Slightly low WBC, low platelets, low neutrophils, no baso's. Elevated lymph's and mono's. Does that mean bone sarcoidosis is back and active?

Slightly low WBC, low platelets, low neutrophils, no baso's. Elevated lymph's and mono's. Does that mean bone sarcoidosis is back and active?

Give us the numbers: Medicine is quantitative....actual numbers are essential to make any diagnosis. Slight changes mean very little. They can be misleading at best. So send us the exact numbers of your blood counts, then we can help you to interpret their meaning. Also tell us more about the past history of Sarcoidosis that you have mentioned

Low Platelets (Definition)

In the blood. They "bud" ie break off from cells in the bone marrow called megakaryocytes. A normal platelet count is 140-400. Platelets are the first line of defense in blood vessel bleeding. They "plug holes" until the coagulation proteins can begin ...Read more

CBC/Diff Ambiguous Default WBC 3.0 Low, Platelets 100 Alert and Neutrophils (Absolute) 1.3 Low what to do and from what is the cause please?

CBC/Diff Ambiguous Default WBC 3.0 Low, Platelets 100 Alert and Neutrophils (Absolute) 1.3 Low what to do and from what is the cause please?

Multiple poss: Older labs and why done would help. This can be something as simple as lab error which is very common. The next most common cause would be a viral illness causing borderline labs. This can also be a sign of an early serious infection or bone marrow problem. These labs should be repeated in a few days to see if changing. If signs if infection, fever or bleeding see doctor or go to ER immediately.

Pediatric cancer? Low RBC, low WBC, low platelets, low IGM, high MCV, low neutrophils, low monocytes and low eosinophils, occasional myelocytes,

Pediatric cancer? Low RBC, low WBC, low platelets, low IGM, high MCV, low neutrophils, low monocytes and low eosinophils, occasional myelocytes,

Tough set of labs: Suppression of multiple cell lines certainly is a concerning finding on a CBC. Yes, there are pediatric cancers that may present with this type of blood test results. Talking to your heme/onc specialist as soon as possible would be advisable! But don't jump to conclusions because a specialist with the "whole picture" may give you a very surprising answer!

I have mildly low WBC and mildly low platelets. My platelets (auto) are 135 on a range of 143-398. My WBC is 3.90 (range 4.16-9.95). What is cause?

Low platelets, WBC: There are many possible causes of low platelets and low WBC. Some medications can do this, some viral infections and many other causes. It is best to see your doctor regularly to follow up on these tests to make sure they are not decreasing to a serious level. Then, you may need more extensive testing.

What conditions could cause high monocytes, lymphs, bezors, low wbc and low platelets? Also fluctuations?

Abnormal blood cell: Bezors probably has nothing to do with mono/ lymphocytosis. Having said that it is inadequate information to connect the dots. Detailed history and examination is required otherwise it would be a case handled by GOOGLE doctor. Have it evaluated by a physician with complete history and physical

Recent labs came back with low platelets 115k and WBC 3.55 (scale 3.70-11.0). I was feeling weak that day. Other labs ok. Should I worry of cancer?

Recent labs came back with low platelets 115k and WBC 3.55 (scale 3.70-11.0). I was feeling weak that day. Other labs ok. Should I worry of cancer?

No: Why you worry about cancer? These result could be due to recent viral infection or after "cold" and just have temporary effect. Give yourself few days of rest and see what happen. Be well.

Are borderline low platelets (174x10E3/ul) and 2 petechiae on abdomen suggestive of leukemia? WBC, RBC, differential all normal and feel fine. Thanks!

Are borderline low platelets (174x10E3/ul) and 2 petechiae on abdomen suggestive of leukemia? WBC, RBC, differential all normal and feel fine. Thanks!

Not leukemia: Petechiae due to low platelets would require a much lower platelet count, under 20, 000 or so and often lower than that. So whatever the marks on your abdomen, they aren't petechiae due to low platelets. And with the rest of your blood counts normal, leukemia should not be on your mind. See your doctor if you remain concerned, but I see no reason for worry.

I h2ad a CBC test done and I had low WBC and platelets. My platelets were 137. Is it dangerous to be on Coumadin (warfarin) with such low platelets?

I h2ad a CBC test done and I had low WBC and platelets. My platelets were 137. Is it dangerous to be on Coumadin (warfarin) with such low platelets?

Nit necessarily: Usually plarelet counts over 100, 000 are not associated with abnormal. Bleeding The bigger question is why you are on coumadin (warfarin) Talk ti your doctor for concerns

Low platelets, high SEG, low lymphocytes, normal WBC. Feel unwell. History of Lyme. Recent new tick bite. Reinfection? Symptoms similar to before.

Low platelets, high SEG, low lymphocytes, normal WBC. Feel unwell. History of Lyme. Recent new tick bite. Reinfection? Symptoms similar to before.

Lyme disease: You do not say what your prior symptoms were or whether or not the diagnosis was ever confirmed. If you have had a typical rash, have symptoms of cardiac, neurological or arthritic nature you should be seen by a doctor familiar with this disease and evaluated before being treated.

Few months ago CBC with low rbc, wbc, hemoglobin, hematocrit, platelets. Since then CBC normal, but some low platelets. Often feel achy, could be hiv?

Few months ago CBC with low rbc, wbc, hemoglobin, hematocrit, platelets. Since then CBC normal, but some low platelets. Often feel achy, could be hiv?

HIV does not Hide: If you are worried about an HIV infection then you go get an HIV test. HIV is diagnosable by testing from seven days after exposure onwards with the correct tests. It does not hide and we no longer need to worry about ambiguous symptoms. If your HIV tests are negative then I do not understand the concern. There is nothing in a CBC test that would represent an early HIV infection.

Vancomycin/levaquin for meningitis last year. Ever since, times of weak/aches. Had low platelets 115k, wbc 3.55. Can meds have damaged my bone marrow?

Vancomycin/levaquin for meningitis last year. Ever since, times of weak/aches. Had low platelets 115k, wbc 3.55. Can meds have damaged my bone marrow?

Yes: Levaquin has been associated with nerve damage and weakness, though a year later is unusual. The infection or meds might have caused bone marrow damage. You may need to see a hematologist

What could low platelets, low neutrophils and high lymphocytes mean?

What could low platelets, low neutrophils and high lymphocytes mean?

See your doctor: It depends on how high the lymphs are and the total wbc. There could be a number of causes of this count, some serious and some not so serious. It could be anything from a viral infection to a form of leukemia. Your doctor should review the count with you.

What are some reasons why my 10-year-old son would have both low platelets and low neutrophils and everything else be normal on his blood test?

What are some reasons why my 10-year-old son would have both low platelets and low neutrophils and everything else be normal on his blood test?

Out of Context: There is nothing specific to give you any advice on. A blood cell report is interpreted as a whole, not as individual results. Given everything else being normal then there is likely nothing to comment upon. But, it is the job of the ordering physician to interpret this report for you.

I have trisomy 8 mosaicism without any physical or mental difficulties. I have low platelets and neutrophil levels. Is rai suitable for me hyperthyroi?

Likely: You should always discuss the risk and benefits of rai treatment with doctor but it is an approved treatment for hyperthyroidism and should not affect the platelet and white blood cell count.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN IF I HAVE LOW WBC AND HIGH PLATELETS, HIGH SEGMENTED NEUTROPHILS AND LOW EOSINPHILS??

Nonspecific: These tests rarely tell you much and have to be interpreted in the context. The normals are based on averages but highs and lows have no clinical significance. For example, if you have a high segmented percentage in the setting of low WBCs that can actually mean a normal absolute segmented count. Also, eos generally should be low.
