Neutrophils Absolute Count
I have a WBC of 11.7 and a neutrophils (absolute) count of 7.9. Both are just outisde "high" range. Should I have this checked closer?
Depends: If you have no symptoms pointing to infection, and the morphology is normal, and your physician hasn't expressed concern, don't worry. The "range" is set to include 90% or so of apparently healthy people. A cold shower will shoot neutrophils well above normal range. "treat the person, not the lab value." thanks for asking. ...Read more
What does it mean to have a high monocytes and low neutrophils absolute count while I am taking Nexavar, (sorafenib) a chemotherapy for advanced thyroid cancer?
Effect of chemo: Low neutrophils are expected with chemotherapy agents, as the drugs destroy them (in the process of destroying the cancerous cells.) High monocyte count can be due to an infection or inflammation. Also, as the blood counts recover after a dose of chemo, the monocyte count can also be temporarily improved. Good luck with your cancer treatment. ...Read more
Normal: Normal absolute neutrophil count is 1.5 to 8.And 66.i% is also normal ...Read more
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 neutrophil count is a little above normal, however, that by itself is not a cause for concern.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. 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.

Not enough info: A blood count is only meaningful in the context of what is happening in the way of symptoms and signs of medical problems. It can be affected by medicines, infections (both vial and bacterial) and a host of other issues. The isolated information that you provided isn't alarmiing and really isn't meaningful all by itself. ...Read more

No, it does not: Wheatgrass does not do much of anything, good or bad. So this is not the reason for low white count. But mds is more likely the cause for your low blood counts. Are you taking any chemotherapy for mds? If the counts are dangerously low, then active treatment with chemotherapy may be the next step for you to consider. ...Read more
My absolute neutrophil count was 5.3 and lympocyte count was 3.0 all the rest were normal. What does that mean?
That's fine: You can do this by going for a nice healthy run. It's good for you. The reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside. If all the cells are well-formed, don't give this another thought. Best wishes. ...Read more
What is the medical terminology for an increase in the absolute neutrophil count above the upper limit of the reference range?
My lymphocytes count is 41, absolute neutrophil count 2450 and absolute lymphocyte count is 2009. Haemoglobin 15.4 so why am having elevated count?

I had my blood work done and my WBC was 14.7 and my absolute Neutrophil count was 9.9, my absolute monocytes was 0.9. Should I be worried?
Depends: 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, if you do not have symptoms, it would be prudent to repeat the test in a few weeks. The usual cause of neutrophilic leukocytosis is bacterial infection. There is no reason to worry, but do consult your doctor for a follow-up test. ...Read more
Can neupogen be prescribed to patient with low wbc/low absolute neutrophil count resulting from antipsychotic medications? Thanks
Yes: That's one indication.Get a more detailed answer ›
Usually nothing: The absolute counts of neuts, lymphs and their teammates vary tremendously even from hour to hour. Unless the absolute lymphocyte count drops below 1000, it's not even interesting. At 500 or so, it's a health concern and your physician will let you know what you need to do. ...Read more
Medical history: Schilling counted the number of segments on each neutrohil. This gave rise to the terms "right shift" and "left shift"; the former is hypersegmented neutrophils in megaloblastic change, the latter a lot of neutrophils without segments in serious bactrial infection or some leukemias. We don't do this any more. We'll simply look at and describe the smear. ...Read more
Yes: 60 to 72 is the normal percentage of segmented neutrophils in the blood. ...Read more
Hard to say: Any lab result gives a number that is compared to a range of normal. But even the extremes of "too high" can still be normal for an individual. If the result is a change, then a high neutrophil count makes me think of infection (since that is one of the bodies responses), inflammation, stress, reaction to medication or even cancer like leukemia. Talk with provider who ordered test to put in context. ...Read more
Normal range for absolute neutrophil count is: 1.5 to 8.0 (1, 500 to 8, 000/mm3), inflammation/infection is the commonest cause of elevated neutrophil count. See this site for more information.

Neutrophils: Neutrophils are critical to defense against certain types of infections, and levels below 500/dl are often considered high risk for infection. Your value is on the high end, though you should check the reference range for your lab. This may indicate current or recent infection, or a reaction to stress or drugs that has shifted these cells into circulation. Best correlate with your doctor. ...Read more
