I have hives for over two weeks. Gp ran full blood panel everything was okay except for slightly elevated lymphocytes. Still itchy with welts.

Antihistamines: Acute urticaria is hives which have lasted less than six weeks. No blood work is indicated in general. The treatment which is best is long acting antihistamines (allegra, claritin, (loratadine) zyrtec for example). ...Read more

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

What is the significance of persistently elevated lymphocyte levels (2 years, slightly above the normal range)?

What is the significance of persistently elevated lymphocyte levels (2 years, slightly above the normal range)?

Could be serious: Please have your doctor check this out. There is a condition called cll, which causes the lymphocytes to be elevated. If you are middle aged your risk for this is increased. It is a slowly progressive form of leukemia, but with monitoring, you can do well. If that isn't it, you may just have more lymphocytes than is "normal". ...Read more

HIV -. What does this mean from testing lymphocyte subset panel 5 test? Lymphocytes abs. 3925H, CD4, abs. 1938H cd4% 49. What does this lab mean to me

HIV -. What does this mean from testing lymphocyte subset panel 5 test? Lymphocytes abs. 3925H, CD4, abs. 1938H cd4% 49. What does this lab mean to me

Good result.: Your CD4 count is the important number.
Yours is over a thousand. Anything over 350 is excellent and means your immune system is working. If you are taking ART medicines, keep doing so, everyday, meticulously they are working.
If you are not taking them you should see a doctor experienced in Aids management. ...Read more

Hiv tested negative... Why and what would a lymphocyte panel 5 test mean too me CD4 absolute 1938 H. Lymphocytes abs 3925 H. Like I said hiv-! Why tes?

See below: 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. Having said that, you counts are normal, but HIV is not the only reason to do these tests. Do you have any symptoms? It would be prudent to discuss the matter with your doctor. ...Read more

Crp. 1 mg/l. Ra/anti-dsdna antibs/ana all negative. Why might hematology report indicate "suggested reactive or inflammatory process"? Also noted subset of reactive lymphocytes, occasionally atypical.

Crp. 1 mg/l. Ra/anti-dsdna antibs/ana all negative. Why might hematology report indicate "suggested reactive or inflammatory process"? Also noted subset of reactive lymphocytes, occasionally atypical.

See below: Reactive (atypical) lymphocytes are usually due to viral illness or stressor on the body. It could be due to a medicine reaction or autoimmune disorder as well. Your CRP level of 0.1 is very low which is good. And your ra/anti ds dna are negative. So overall they didn't find anything abnormal and they called it possibly due to reactive process. ...Read more

What does lymphocyte absolute mean?

What does lymphocyte absolute mean?

Total number: Total white blood cells (WBC) seen in a lab report is a total number obtained by adding all the different types of wbc- neutrophils, lymphocytes, basophils, eosinophils,
so when labs report wbc; they first write down the different cells and their percentage of the total; and also the absolute number (which is more accurate); adding these numbers make up the wbc. ...Read more

What do low lymphocytes indicate?

What do low lymphocytes indicate?

Immunodeficiency: Lymphocytes are the regulators of our immune system.
Low lymphocyte count is less than 500/ mm3
this can be part of a total low white count (say bone marrow failure or plastic anemia, or after chemotherapy) or it can be caused by connective tissue disease like Lupus. Immunosuppressants, HIV, and Severe acute respiratory distress are viral causes as well.
legionella and certain zoonosis can too ...Read more

How can one raise their lymphocytes?

Curious: Do you mean raise your immune system in general or raise the actual count of white cells on your blood test? Even more specifically, do you mean just the lymphocyte count which is only one type of white cell (others include neutrophils, eosinophil). If you always have a low WBC count, yet feel fine, try jumping jacks for 60 seconds prior to your blood draw, it "shakes" the white cells off wall. ...Read more

What does a lymphocyte count of 0.7 indicate?

What does a lymphocyte count of 0.7 indicate?

Low lymphocytes: A low lymphocyte count is also called lymphopenia. A count of 0.7 says that you only have 700 lymphocytes present on the blood test (which is to few). Lymphopenia can be caused by many things including HIV infection. I would suggest speaking with your physician and getting a referral if appropriate to a hematologist for further evaluation and have a repeat CBC performed and consider HIV testing. ...Read more

Tell us more: Why did you get the blood checked in the first place? Also tell us about your complete blood count (CBC) report. Normally lymphocytes constitute 20-30% of your total white cell (WBC) count. But there can be fluctuations in these numbers. So if there is concern, you can redo the CBC and send us the whole report. ...Read more

What does a low lymphocyte and high monocyte mean?

What does a low lymphocyte and high monocyte mean?

Depends: This depends upon what is abnormal. If the percentages of lymphs are low and monos high, it is likely that some stress has caused an increase of cortisol level, driving both of these changes. If the absolute levels of these cell types are abnormal, there could be a more serious infection or a bone marrow disorder that requires further investigation. ...Read more
