My monocytes value increase 10% and the normal value is 8%. what are the reasons. K?

My monocytes value increase 10% and the normal value is 8%. what are the reasons. K?

Not to worry: A SLIGHT INCREASE IN THE PERCENT OF MONOCYTES MOST OFTEN MEANS NOTHING IN THE ABSENCE OF SYMPTOMS. The monocyte count can also be elevated due to any infection or inflammation in the body, myeloproliferative disorders and cancer. ...Read more

I am 24 years old. My monocyte count is 9.2. no medical history. Is that count normal?

I am 24 years old. My monocyte count is 9.2. no medical history. Is that count normal?

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. Having said that, a monocyte count of 9.2 is by itself not a cause for concern. If you do not have any symptoms, do not chase lab test results. ...Read more

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

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

My lymphocyte absolute is 4.23 and my monocyte absolute is 0.84 is this normal?

My lymphocyte absolute is 4.23 and my monocyte absolute is 0.84 is this normal?

Why check it?: Do you have any physical symptoms or complaints? Why did you get your blood count checked in the first place? . Right now these values do not worry me; but you need to send us the complete blood count (CBC) results. Also recheck your CBC once more sometime in the next 3 to 6 months and send us the results if there is any increase in your blood counts. ...Read more

My son 12yr has monocytes 10% n hemoglobin is 11.3. All other CBP is normal?

My son 12yr has monocytes 10% n hemoglobin is 11.3. All other CBP is normal?

What prompted a CBC?: Assuming your son is healthy in every other way an elevated monocyte count is not necessarily suspicious. His hemoglobin is a little low and would bear further evaluation. Is there a family history of blood disorders? Has he been fighting an infection recently? . Most likely his doctor will recommend reevaluation in a month or two. ...Read more

Hello. My monocyte count is in normal range but my abs monocyte count is low. What does this mean?

Hello. My monocyte count is in normal range but my abs monocyte count is low. What does this mean?

Hard to say.: One lab value is pretty meaningless. Any result needs to be considered in light of the symptoms being treated. If you are otherwise fine, consider repeating it if you are concerned in a couple of weeks. ...Read more

Monocytes came back raised at 1.09ng/l. Normal range is 0.16 to 1.0ng/l. This anything to worry about? Thanks

Not at all: If you feel well, even much high monocytes means nothing. And this is very close to reference range, which is set up so that a few percent of healthy folks fall outside on either side ...Read more

I have a cold and my monocyte count is slightly higher that the normal range, could it be because I have a cold?

I have a cold and my monocyte count is slightly higher that the normal range, could it be because I have a cold?

May be: 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, it would have helped to have the actual results. However, slightly elevated monocyte count by itself is not a cause for concern. ...Read more

My test for monocytes indicates 0.01 - Is this normal?

My test for monocytes indicates 0.01 - Is this normal?

Check reference rang: Most laboratory tests will come with "normal" reference range. Because there are several different ways to measure things eg quarts vs liters etc, rather than pull a single value out of context, look at it in comparison to that lab's reference range. Also, abnormal results tend to be altered eg boldfaced, placed in "abnormal" column or denoted as such [H] or [L]. We might not worry about one point ...Read more

How to tell if these monocyte and lymphocyte numbers are normal?

Why do you ask?: If the absolute lymphocyte count is anywhere near the reference range, stop worrying. Even more so for the absolute monocyte count. Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthies fall outside. ...Read more

Have low monocytes and normal lymphocytes?

Have low monocytes and normal lymphocytes?

Context: As a pathologist, I spend a lot of time telling other folks, "don't focus on the numbers, focus on the person." a low absolute monocyte count seldom means anything. A low percentage of monocytes may reflect a transient increase in other cells due to the slight stresses of minor illness or everyday life. If your physician is not concerned, you should not be either. ...Read more

What is the normal results for monocytes and lymph fluid in percentage for a 2 month old?

What is the normal results for monocytes and lymph fluid in percentage for a 2 month old?

Normals: Lymphocytes 56 %

Monocytes 7%

These are average and for a 1 month old

There is a range of normal however, so it can be above & below those numbers

I'm assume by fluid that you mean in blood. ...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

Why I have monocytes, absolute elevated if everything else in CBC (includes diff/plc) test is normal?

Probably no reason: The reference range is set so that 5% of healthy folks will test high. I'm going to assume there are no abnormal forms, that you do not have anything to suggest typhoid fever or advancing tuberculosis, and that this is an anomaly found on routine lab work. If so, stop worrying about it. ...Read more

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
