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

Usually not much: You do best to ignore the percentages that the lab reports. If you feel well and the absolute neutrophil count and the absolute lymphocyte count are within or fairly close to the lab's reference range (which includes most but by no means all healthies), stop worrying. Low lymphs usually means stress. I trust you know yourself to be hiv-negative. Best wishes. ...Read more
Infection.: Depends on relative proportions, but in general without symptoms this is sometimes a big nothing. Could potentially be an infection, but you would very likely be aware of it through some other means such as pain, etc. ...Read more
3 months ago I had an appendectomy for appendicitis. Wbc had low lymphocytes and high neutrophils. Should I ask for the blood test to be repeated?
Neutrophils: White blood cells fight infections. There are five kinds of white cells and each specialize in a certain type of infection. Neutrophils fight bacteria and fungus. Your neutrophil count was high because you had appendicitis and that was cured by the appendectomy. Lymphocytes specialize in fighting virus and some bacteria. Chances are you had this tested after your surgery, ask your doctor. ...Read more
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
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
Dear Dr, I have low lymphocyte count and high neutrophil count. I am currently taking steroids. Is this normal? Also, I have elevated igG 2000mg/dL.

What does two blood tests a month apart w/ low lymphocytes, low monocytes, high neutrophils, painful lymph nodes and fatigue indicate?
Hard to say: These numbers don't mean anything special, particularly when quoted without the other values on the white count and or without a history and exam. ...Read more
Not one but many: The low lymphocytes could be a sign of drugs, immune dysfunction, low production, infections from some virus that cause lymphopenia. The high neutrophils could be a sign of acute infection, bacterial or otherwise, overproduction from marrow, or reaction to drugs or chemicals among a few causes. The normal platelets with those two sets of data, not much role & need to be investigated by lab tests. ...Read more
I recently had a seizure, had blood work done at hospital. Found out my lymphocytes was low, neutrophils high, WBC was high. Had uti. Why was other off?
Elevation of: Wbc and neuts common in infection and after a seizure. My guess is lymphs were down on a relative basis (low percent on an elevated count) but no issue there. ...Read more
Viral infection: Viral infection is a common cause but there are others. Requires a thorough physical examination and perhaps additional lab studies. ...Read more
Nothing by itself: I often with that percentages weren't even reported on blood counts -- it generates confusion. Both neutrophil and lymphocyte levels fluctuate chaotically. If both are anywhere near the reference range, and no abnormal white cells showed up on smear, you're best not to worry. Life is difficult enough without trying to find meaning in a lab report where there probably is none. ...Read more
Need more info: What are the actual counts? Do you have any symptoms? How long have you had such counts? Lab results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and your doctor is in the best position to do that. ...Read more
Depends: Numbers that are near the upper or lower limits of normal are generally normal, and you have to see if there is a pattern over time. In general, very high neutrophils are seen in 3 conditions- bacterial infections, some high physical stress states, and receiving steroids. Also depends if very immature white cells are seen in the blood as well - this usually means serious bacterial infection. ...Read more
Depends: Are you ill? If not, I'd repeat the test in a couple of months to be sure since this may well be from an acute viral infection. If you are ill and this has been a persistent findings, then you'd consider seeing a hematologist ...Read more
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. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
Low neutrophils and high lymphocytes ihad a 36 low and a 52 high what would cause these, and is this serious?
What could atypical lymphocytes with low neutrophils and high lymphocyte values mean? Everything else is in normal range.
But having a lot of them would indicate a serious condition like leukemia. Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health, but there's a lot more on the test that you wouldn't know to tell me, but the person ordering it would know.
How abnormal are they? How many? Is there a lot of anemia or other abnormalities? Is the person getting the test sick? ...Read more

Plz ask your doctor!: There are dozens of possible explanations for this. You obviously went to a provider and had a blood count done, because you have the results.
