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

Low lymphocytes and high neutrophils, what are the possible causes?

Low sodium, low lymphocytes and high neutrophils. Any cause for concern?

How far off?: And how do you feel? Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside the reference range. Ignore percentages on lymphocytes and neutrophils and only note the absolute values, and then only if they are far, far from reference range or there are abnormal forms. I can do this to my lymphs and neuts by taking a cold swim. If your doctor isn't worried, don't be. ...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.

What does low lymphocytes and high neutrophils mean?

What does low lymphocytes and high neutrophils mean?

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
