I have high levels of neutrophils and low lymphocytes bone aches high blood pressure kidney stones and daily migraines? What could be wrong

I have high levels of neutrophils and low lymphocytes bone aches high blood pressure kidney stones and daily migraines? What could be wrong

Plan for each: You have a variety of symptoms, some of which may be related ... others not. I don't think there is one diagnosis that explains all of your symptoms. You need to work closely with a doctor you have confidence in to diagnose and properly treat all of these. Don't get discouraged .... wonder about smoking with the high neutrophils. If so, this is a good place to start. Good wishes:) ...Read more

I have been getting sick again and again for the past month. My blood test shows high tlc level. 79% neutrophils and 12% lymphocytes level. ?

Recurrent infections: White blood cells, also known as leukocytes, play an important role in the immune system of an individual. They fight infections against foreign organisms and destroy them. When acute infection occurs, TLC will increase. There may be an inbalance of bacteria in the gut leading to a recurrence of getting sick. And overstimulation of the immune system increasing TLC. Probiotics may be helpful. ...Read more

What is absolute neutrophils and what does it mean when mine is high my absolute neutrophils level is high

Neutrophils : Neutrophils are white blood cells that help to fight bacterial infections. The absolute neutrophil count (anc) is used to assess how many neutrophils a person has. A count that is too low can put you at risk for bacterial infections. A high count can indicate that your body is fighting an infection, or can be from an inflammatory injury such as a burn, heart attack or appendicitis. People who do not have a spleen also can have a higher than normal anc. It can even be caused by medications (such as steroids) or stress. Very rarely a high anc can indicate malignancy such as chronic myelogenous leukemia, but people usually have other signs and symptoms, also. Because of this very wide range of high anc causes, the context in which the test was ordered and how high it actually is is very important. If you are worried about your test result, call the doctor that ordered the test and ask what they were looking for and if your high anc is a concern. ...Read more

Repeat the testing: low neutrophils and high lymphocytes can occur with any viral infection, not related to fatty liver as such, blood picture values change several times a day, follow up with your doctor who would be able to judge the whole picture better, good luck ...Read more

Neutrophils 39 (40-74), neutrophils (absolute) 1.3 (1.4-7), high lymphs 50 (14-46), iron sat. 13 (15-55), B12 1962! other levels normal. Causes?

Neutrophils 39 (40-74), neutrophils (absolute) 1.3 (1.4-7), high lymphs 50 (14-46), iron sat. 13 (15-55), B12 1962! other levels normal. Causes?

See below:: 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, you do seem to have iron deficiency, other values are not far from normal. Please consult with your doctor. You may take over the counter iron supplements. ...Read more

What reason could be for a high wbc, abs neutrophils & creatinine levels are high ?

What reason could be for a high wbc, abs neutrophils & creatinine  levels are high ?

They mean...: High WBC with abnormal neutrophils suggests your body is fighting hard for infection for you, and high creatinine indicates impaired kidney working ability now. But how do these numbers hold for the future? That will depend on the result of follow-up clinically along with further tests as needed. So, work with doctor closely. Best wish ... Always. ...Read more

What do low platelet levels mean? Platelet level of 116 low wbc 3.6 low lymphs 61% high neutrophils 22% low neutrophils (absolute) low

What do low platelet levels mean?
Platelet level of 116   low
wbc 3.6     low
lymphs 61%   high
neutrophils 22%   low
neutrophils (absolute) low

Possibilities...: The most common cause is something called viral suppression, where certain viral infections can transiently impair the bone marrow's ability to produce platelets, white blood cells and red blood cells. This will improve on its own as your body clears the infection. Less common, but serious causes include aplastic anemia or leukemia. Watchful waiting is ok if the person does not appear sick. ...Read more

My mvp level is 7.0 (low) my neutrophils 73 (high) and my lymphocytes 20 (low). Can this show a weakened immune system as i've been getting sick a lot?

My mvp level is 7.0 (low) my neutrophils 73 (high) and my lymphocytes 20 (low). Can this show a weakened immune system as i've been getting sick a lot?

Hard to say: The mpv is only slightly below the normal range--it may simply be normal for you. Illness can cause the neutrophil numbers to increase relative to other cells. Thus these counts could be caused by illness, not necessarily the other way around. If still concerned, see an immunologist. They can help determine if your immune system is functioning properly and can answer any further ?S you have. ...Read more
