My one year old has high monocytes (1.8 absolute) and low neutrophils (0.5 absolute) could this be an indication of leukemia?

My one year old has high monocytes (1.8 absolute) and low neutrophils (0.5 absolute) could this be an indication of leukemia?

Probably not: At this age, the most likely cause for neutropenia (low neutrophils) accompanied by mild absolute monocytosis (normal is about 1) is an infection, most commonly viral. Consulting with your pediatrician is recommended. ...Read more

My one year old has high monocytes 1.8 absolute and low neutrophils 0.5 absolute. Is this an indication of leukemia? Labs 3 weeks prior were the same

Leukemia?: Well leukemia ia certainly one of the things in differential to consider. But remember simple things like acute viral syndrome can also present itself with this kind of blood picture. ...Read more

I have had one high monocyte reading but my monocyte absolutes were normal. Is this anything to be concerned about?

Absolute values: Reflect actual numbers and they are better in evaluating cell counts. Percentages or relative counts may get skewed based on actual WBC count. Hope it helps. ...Read more

Had one high monocyte count on blood work but monocyte absolute is normal. Is this a concern?

Had one high monocyte count on blood work but monocyte absolute is normal. Is this a concern?

Abnormal test result: In general, we know that any lab test has a "normal range", but that the results can change from day to day, or hour to hour. If you feel fine (no fevers, night sweats, unexplained weight loss) and the test was just done as a routine, then don't worry. It will likely be normal next time it is tested. If the test remains abnormal, the doctor will look into it further and run more tests. ...Read more

Check it out.
You might want to get a pest control company to treat the stagnant pools to kill mosquito larvae.
Good luck! ...Read more

Monocytes 1.09ng/L. Ref range 0.16 - 1.0. Anything to worry about?

Monocytes 1.09ng/L. Ref range 0.16 - 1.0. Anything to worry about?

No: The test result you provided is normal and nothing to worry about.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Neutrophils77% (normal values 50-70), monocytes 1% (nor.2-10), lymphocytes20% (nor.22-40), basophils 0% (nor.0-1), eosinophils2% (nor2-4)what can be? Teniasis?

Numbers are numbers: The rest of the story is needed, as these blood test result themselves are pretty normal... Which has almost no meaning without hearing the rest of the story. One's regular doctor, who knows why a blood test was ordered and who has examined the patient, can be helpful here. Otherwise, these numbers are just numbers... Could be anything... Or could be nothing. ...Read more

No/need stool sample: This is a near perfect blood smear result. You'd need a stool sample to diagnose teniasis and possible biopsy of the infected area. It's really important to get a visit and thorough exam from your doctor with practically definitive proof if this before starting a med like albendazole. Good luck. ...Read more

My eosinophils count is 10% (reference value 2-8%) and monocytes 1% (ref value 2-4%) is this ok?

How do you FEEL???: As a pathologist / lab medicine physician, I always remind others to look at the person, not the number. The absolute eosinophil count in the morning (the percentage times the total white count) is usually under 500, but this is meaningless unless there are symptoms or physical findings and i'll assume you're otherwise healthy. If I'm right, ignore it. ...Read more

LP Done. Half tests back. Monocytes @1%, WBC @ 23/mm3, RBC @1/mm3, lymphocytoid at 97%. Is this alarming?

Bad strategy: LP's are done for important illness. It's a bad strategy to come here with very partial information and try to second-guess the person you are working with. If you want another opinion, get all the data and see someone else with all the data. ...Read more

More information...: It would be helpful to know why you had these tests done. In other words, what symptoms are you having. It is difficult to interpret lab results in the absence of clinical information. ...Read more

My son aged 4 years 7 months, male has below readings from his blood test. Polymorphs - 49% Lymphocytes - 46% Monocytes - 1%....wht this indicate?

Viral? Nonspecific?: Depending on his symptoms it may suggest a viral infection and if he has none it may either signify a subclinical infection or nothing. Blood tests in isolation means nothing unless the whole picture of the child is taken into account. If worried u shd consult his doctor and discuss it with him. ...Read more

I have a very high WBC of 16.1, absolute neutrophils 11.4, lymphs 3.2, monocytes 1.2, and eos 0.3 What's wrong with me?

Could be an infectio: Any serious infection can lead to a high WBC count. In case you feel well there must have been some reason for you or your doctor to check your blood. So you need to tell us more history of how well/unwell you are and why blood checked? Your doctor can address simple matters easily. For more comlicated issues we can hellp ...Read more

In reports, total leukocytes count is 15000, Neutophils 65%, lympocytes 32%, Eosinophils 2%, monocytes 1%, ESR 39%. Suggest me. It is critical or not?

In reports, total leukocytes count is 15000, Neutophils 65%, lympocytes 32%, Eosinophils 2%, monocytes 1%, ESR 39%. Suggest me. It is critical or not?

