High Wbc Count With Anemia For Three Years
My WBC count and neutrophils have been low for years. Last labs immature gran % and count also low. No known diseases. Any thoughts or suggestions?
Stop worrying: You don't need any immature granulocytes in your blood. Percentages mean nothing whatever -- all that matters is the absolute counts. I wouldn't raise an eyebrow unless the absolute count of granulocytes is under 1500. And some such folks have granulocytes / neutrophils that stick especially well to the walls rather than circulate -- a non-problem. If you feel well, be thankful & relax. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is WBC count 13.500 normal for a 6 year old with myelocytes and activated lymphocytes. High platelets and normal RBC s?
More info needed: More specifics about the CBC are needed. 13, 500 may be a normal white count in a six year old. Finding an occasional myelocyte is not a problem. Activated or stimulated lymphs usually are associated with a viral process. Increased platelets --depending on how high they are could represent an inflammatory process or iron deficiency or other disorder. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My 10 month old has low WBC, Hematocrit, MCV, MCH, MCHC levels and elevated monocytes and absolute monsyte levels. Chronic illness as well.
What causes low lymphocytes and MCV , high neutrophile percentage fluctuating low platelet count for one year ? No bacteria or viral infection detect.
White blood cells: are comprised mostly of neutrophils and lymphocytes. If the number of lymphocytes are low then percentage of neutrophils will naturally be high, even though there numbers are normal. Viral infections (HIV and others) are a common cause of low lymphocyte counts. From a practical standpoint, it may not be necessary to test for the other types of infection if the counts are not dangerously low. ...Read more
Follow up: My own MCV runs a bit low perhaps because i may carry a alpha-thal gene or two. If your daughter is borderline iron-deficient or has beta-thal minor (the two most likely possibilities), her pediatrician can tell you; both are worth knowing. I would draw no conclusion from a high monocyte absolute count or percentage. Thanks for asking. ...Read more

5 year old has persistent normocytic anemia. High WBC, platelets, low RBC and hemoglobin. Normal MCV, MCH, ferritin and reticulocyte. What's the cause?
I've had a low (though not abnormally low) neutrophil count for years, all other counts and WBC normal, no symptoms of leukemia/lymphoma, should I be worried?
No: A neutrophil count in the normal range (albeit at the lower end) is not cause for concern. Rest easy. Any significant illness causing low neutrophils (such as autoimmune antibody-mediated neutropenia) would manifest as recurrent infection and mouth ulcers. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My 17 yearold has WBC 2.5, low segs, high lymph, low mvc, low mch. Normal RBC and hemo and hcrt. Been referred to hemo/onc specialist. Why?
For answers: Your child has some abnormalities in his blood work that your child's doctor can't explain. A hematologist/oncologist is a specialist in blood diseases and is better suited to identify why these abnormalities exist. I would not let it worry you; just go and see what the specialist has to say. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My cbc results were critical high. MCH high. Mchc low. Lymph low, & monocytes zero for 2 months with taking antibiotics. My WBC 16.0. then 16.5.
5 year old with normocytic anemia. Normal reticulocyte and ferritin. High WBC and platelets. Low hemoglobin. What could be the cause?
Sketchy picture: how is your child doing apart from those figures? can be just common iron deficiency anemia, and how high are the platelets or the WBCs? also common to have some elevations with any concurrent infection. If your child is doing fine otherwise, disregard those numbers and trust your doctor, we treat patients not lab results, best wishes for yourself and your child ...Read more
What could cause low MCV and high RDW but normal MCH, hemoglobin, and hematocrit for over a year?
How low?: Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside on either end. If your peripheral smear is unremarkable and the MCV above 70, I'd forget the whole thing. My RDW is always high from donating blood. There are some variants of thalassemia minor that will produce this and puzzle people over a lifetime, though MCH is usually lowish. ...Read more
Would high granulocytes, monocyctes, neutrophils, and low lymphocytes/100cells point towards cancer? Two blood tests in past 2 yrs have these results.
Blood test: To place your test results in a better perspective, discuss them with your provider and/or see a hematologist. Avoid the guessing game. ...Read more
Which one?: Without knowing that, it is difficult to provide a very helpful answer. High platelets can result for a number of different stressors and is not usually cause for alarm. Low platelet levels can be more worrisome, but do not usually warrant any special precautions unless ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
