I had pseudotrophomonas 9 months ago. I now have an elevated immature granulocyte count. I can it lie dormant then return?

Unlikely.: Bacterial infections can linger, but usually if immature granulocytes are present due to infection, you are obviously ill. The more the blood is abnormal, the sicker the patient. If you have no infection signs or symptoms i would be concerned there is another cause of the blood problem. See a hematologist (blood specialist). ...Read more

I have an elevated RDW & also an elevated immature granulocyte count on labs done today. Any need for concern?

Perhaps: A slightly elevated RDW is really no cause for concern. The immature granulocytes (bands) are seen in inflammation, infection, etc. There is usually a reason. ...Read more

Baso absolute in bloodwork is 0.0. Immature granulocytes is 0.0 also. Is this normal? According to my results its in normal range

Normal: Basophils are normally present in very low numbers and not having any is not a disease. A normal person should not have immature granulocytes in peripheral blood. ...Read more

Mpv on blood test is high, 13? Also immature granulocytes are high, 2.2. Should i be concerned?

Symptoms?: Why did you have a CBC checked? The mean platelet volume and immature granulocyte counts being high in of themselves aren't too concerning. Both of these can be high when your bone marrow is ramped up a bit, perhaps do to a previous infection. If your platelet count, hemoglobin and white blood cell counts are close to normal, I am not worried, though i don't if you are having concerning symptoms. ...Read more

I had lab work everything came back within range except thyroperoxidase and immature granulocytes. 389.80 and 0.8.

Thyroid problem: Thyroid peroxidase antibodies are found in autoimmune thyroiditis. It can be acute and fulminant, or quiet and indolent. Either way it can cause problems. See an endocrinologist. There may be other autoimmune problems hidden. For granulocytes at 0.80; get repeat, check stress level, recent infections, injuries. If it rises or does not decline, get check up and find out why. ...Read more

Hi. Just receved these results. Is this cause for alarm? Neutrophil 70.1%, Immature Granulocytes Abs 0.04 k/cu ANC-Neutrophil Absolute  	6.08 K/cu mm?

Lab results: Your doctor should NEVER neglect to discuss all of your lab results with you! Please call her/him and demand that you must be carefully informed of the lab data and what needs to be done! If the doctor is in a private office you are stuck and you must see someone else. If your doctor is working in a hospital you should report the issue to the head doctor. Please let me know how things go. ...Read more

What does a high immature granulocyte count mean if the rest of my WBC are normal?

What does a high immature granulocyte count mean if the rest of my WBC are normal?

It depends: The WBC count normally has mature granulocytic blood cells. If they are immature then we need to know how immature and how many there are(%age). Infections can cause immature granulocytes to show up in blood for a short time period and then normalize. I would ask you to repeat your CBC and WBC and differential count. If the abnormaility persists more than a couple of weeks, see a speicialist. ...Read more

My 12 year old son just had blood work done and has an ABS Immature Granulocytes of 0.04 should I be concerned?

My 12 year old son just had blood work done and has an ABS Immature Granulocytes of 0.04 should I be concerned?

No: 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, immature granulocytes of 0.04, as long as those were not blasts, are not a cause for concern. ...Read more

Immature granulocytes high, 2.2 and mpv high, 13. Went in to see if my thyroid is low. No recent infections. Concerned?

Immature granulocytes high, 2.2 and mpv high, 13. Went in to see if my thyroid is low.  No recent infections. Concerned?

Lab tests: These values have little if any meaning unless you can describe the entire clinical picture. Lab results by themselves seldom have relevant meanings. Discuss with the doctor who ordered these. These values, by the way, are unlikely to have any relationship to whether you are hypothyroid. ...Read more

Monocytes slightly elevated in CBC immature granulocytes at max normal, and my cd 8+ is 3 times the max normal, and has been for 2 years...any ideas?

Monocytes slightly elevated in CBC immature granulocytes at max normal, and my cd 8+ is 3 times the max normal, and has been for 2 years...any ideas?

We need to see your: Need to see your CBC and differential count. If you can send us your complete blood count(CBC) result we can help you sort it out better. Monocyte counts are rarely of any consequence but it all depends on your WBC count and the different types of white cells(called Differential count). ...Read more
