Does it matter if my WBC are normal but my lymphocyte % is a little on the low side: 19.4?

No: For example if your total WBC is 8000 and the lymphs are 19% then your absolute lymph count is 1600 which is just fine. ...Read more

I'm concerned because my absolute lymphocytes are 0.93 and the starting of normal range is 1.20 is this considerably low? My WBC is 4.02

Your counts are OK: Your lymphocyte counts are close to normal. Unless you have some cause for having low lymphocyte count like HIV infection, I would not be too concerned as the counts tend to fluctuate over a wide range. If you are too worried, you can recheck your CBC and Lymphocyte count in one month from now, jut to be certain. ...Read more

No: 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, you may leave things alone and there is no need to worry. ...Read more

Send report of CBC: We can help you better if you can send the actual CBC reports (2-3 recent reports). There is a wide range of normal counts. I would not worry about the Lymphocyte counts unless you have some concern about HIV infection? Let us know more. ...Read more

Numbers are numbers: The rest of the story is needed, as these test result themselves don't mean anything... 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. Can use HealthTap PRIME to talk to a live doctor so resolve this issue. ...Read more

High esr and normal wbc count. What does this mean. Also my lymphocyte count is a bit low?

High esr and normal wbc count. What does this mean. Also my lymphocyte count is a bit low?

Inflammation: A slightly low lymphocyte count usually is meaningless. A high erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) indicates an infection or some sort of systemic inflammation. Hundreds of things can cause it. High ESR never gives a clue to any particular diagnosis. It just means additional exams and testing are necessary to learn the cause. Keep working with your doctor. Good luck! ...Read more

I recently have been diagnosed with a low neutrophil count 680mm3. Lymphocytes and all other wbcs and rbcs are are all in the normal range and I feel relatively healthy. Should I be concerned?

I recently have been diagnosed with a low neutrophil count 680mm3. Lymphocytes and all other wbcs and rbcs are are all in the normal range and I feel relatively healthy. Should I be concerned?

Probably not.: Normal neutrophil count is 1500, no risk of infection until <1000, and severe risk only <500, so 680 is only moderate risk. Causes are many. Sometimes this is transient and related to viral or other illness. Drugs can do this as a side effect. Autoimmune disease can be cause. The absence of problems in rbc or platelets is more reasuring, much less likely to be serious, such as leukemia. ...Read more

I'm anemic and have high neutrophils (80%) and low lymphocytes (14%) with normal wbc. What could this mean?

I'm anemic and have high neutrophils (80%) and low lymphocytes (14%) with normal wbc. What could this mean?

Demand explanation: There are hundreds of causes of anemia. It is your right to demand to know why, from your physician. We can't tell without the information that he/she should have or should obtain. The percentages mean nothing in the absence of absolute counts; even if one of the absolute counts is a little bit out of the reference range, ti's probably not a concern. ...Read more

What could a low WBC 2.5 (4 normal), high monocytes 17 (normal below 12), low lymphocyte, low abs neutrophil, , low abs lymphocyte be? I'm worried.

Your CBC: It's good that you're interested in your bloodwork, and nobody here can diagnose you or even say whether illness is present without more data, beginning with "How do you feel? " WBC absolute counts fluctuate wildly even from hour to hour. The best course may just be to repeat the count. Absolute neuts &/or lymphs below 1000 are worrisome but there's no danger until much lower levels. ...Read more

I hve a normal count of hemoglobin, rbc, WBC but my eosonophil & lymphocyte are elevated while my monocyte is low. What are d possible infections I hve?

How high?: You should ignore percentages of white cells returned on a cbc, pay attention only to absolute counts (they're of interest only if you're far from the reference range or abnormal cells are present), and look at the big picture with your physician. You'd be doing yourself a grave disservice by reading internet sites that discuss labs in isolation. If you feel well, I suspect nothing is wrong. ...Read more

Lymphocytopenia: 24 year old lady with concern about lymphocytopenia.
There are both congenital and acquired conditions that can cause low white blood cells (lymphocytopenia).

There are infections, drugs and malignancies that can cause or no apparent reason. Please get full exam. ...Read more

Odd statement: You present information in a format that makes little sense. No lab reports WBC 16.9%, they give a count. Perhaps you need to start over and give more accurate info. These questions are never linked, so you must start over and make any question complete. ...Read more

I recently had a CBC with differential. Can your t-cells be low if your wbc, rbc, platelets, and all lymphocytes were normal? Wouldn't these be lower?

Not necessarily: It would be useful to have the actual counts. A normal WBC count at the low end may still be accompanied by low t cells. 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. ...Read more
