Could you tell me why my lymphocyte count is 0.5 and has been for 12 years now?

Could you tell me why my lymphocyte count is 0.5 and has been for 12 years now?

Possibly no problem: If you have no symptoms that led to a blood count that revealed the low count, you are probably fine. Also, if your total white cell count is low, so will be the number of lymphocytes.The fact that the count has not changed in 12 years further suggests that this is the case. You probably should not have any new blood counts unless there is a specific reason. ...Read more

Few years ago I had brucellosis. Since then my lymphocytes are slightly above the normal. Is it safe or should I go to a doctor?

Few years ago I had brucellosis. Since then my lymphocytes are slightly above the normal. Is it safe or should I go to a doctor?

Probably just you: Ignore percentages and look only at absolute counts. The reference range is set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside. And who's counting your lymphocytes if not a physician? Be grateful for having recovered from brucellosis and for good health. ...Read more

My lymphocytes is 3.4 is that dangerous? It means im sick?

My lymphocytes is 3.4 is that dangerous? It means im sick?

Not necessarily: Is 3.4 your lymphocyte or your total white blood cell count? If its total white blood cell, 3.4 is a bit low but if you feel fine and everything else on your blood tests is normal I wouldn't worry about it. Take another blood test in a few months to see if it is stable, improving, or getting worse. If that's only lymphocyte the same thing applies, you may have had a virus, recheck in a few months. ...Read more

Respiratory infectio: What's the question? Based on limited info sounds like you may have a viral or less likely bacterial infection ( which is probably treated anyway). I would expect that you get better over next few days. ...Read more

What does it mean if there is lymphocyte enumeration, high cd19?

What does it mean if there is lymphocyte enumeration, high cd19?

Lots of B cells: A lymphocyte enumeration is a count of the lymphocytes in your blood. Lymphocytes primarily include t-cells, b-cells, and nk-cells. B-cells are identified by cd19, a marker on their surface. Have the doctor who ordered the test help you interpret the result. The number of b-cells (how how the cd19 count is), your age, blood vs bone marrow, and your symptoms help him/her interpret the results. ...Read more
