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.?
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

Neutrophils 77 slightly out of range but absolute neutrophils normal. Why elevated neutrophil level on the one blood test?
Totally meaningless: If the absolute values are in reference range, ignore it totally. I wish labs wouldn't even report these percentages. And reference ranges themselves are set up so that several percent of healthy people fall outside. A short swim in cold water can triple your neutrophil count. Don't treat labs -- look at people. ...Read more

What does high white blood cells, high neutrophils and low lymphocytes indicate? Absolute levels and all others are normal
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

Hard to say: Any lab result gives a number that is compared to a range of normal. But even the extremes of "too high" can still be normal for an individual. If the result is a change, then a high neutrophil count makes me think of infection (since that is one of the bodies responses), inflammation, stress, reaction to medication or even cancer like leukemia. Talk with provider who ordered test to put in context. ...Read more

Relative v.absolute?: The percentages can be misleading. One must really look at the absolute amounts of both. Depending on the circumstances, a true absolute neutrophilia may be caused by a list of conditions too long to list here. In most cases, the low monocyte count is due to the relative expansion of neutrophils (infections, smoking, trauma, autoimmune conditions, even some cancers). Your md should be able to help. ...Read more
