How high?: You should talk to the doctor who ordered the test for your blood cell counts, as s/he knows more about your health and all lab results need to be interpreted in the clinical context.
For 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.

Little bit high neutrophils and low lymphocytes and zero eosinophil. Is there anything serious because all my tests are normal and my tlc is normal?

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

Is is normal to have high neutrophils and low lymphocytes when having a food poisoning?

Is is normal to have high neutrophils and low lymphocytes when having a food poisoning?

Probably: True food poisoning is a short lived event. Your body reacts acutely to things like that by increasing neutrophils. Lymphocytes respond more slowly. Lower than normal total lymphocyte levels would be from something else. Neither of those findings are diagnostic and it's hard to tell without actually knowing the real numbers you have. ...Read more

Hi my son who is 5 has had chronic hives for 7 months high neutrophils and low lymphocytes only allergy is to my in meds no one seems to know why?

Chronic urticaria: Hives lasting longer than 6 wks is known as chronic urticaria, often has no known environmental or food relationship. In most cases, there are no known allergen triggers, but can be brought on by some things like heat, stress, lack of sleep, etc. Rarely due to an underlying condition. Treat with oral antihistamines.

What does high neutrophils and low lymphocytes in a patient with gastroenteritis and pancreatitis indicate? Could this be a result of an autoimmune condition? On another occasion in the same patient, what about normal neutrophils but low lymphocytes prese

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

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 neutrophils with low lymphocytes and left upper quadrant pain. What should I do?

High neutrophils with low lymphocytes and left upper quadrant pain. What should I do?

Infection?: As you don't give any numbers or tell how long you have had pain it is hard to answer the question. If the WBC count is really high you may have an acute infection. Without more information the probability of this can't be assessed. As you must have seen a physician to get the blood count ordered, ask him/her for follow-up. ...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)

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

Can a elevated WBC (14.1) high neutrophils (69%) low lymphocytes (23%) & large lymph nodes indicate cancer?

Can a elevated WBC (14.1) high neutrophils (69%) low lymphocytes (23%) & large lymph nodes indicate cancer?

Possible, but...: Without knowing more specifics of how the patient is doing clinically as well as the results of other blood tests (like the rest of the cbc), infection would be more likely with this picture (especially the elevated neutrophils). There are definitely other tests that could be performed if cancer was more of a concern, if this was warranted. ...Read more