Depends...: It depends on the clinical scenario. If your base WBC 3-4K, you are showing bands, Clinical condition deteriorating.......yes it is critical. If not just acute infection. ...Read more

What can cause constant migraines, mental issues now seizures. High platelets 2 yrs. Recent test platelets 565, 000, monocytes 1.0, low MCH. Next step?

What can cause constant migraines, mental issues now seizures. High platelets 2 yrs. Recent test platelets 565, 000, monocytes 1.0, low MCH. Next step?

Discuss with doctor: The findings you describe are consistent with "essential thrombocytosis", a condition in which the bone marrow produces too many platelets. Cause is unknown; it may be genetic. The "next step" should be a discussion with the provider who will be taking that next step with you-- along of course with parent (s) or guardian (s). ...Read more

I am trying to figure out if my CBC shows me having some kind of leukemia. Wbc is 12.5 lymphocyte 3.5 monocytes 1.1 neutrophils normal?

I am trying to figure out if my CBC shows me having some kind of leukemia. Wbc is 12.5 lymphocyte 3.5 monocytes 1.1 neutrophils normal?

Review the smear: At age 31 this is a very unusual group of absolute white cell counts. I'd get with your physician and find out whether the cells all appeared normal. This may be an inexperienced or inept technician's interpretation of a smear from infectious mononucleosis. If you FEEL well, I'd urge the bloodwork be repeated, and if still very abnormal, a hematology consult. ...Read more

Yes: You may need to have a lung function test to pinpoint the cause for your cough since one needs to rule out asthma. The blood tests showed that you might be borderline anemic but blood tests are not useful in diagnosing the cause of a cough. ...Read more

Blood test RBC 4.07, Hemoglobin 129 Hematocrit 0.385 Monocytes 1.1 GFR 57 Alkaline Phosphatase 39 Also Urine Albumin/Creatinine 6.7?

Need more info: Trying to give you a "heads up" on the implications of these values is like knowing the full story of a book by just reading the table of contents. The best person to give you insight about what these lab values mean is the physician who ordered them and knows a lot about your general health and background. ...Read more

I had an anion gap of 4, WBC 13.8, Neutrophils Abs. 9.1, Monocytes 1.3. My Dr. Thinks virus. Have felt dizzy for past week. BP low for me of 90/60.

I had an anion gap of 4, WBC 13.8, Neutrophils Abs. 9.1, Monocytes 1.3. My Dr. Thinks virus. Have felt dizzy for past week. BP low for me of 90/60.

Infection & dehydrat: The high WBC count suggests an infection which may be viral (symptoms should give clues to the type of infection). Your low blood pressure may be due to dehydration & it explains dizziness. Drink plenty of liquids and monitor your temp and BP. If no steady improvement see your dr again ...Read more

With a lesion already identified, bile duct dilation and pain, does this sound malignant? Total beta hCG is high, monocytes-1.1. Anion gap-10

With a lesion already identified, bile duct dilation and pain, does this sound malignant? Total beta hCG is high, monocytes-1.1. Anion gap-10

Possibly: Hcg elevates in germ cell tumors and pregnancy.
You did not mention a location for the "lesion"
perhaps you are just pregnant and have a stone stuck in the biliary tract.
If you are positive you are not pregnant, then I would be concerned about possible malignancy. ...Read more

CSF Results: If I am reading the results correctly, there appears to be a mononuclear pleocytosis with normal protein, glucose and essentially normal immune response. The fluid analysis cn be seen in many disorders including viral meningitis. Need additional information. ...Read more

7mm periampullary lesion, 3 liver lesions, total beta hCG is high, anion gap-10, monocytes-1.1, chloride high, erc low, cbd & pancreatic duct dilation?

7mm periampullary lesion, 3 liver lesions, total beta hCG is high, anion gap-10, monocytes-1.1, chloride high, erc low, cbd & pancreatic duct dilation?

Your question?: I appreciate your sharing this, but no one here will be able to make the call. Unless your HCG is extremely high, it means nothing. The other labs are not helpful. Your periampullary lesion has hopefully been biopsied, as will your liver lesions if the radiologist cannot certify them as benign. Hoping celiac sprue has been ruled in or out, along with whipple's and common lactose intolerance. ...Read more

14000 wbc, 3.1 potassium, hemocrit 39.2 abs nuetophil 8.7 abs monocyte 1.1 on blood test while having chest pain. Echo, stress, coronary CT angio clear?

Abnormal: A WBC of 14, 000 and a potassium of 3.1 are both abnormal and should be addressed. Neither are indicative of heart disease. The low potassium can, however, cause a rhythm disturbance. ...Read more

Hi. My son's absolute monocytes is 1.1 and his monocytes count is 15. What does it mean? He is 5yrs old and he was healthy when he got it done. Thanks

No cause for concern: 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, there is no cause for concern if the child does not have symptoms, the monocyte count is of no significance. ...Read more
