Is chronically borderline low wbc concerning? Most recently 4.3 w/ reference range 3.4-10.8. All differentials in range. Indicate immune suppression?
Individual Normals: Individuals tend to be consistent for many such variables over time, though disease or other change in health can alter them. normal ranges are designed to include only 95% of people who are healthy.

Had an elevated WBC at 12.6 with neutrophils at 96%. Does this mean my lymphocytes are low? Does this indicate anything serious.
Elevated White Count: A count of 12,000 with 96% neutrophils generally points to an acute infection somewhere in your body. It needs to be identified and treated, probably with antibiotics to start.

My 4 year old has pnemonia. At 104 fever for 7 days now. He has ESR of 48, a low WBC of 5.4, low neutrophil band of 4%. What does that indicate?
Pneumonia: As a pathologist who's devoted a lifetime to the lab, it's key to remember that the history and physical tell most of the story. I'd ignore esr's on folks already clearly sick. There is no really lower limit of normal for bands; if high they suggest serious bacterial infection. Wbc can go up, down, or stay the same in a community-acquired pneumonia. Shouldn't impact treatment decisions. ...Read more
