I just got my CBC results back. My WBC count was listed as low at 3.9 and neutrophil percentage was listed as low at 48 percent. What could this be?

I just got my CBC results back. My WBC count was listed as low at 3.9 and neutrophil percentage was listed as low at 48 percent. What could this be?

May be normal: I would not be alarmed by this. Your WBC is not far from normal. Your absolute neutrophil count is within normal limits. I would just repeat it in 6-8 weeks or sooner if you would feel more comfortable. Roughly 6-12% of the population have a low WBC and may be a normal variant. It just needs to be checked again to assess stability. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Wbc count elevated past 5 cbcs now dr says seeing a different type of WBC waiting on a hemotologist to come see me , what schould i expect to hear ?

A working diagnosis: Whether you have a low-grade leukemia or other myeloproliferative / myelodysplastic syndrome. Many of these require no treatment and/or can be managed fairly easily. Since you are clever enough to have found healthtap, you will want to learn about your test results -- there will probably be a lot of gene studies and you'll be getting an education. Best wishes. ...Read more

Should there be a concern if my WBC count in CBC performed as part of annual check up from april and may 2014 is both 4670/cu mm? Is it below normal?

Don't worry: That's fine. Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside on either end, and it's a concern only if neutrohils or lymphocytes are extremely low as absolute counts. ...Read more

What does it mean in my CBC test if my WBC count is 10.8, mchc is 300, pdw is 15.8 , lymphocytes is 27.2?

Not much: You have a WBC in the range of the upper limit of normal. Have you had a recent infection? None of these values are of concern, and interpretation without the clinical context is problematic. ...Read more

When an exam of vaginal discharge yields white blood cells, does that mean a CBC would show a low WBC count?

When an exam of vaginal discharge yields white blood cells, does that mean a CBC would show a low WBC count?

No: The body produces and distributes white cells as needed. The white blood cells most often found in the vaginal discharge are neutrophilic polymorphonuclear leukocytes, and these are called 'blood cells' simply because they're easily obtained from blood (where they travel) but visit many sites while on their tours of duty. ...Read more
