High neutrophils, low monocytes, low lymphocytes, normal basophils, normal eosinophils what could be the reason? Can this indicate teniasis?

High neutrophils, low monocytes, low lymphocytes, normal basophils, normal eosinophils what could be the reason? Can this indicate teniasis?

Not likely: It would help to have the actual values. However, a normal blood count does not rule out teniasis. It would be better to examine a stool sample for segments or eggs. ...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)

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

What would would cause these results? High total bilirubin 1.2, low alkaline phosphates 38, low RBC 3.99, high neutrophils% 81.5, low monocytes% 3.2

What would would cause these results? High total bilirubin 1.2, low alkaline phosphates 38, low RBC 3.99, high neutrophils% 81.5, low monocytes% 3.2

Not enough info.: It's impossible to analyze isolated lab tests without having the results of all of the tests and an understanding of the patient's medical history, current symptoms, and physical exam results. Although the results don't seem alarming to me, you should discuss them with your doctor. As an alternative, you could upload them to HealthTap Prime and discuss the results with a doctor here. Good luck. ...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 does it mean if I have high wbc count, high segmented neutrophils, low lymphocytes, high neutrophils, low lymphocytes, high monocytes?

What does it mean if I have high wbc count, high segmented neutrophils, low lymphocytes, high neutrophils, low lymphocytes, high monocytes?

Nothing by itself: I'm a pathologist with a life devoted to lab testing and the mysteries of diagnosis. These results mean nothing apart from a human being and her health history & physical exam. These could be my labs after my first open-water swim of the season while it's still chilly. Reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside. How do you FEEL? I suggest you relax & ignore this. ...Read more

Causes? High total bilirubin 1.2, low alkaline phosphates 38, low RBC 3.99, high neutrophils% 81.5, low monocytes% 3.2. 25 girl otherwise healthy.

Not concerning: If all other labs are normal, including normal Hgb, normal WBC, normal liver function test, there is no concern for these mildly abnormal labs. You have to put together the whole picture so if you have no symptoms, I would not worry at all. ...Read more

Pediatric cancer? Low RBC, low WBC, low platelets, low IGM, high MCV, low neutrophils, low monocytes and low eosinophils, occasional myelocytes,

Pediatric cancer? Low RBC, low WBC, low platelets, low IGM, high MCV, low neutrophils, low monocytes and low eosinophils, occasional myelocytes,

Tough set of labs: Suppression of multiple cell lines certainly is a concerning finding on a CBC. Yes, there are pediatric cancers that may present with this type of blood test results. Talking to your heme/onc specialist as soon as possible would be advisable! But don't jump to conclusions because a specialist with the "whole picture" may give you a very surprising answer! ...Read more

If WBC is high does that mean neutrophils monocytes and lymphocytes will be high too?

If WBC is high does that mean neutrophils monocytes and lymphocytes will be high too?

Not at all: Usually a high white count is due either to high neutrophils alone, or less often high lymphs alone. Do yourself a favor -- don't even look at your CBC unless you have a specialty interest. It's only one piece in the complex puzzle of diagnosis; little abnormalities seldom mean anything at all, and your physician has already taken the big abnormalities into account. ...Read more

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

Need more info: Lab results without a clinical history and exam are very difficult to interpret. Generally, however, elevated neutrophils with high WBC counts are seen in bacterial infection, but may also occur in patients on steroids, those with a variety of inflammatory conditions and so on. ...Read more

What does it mean if my monocytes are low and neutrophils are high?

What does it mean if my monocytes are low and neutrophils are high?

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

What do low lymphocyte, monocytes, and high neutrophils mean?

Need actual results: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the test is usually in the best position to do that. You did not provide the actual values, so it is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion. ...Read more

I have low monocytes, lymphocytes, and high neutrophils. What should I do?

Big picture: If these are percentages, don't even pay attention. Don't worry about monocytes unless you are obviously seriously sick. If absolute lymphs are above 1000, or if total neutrophils below around 15000 without abnormal forms (many bands, toxic granulation) chances are it means nothing especially if you're not otherwise ill. Your physician knows how to interpret these. ...Read more

My one year old has high monocytes (1.8 absolute) and low neutrophils (0.5 absolute) could this be an indication of leukemia?

My one year old has high monocytes (1.8 absolute) and low neutrophils (0.5 absolute) could this be an indication of leukemia?

Probably not: At this age, the most likely cause for neutropenia (low neutrophils) accompanied by mild absolute monocytosis (normal is about 1) is an infection, most commonly viral. Consulting with your pediatrician is recommended. ...Read more

In blood test. Neutrophils low. Lymphs high Monocytes high. But only reading high on absolute was Granulocytes and Neutrophils. Cause for concern?

How high?: Percentages mean nothing. If your absolute granulocyte count was slightly above the reference range without abnormal forms and you feel well, it means nothing; this fluctuates and a cold shower can double it. ...Read more

Need for evaluation: 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, your test results suggest chronic inflammation, but it is not feasible to be specific without more history, physical examination, maybe imaging studies and additional tests.

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
