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

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

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'm worried that I have leukemia.I had blood work done and got a call back to discuss the results.My doctor said my immature granulocytes were high.

You may: More likely you have had some minor infection or stress or the lab is using one of these new counters that picks up the immature cells more readily. Do follow up. If this is leukemia, it's probably one of the manageable ones. Be brave, and best wishes. ...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

Is this important in the clinical pic of upper ab pain and fatty stools? High Neutrophils High Monocytes Low Lymphocyte High Immature Granulocytes (3)

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

Recently diagnose with prostate cancer Tic, gleason 7(3+4), PSA 4.97 Had some labs done. Absolute lymphocyte 4.3(High), immature granulocyte .5(High). Other labs normal. What does this mean?

Recently diagnose with prostate cancer Tic, gleason 7(3+4), PSA 4.97

Review with your doc: Your urologist will review this in detail and consider your surgical options with you. Please get on his treatment plan and this will help avoid future worsening of this disease and as well give you peace of mind. There are many labs followed and checked prior to surgery and other treatments. They get compared to your previous baseline levels. Your doctor will explain this regarding your case. ...Read more

24w pregnant. Blood work shows Granulocytes immature little high, cut off 0.2 and mine is 0.2. WBC and neutrophils high too Normal during pregnancy?

24w pregnant. Blood work shows Granulocytes immature little high, cut off 0.2 and mine is 0.2. WBC and neutrophils high too Normal during pregnancy?

Yes: White blood cell counts are normally higher than usual during pregnancy. You did not give the actual numbers. 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, I do not see any reason for concern. ...Read more

%lymphocytes is high (52%) and %immature granulocytes is low (38%) but rest of CBC is normal - should I be concerned? I am 65 y/o female.

%lymphocytes is high (52%) and %immature granulocytes is low (38%) but rest of CBC is normal - should I be concerned?  I am 65 y/o female.

Possibly but: but only if this is a persistent finding since the profile is also compatible with a current viral infection. I would repeat the test in a month. If the finding is similar , then you need to talk to your doctor re. whether a hematology consult is needed. It would have been more informative if you had given us the actual WBC count instead of just a %. ...Read more

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

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
