High neutrophils and low lymphocytes and other problems indicate what?

Depends: Numbers that are near the upper or lower limits of normal are generally normal, and you have to see if there is a pattern over time. In general, very high neutrophils are seen in 3 conditions- bacterial infections, some high physical stress states, and receiving steroids. Also depends if very immature white cells are seen in the blood as well - this usually means serious bacterial infection. ...Read more

Plz ask your doctor!: There are dozens of possible explanations for this. You obviously went to a provider and had a blood count done, because you have the results. You provider had an idea what might be going on; that's why he ordered it. So, your best move now is to speak to your provider; he or she will have a much better idea than any of us what these results might mean! ...Read more

Diarrhea/fever,,: Your lab values are fine and you're likely fine, but you've got diarrhea and fever and there must be some reason for why that is. Unless it goes away or there is an obvious reason for it, it might be wise to see your doctor for some tests on your stool to find out why. It still may not be anything serious as your neutrophil and eosinophil count aren't high at all. Good luck. ...Read more

Neutrophils: Both conditions are acute inflammatory conditions and would cause this picture- high neutrophils and low lymphocytes. This is what is known as a left shift and is commonly seen. Although an autoimmune process may be an underlying cause this specific WBC reaction is not an indication of autoimmunity. ...Read more
