Got blood work done, it said leukocyte and neutrophil were below normal. Should i be worried?Doc said i wasn't anemic but feel tired and dizzy a lot
What does it mean when your cfs results say 264 rbc, 1 leukocyte, 72 lymphocytes, 18 neutrophils, and 10 histiocytes. Number of cells counted 100?
Traumatic Tap: VS subarachnoid hemorrhage A little blood may have gotten into the fluid on the way in or out if I'm understanding the numbers you have posted. (Ratio of 1 WBC to 264 RBC ) Normal differential. I usually will get a cell count on the first and 4th tubes. If the RBC goes up your concerned about SAH. If the number goes down: traumatic tap. Hope this is helpful. ...Read more
I have lymphocytes of 15 neutrophilis of 78 leukocyte of 35.6 and hemoglobin 16.1. I have an appointment with the Hematologist today but curious?
Labs: Hard to know without knowing the overall clinical picture (symptoms, physical exam findings, medical history, etc). The labs are outside of the range of normal, by only a marginal degree and may not be indicative of a serious problem. ...Read more

Unexplained high platelets (572), WBC (17.2), leukocytes, neutrophils, low hemaglobin. Bone marrow, jak2 and lupus test negative, ANA positive. Help?!
Reactive/ autoimmune: Discuss further with your hematologist. Certain conditions like iron deficiency , infection /inflammation vs autoimmune vs. Other solid tumor need to be ruled out. Need to check iron level, bcr/abl, imaging study like ct scan chest /abd/ pelvis will be needed. If you smoke - will suggest you to quit smoking., need to do work - up to find the anemia as well. If iron is low - GI w/u is needed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My son's blood test showed leukocytes 3, lymphocytes 1 and neutrophils 0.6. When will a bone marrow test be indicated? This was the 3rd abnormal test
Bone marrow test: May not be indicated as a next step, before that, more evaluation of his clinical condition by a hematologist and an a clinical immunologist, if available. His development, clinical status, immunization status need assessment first, avoid live vaccines for now till diagnosis is final, viz oral polio, MMR, Yellow fever, BCG and ? Menigitis vacccines. Wish yourself and your son all the best ...Read more
4 colon polyps removed, age 31. Leukocytes, Lymphocytes, and Neutrophils high. Waiting for pathology results. Should I be worried? Could it be cancer?
How do you feel?: The high mov is almost certainly nothing. Lab ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. If the wbcs look normal I would do nothing ...Read more
Probably not: But depends on the actual neutrophil count. So multiply the percentage of neutrophils x the total wbc. Example: WBC 5.0 (5000) and neutrophils are 80%, then the goal neutrophil count is 4000. Now unless your neutrophils are less than 800 or you have recurrent infections, I do not get overly concerned. Approximately 6% of the population has a low white count. Hope this helps. ...Read more
Not necessary: Not necessary, leukocytosis is common and could occur in the setting of infection. WBC of 17.8 with elevated neutrophils (ANC of 16.3) could be seen in bladder infections, pneumonia, viral infections, etc. It would be helpful to provide us with your Hemoglobin and Hematocrit levels to see if you are anemic, also what is your platelet levels as these numbers could help us a lot in the diagnosis. ...Read more
More or less: 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, your counts are not abnormal. You may consult these sites for info: https://medlineplus.gov/ency/article/003657.htm; http://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/complete-blood-count/details/results/rsc-20257186 ...Read more
What does it mean if your WBC is low and your lymphs are high and neutrophils are low what does this mean?
Ask your doctor to e: Your doctor is expected to explain what numbers of wmc/neutrophils you have and what it means. I would need to know the actual numbers to be able to interpret this information in your case. Get to know what is normal and what is low and how low it is? Normal WBC count is between 4, 000 to 10, 000 and about half of these numbers should be neutrophils. What are your numbers? ...Read more
My complex son has a low WBC for a year now. Neutrophils are either really low or normal but total WBC is always between 1.2-3.4 any ideas?
May never find why: With the challenging medical history you have outlined, the cause may never be found. Two questions to ask are whether junior has autoantibodies against his neutrophils, and whether the rises and falls cyclically. The levels to which the neutrophils are falling are probably not dangerous, but more severe neutropenias exist. I wish you both luck. ...Read more
For 2 weeks, had high WBC (11.1) for [ref. 3.4 - 10.8], high Neutrophils (7.7). For few months, had high Monocytes same level (1.0). Concern?
normal wbc 8.5 (normal 3.8-10.8 NEUTROPHILS 79.5 (normal 40.0-75.0) LYMP14.7 (normal 18.0-47.0) mean? anything to worry abl lyp 1.2 abl neut 6.8
White blood cells: As long as the white blood cell count is within normal range, slight shifts in the differential (number and percentage of different types of white blood cells) (i.e. neutrophils and lymphocytes, are usually not anything to be worried about. These values change on a day by day basis. Having increased neutrophils and decreased lymphocytes may be a sign of recent exposure to a bacterial infection. ...Read more
I will try this again, absolute neutrophils, neutrophils and imm gran are elevated, and wbc is at 9.9..all rising since March 6th..Is there concern?
Normal variation?: It depends on how low and in what context. Black americans (and some other ethnic/ancestry groups) can have so-called "ethnic neutropenia" (neutropenia is low neutrophils), and/or low WBC. Low WBC and neutrophils can also happen in bone marrow disorders, and infections. I would recommend seeing a hematologist. ...Read more
