What is schilling's count for neutrophils?

What is schilling's count for neutrophils?

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

I have high absolute neutrophils. What's this mean?

I have high absolute neutrophils. What's this mean?

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

Elevated neutrophils and elevated hemoglobin?

Maybe Infection.: The elevation of neutrophils coukl mean bacterial infection, as these cells are important in fighting this kind of infection. The high hemohlobin seems nonspecific, in abscence of other symptoms and signs. It could possibly mean a polycythemia, one of the porphorias, or a myeloproliferative disorder, which could explain the high neutrophils. It can also be from high altitude. See dr. For more. ...Read more

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
