My Blood Count Is 8
My white blood cell count is 3.2 and my monocyte count is 13.3 and my reticulocytes is 103900 what does this mean?
CBC: What you describe sounds like CBC associated with a viral process. Low white cell count and high monocytes or a monocytosis. I believe you mean thrombocytes at 103,900 which are your platelets and that is normal. Reticulocytes are newly formed red cells and they are usually expressed in a percentage. 0.5%-2% is normal range. A reticulocyte count above 5% would be high. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am a 31 yo female. My WBC was 19 and my RBC was 3.1 (iron level 8.2). What does it mean to have a high white blood count and a low red blood count?
D/w your doctor: How is your period? Is it heavy? What is your ferritin? Hemoglobin? You should see your doctor and discuss with your doctor about your blood work result. You are anemic and your serum iron is low. You may have an iron deficiency anemia which is related to your heavy cycle perhaps vs other kind of anemia. Wbc can be elevated in different settings-like bleeding, infection, inflammation, cancer etc. ...Read more

My white blood count is 13 and my sedimentation rate us 25 is there a need for concern white blood count has been high a year absolute neutrophil high?
Hard to say: A WBC of 13,000 may indicate an acute infection, but the fact that it's been present for a year speaks against it being due to infection. Sed rate is a non specific test and is not diagnostic of anything. It would be worthwhile to review any medications you are taking that might elevate your WBC.

My husband has low blood count. Hemoglobin 14, RBC 5.59, low WBC 3700, platelets 157000. What's wrong with him?
I think he's fine: There's no such thing as a perfect husband, but I don't see any problems with his blood picture. The total WBC count is actually at the low end of what I think is a reasonable reference range, and unless the neuts are very low or he's clearly sick clinically, I'd simply be thankful for good health. I trust he has other faults and that the two of you will be forbearing & love one another. ...Read more

Workup: I trust you are not iron deficient. Your hematologist may be considering a workup for essential thrombocythemia, perhaps ordering a check for the jak2 mutation that's often present. Whether this is worth doing when the information is probably not needed for treatment or planning your life is for you to make with your physician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My 7 yr. Old has abnormal blood for a 2nd time within 1 mth. She got a high white cell count and high platelets count. What does it mean? Leukemia?
Can't really tell: Lab results usually are numbers, and numbers are just numbers, with little meaning unless a doctor takes in the whole picture of what's going on with his patient. If the patient's blood white cell count is somewhat higher than the reference range, the ordering doctor may or may not consider the result a problem, depending on the patient's previous results, her symptoms, and her medications. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
