Could be normal.: Not sure why you would have blood drawn 3 months after having normal labs in a young and healthy female? There may be more to the story....? These labs could be seen as part of a viral syndrome. May be best to repeat them at some point. ...Read more

What dose it mean when your WBC high at 12.6 my segmented neutrophils is high 88.5 my lymphocytes is low 6.9?
Not very high: But the high neutrophils suggest that you do have an infection somewhere. ...Read more
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. Since the neutrophils are "taking over, " the lymphocyte count may appear low, but your doctor needs to evaluate the absolute number to be sure. The important thing is to identify and treat your infection. ...Read more
My 8 year old son has low neutrophils (1.70 K/microL) and low lymphocytes (1.3 K/microL) overall WBC is 3.6. What could this mean?
May need a workup: These are both just a little bit low for his age. Reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either side. I'm assuming he feels well and all the formed elements of the blood appear normal. He's in no danger now, and I suspect he'll simply be followed. ...Read more
Bloodwork im 49yrs old WBC 12.6 refer range of 4.0-11.0 neutrophils is slightly high 70.6 refer range of 40.0-70.0 lymphocytes is slightly low 21.8
Not concerned: That is not too far from normal. In addition, only one reading. I would check it again in 4-6 weeks or sooner if symptoms develop. Hope this helps. ...Read more
I recently have been diagnosed with a low neutrophil count 680mm3. Lymphocytes and all other wbcs and rbcs are are all in the normal range and I feel relatively healthy. Should I be concerned?
Probably not.: Normal neutrophil count is 1500, no risk of infection until <1000, and severe risk only <500, so 680 is only moderate risk. Causes are many. Sometimes this is transient and related to viral or other illness. Drugs can do this as a side effect. Autoimmune disease can be cause. The absence of problems in rbc or platelets is more reasuring, much less likely to be serious, such as leukemia. ...Read more
Actual results: It would help to know the actual values. All lab 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. ...Read more
Need to investigate: Low white blood cell count can be due to many reasons, none of those is good, and the patient needs to be investigated to determine the cause. Some may be as simple as vitamin deficiency others are as sever as bone marrow failure. Please discuss the matter with your doctor. ...Read more
I have a high WBC count. HIGH neutrophils count 0.77 and low lymphocyte count 0.3, what does it mean?
How high is WBC: Depending on how high the WBC is, the findings are suggestive of an infection most likely a viral one. However rarely can a diagnosis be made with just blood test results alone. ...Read more
I'm anemic and have high neutrophils (80%) and low lymphocytes (14%) with normal wbc. What could this mean?
Demand explanation: There are hundreds of causes of anemia. It is your right to demand to know why, from your physician. We can't tell without the information that he/she should have or should obtain. The percentages mean nothing in the absence of absolute counts; even if one of the absolute counts is a little bit out of the reference range, ti's probably not a concern. ...Read more

Whenever I get CBC and differential everything is always normal except neutrophils are always low and lymphocytes always high. Wbc always normal. Why?
May be your normal: It would help to know the actual values, however, if your blood cell counts are stable, these counts may be your normal. ...Read more
What could a low WBC 2.5 (4 normal), high monocytes 17 (normal below 12), low lymphocyte, low abs neutrophil, , low abs lymphocyte be? I'm worried.
Your CBC: It's good that you're interested in your bloodwork, and nobody here can diagnose you or even say whether illness is present without more data, beginning with "How do you feel? " WBC absolute counts fluctuate wildly even from hour to hour. The best course may just be to repeat the count. Absolute neuts &/or lymphs below 1000 are worrisome but there's no danger until much lower levels. ...Read more
Neutropenia: Low WBC plus low neutrophils is known as neutropenia. You don't really have high lymphocytes - you have to have100% of something so the lymphocytes appear proportionately higher since the neutrophils are low. You need to see a hematologist to determine the cause of & treatment for your low white cells. Please see my earlier posts on this topic for more information. ...Read more
Wbc: A white count of four on the WBC is actually a normal level. I wouldn't worry about it unless there is a significant elevation and your white count such as 20, 000. A hematologist consultation would be pointless for this. A common viral infection can cause elevated lymphocytes greater than neutrophils. I would suggest checking a CBC with differential in a months time. ...Read more
Is 1450 lymphocytes counts considered low? 8400 total WBC and 6100 neutrophils. Do I have low immunity? I feel fatigue
These labs are okay: You'll need to look for another cause of your being fatigued. Immunodeficiency actually isn't a common cause of fatigue. Work with your physician do find what is really going on. It can be anything from thyroid disease to a faulty home heater with carbon monoxide to anemia to sleep apnea. ...Read more
Low total wbc but normal neutrophils and lymphocytes, have hashimotos. No known infections, tested for everything. Any Possible causes?
24 year old lady with concern about lymphocytopenia.
There are both congenital and acquired conditions that can cause low white blood cells (lymphocytopenia). Either the body is not making enough, they are making them and they get destroyed or stuck in the spleen, lymph nodes as they circulate. There are infections, drugs and malignancies that can cause or no apparent reason. Please get full exam. ...Read more
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
My WBC is normal at 8.5 but my absolute neutrophil is high at 6.5 and my absolute lymphocyte is slightly low at 1.3. Platelets are 331. Thoughts?
CBC values: I would not be concerned with these values. I recommend that you wait three months & repeat. If you are still concerned, then a physical examination is appropriate. ...Read more

What would cause high neutrophil count and low lymphocyte count with a total wbc of 8? Is it cancer?!
No it is Not Cancer!: A WBC count of 8, made of neutrophils can not be cancer related. So you should not think about Cancer that much. If you feel well, you should ignore this report. If you want a more exact answer, then you need to send us the complete report of the numbers of cell in your CBC. ...Read more
