Lots of things: A low WBC can be from neutritional deficiency, autoimmune diseases, hormone disorders, bone marrow failure states (aplastic anemia, myelodysplastic syndrome) and leukemias.

My lab test came back with low Neutrophils 40.3 sure I be concerned?

Need to know CBC: Complete Blood counts (CBC) is essential in order to tell you what you need to know. Neutrophils are typically 50-60% of your WBC count. But they can fluctuate. It depends on the cause of why you had the blood tests done in the first place. If you have had viral illness (Flue like illness) you can have an increase in lymphocytes which can make the neutrophil look low but that is only a short lived ...Read more

What to do if I have a low wbc (3.6), high lymps (56), low neutrophils?

Recheck in 6 -12 wk: Start with what you had that make your doctor check the wbc. The most common cause of slightly low WBC with a high proportion of lymphs is a viral illness (which causes the neutrophils to drop). So, as long as your other counts are okay, just wait and recheck in 6-12 weeks. Your doctor likely checked to make sure your WBC was not elevated (often caused by bacterial infection) to be safe. ...Read more

What the effect low neutrophils and high lymphocytes mean?

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

What does matter is the pattern and direction of the trend. So yes check in with you child's pediatrician to assess the significance of these results for your child. ...Read more

What could atypical lymphocytes with low neutrophils and high lymphocyte values mean? Everything else is in normal range.

Normal WBC but low neutrophil. Should I be worried?

Probably not: But depends on the actual neutrophil count. So multiply the percentage of neutrophils x the total wbc. Example: WBC 5.0 (5000) and neutrophils are 80%, then the goal neutrophil count is 4000. Now unless your neutrophils are less than 800 or you have recurrent infections, I do not get overly concerned. Approximately 6% of the population has a low white count. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Numbers fine: Those numbers are fine for your lymphocyte and neutrophil percentages. You can have virus infections that hold on for a while causing symptoms, but more likely the chronic symptoms are caused by allergies. I would work with your doc or and ENT to determine cause of your chronic symptoms, and then add if an allergist if felt to be allergic in nature. ...Read more

What does low neutrophil with high eosinophil mean?

What does low neutrophil with high eosinophil mean?

Allergic Rxn, error,: Neutrophils are normally 45-74% in a count of wbc's while eosinophils are normally 0-7%. You might have a high count from an allergic reaction to something or it might be that some neutrophils might have been mistaken for eosinophils. Either way, this does not seem abnormal enough to indicate an underlying disorder. A repeat count would be advised. See your doctor. ...Read more
