report. If you want a more exact answer, then you need to send us the complete report of the numbers of cell in your CBC. ...Read more
