Low White Blood Cell Count And Elevated Liver Enzymes
Liver testing: With the situation of elevation of liver enzymes and white blood cells, this requires a follow up with a physician to rule out an infection. Further imaging including abdominal ultrasound or ct scan of the abdomen may be warranted as well depending on the physical examination by the physician. ...Read more
This organ plays a major role in metabolism and has a number of functions in the body, including glycogen storage, decomposition of red blood cells, plasma protein synthesis, hormone production, and detoxification. It lies below the diaphragm in the abdominal-pelvic region of the abdomen. It produces bile, an alkaline compound which aids in digestion via the emulsification of ...Read more
Sounds like: It could be an infection or a medication. Hard to say without the clinical context. ...Read more

Seriously sick: Please forgive my frankness. Nobody here can diagnose you. You're taking a vitamin hyped as being designed for liver disease and another with a bit of amylase hyped as being good for digestion. You have a seriously elevated sgpt, probably from liver, and you are anemic. There are a great many different possibilities. For your own sake ; those who love you, get with a competent physician. ...Read more
Low MCV high red blood cells with abnormal morphology with low neutrophils and high lymphocytes counts?
Means nothing alone: In isolation from the patient story, lab tests mean nothing. This is especially true since we have no actual numbers. The low MCV and high rbc would make any physician think of a thalassemia, but it would be criminal to speculate further without knowing more about the person. If this is a you or a family member, you have a right and a duty to request your doctor's thoughts, or get consultation. ...Read more
Fetal Hemoglobin: The values of the WBC (white blood count) and hemoglobin (Hgb)-F or fetal hemoglobin are crucial to any answer. High Hgb-F is commonly seen in those with hereditary conditions affecting hemoglobin such as sickle cell anemia and thalassemia. If you have either of these then high Hgb-F and high WBC can occur. You need to present the actual numbers, and also tell us your ethnicity. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

What causes low white bloodcells (3.6)and low platelets (135)? Blood clotting, fasting sugar, thyroid, electrolytes, kidney and liver function are normal.
These are: Lowish but not low enough to do anything but repeat the test. The issue is why were they drawn? Higher WBC counts indicate infection, low counts of one element ( red cell, white cell or platelets) can be a variety of things for each from lack of production to excess destruction, to crowding out by other things. Too much to detail here, repeat the test and call your doctor. ...Read more
Hematology workup: The elevation of these 2 parameters of the CBC (complete blood count) may reflect infection or inflammation. However, depending on the chronicity and extent of rise, it may also be associated with bone marrow problems such as myeloproliferative diseases. I suggest a hematology consultation and workup to sort out the underlying cause(s). ...Read more
Hemoglobin hematocrit and red blood cell low counts and glucose and nitrogen high what is cause
Numbers are numbers: Lab results are numbers, and numbers are just numbers. They have little meaning without looking at the whole person. Low hemoglobin, hematocrit, and red blood cell counts means blood cells are not being made fast enough, are being lost (through bleeding), are being broken up, or any combination of such problems. Glucose goes up from increased body stress, inadequate insulin, I.V. Glucose, etc.... ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Infection: Elevated WBC count is usually a response to an infection. The elevated monocytes may mean that you have a chronic infection or an autoimmune condition. You are taking methylprednisolone which is also used to treat the symptoms of an autoimmune condition so the elevated monocytes may be due to the condition that you are taken that med for. Check with your doctor. ...Read more
Low CPK high white count low bilirubin and ALT high monocytes high neutrophils and low lymphocytes should I be concerned?
Need more info: All laboratory 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. Do you have any symptoms? Why were these tests done? The issue may not be appropriate for this forum and likely requires an in-person evaluation. ...Read more
What does high white blood cells, high neutrophils and low lymphocytes indicate?Absolute levels and all others are normal
Cause: There are some primary bone marrow problems that can raise WBC (eg, leukemias like cll) or platelets (pv, et). Far more likely is an inflammatory reaction such as infection causing an increase in "acute phase reactants". More context is needed. Since someone ordered the complete blood count (CBC) for a reason, what was that reason, and what was that physicians interpretation? ...Read more
