Need to find the cau: We need to find the cause first? You doctor can help you investigate the cause. Sometime sit is mild increase due to a virus infection in which case it will settle down itself. If it is a very high lymphocycte count which persists or keeps going up, then more serious causes need to be considered and a specialist (hematologist) involved in the diganosis and future guidance. ...Read more

Always counted: The count is never the entire story. It is only one out of many clues to a correct diagnosis. Whether the lymphocytes appear normal is also important. ...Read more
I had blood work done, everything was in "standard range" except for my lymphocyte% was slightly below "standard" it was19.7% should I be worried?
Don't worry: Sliughtly low percentage of lymphocytes is not usually significant. ...Read more
Good evening, I am concerned because I just have my blood count back and my hematologyst told me my lymphocytic count is low, what does that mean?
Many causes: There are many causes of lymphocytopenia (low lymphocyte count). Your hamatologist should talk to you about further testing depending on how low the count is and if it has always been present (inherited diseases) or is it a new finding. Talk to your doctor. There must be a reason you were referred to a hematologist. Good luck. ...Read more
My lymphocyte percentage was low on blood work but the # was in normal range...my NE% and NE# was high...I am a person who stresses should I worry?
See below: If your White Blood Count is normal probably not. Would review this info with your doctor. ...Read more
1 blood counts do the results need to be in the middle of range ex lymphocytes. 9 to 3.5 or not? 2. If not how do u tell if a disease is starting
Complicated: We look at the serial in relation to clinical and physical symptoms. ...Read more
No: Percentages never mean anything. All that matters is absolute counts, and if the individual cells all look normal and you're fairly near reference range, stop worrying. The ranges are set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside. ...Read more
I just got blood work done my Neutrophlis was 27.0 and my Lymphocytes was 61.0. What does this mean?
More info: Without your absolute numbers (you have given percentages) and any other health issues and medications, this information is not possible to interpret. Please send more information. Thanks. ...Read more
Margie had a blood test recently with the results that her segmenters are 46% and lymphocytes are 54%?
Need more info:
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. Why was the test done? Does she have any symptoms? The relative lymphocyte count is high and that can happen due to many causes, e.g., viral infection, and whooping cough.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

I have done blood test, but in differential lucocytes count, lymphocytes is 40.3%.is it ok r any problem?
Probably normal: Just a tiny bit over 40% which is the upper limit of normal. Within scientific error or increased due to a viral infection. If you are worried, ask to have it repeated. Even without insurance, the test costs $25 or less. Might be worth peace of mind, but I think it is ok. ...Read more
In lymphocyte phenotyping of periferial blood, what is the normal percentage for Kappa and Lambda light chains?
0.26-1.65 K/L ratio: Free light chains will normally be present in the blood at low levels, with a kappa/lambda ratio of about 0.26 to 1.65. Increased kappa free light chains and a higher kappa/lambda ratio may mean a plasma cell disorder producing excess monoclonal kappa chains. Increased lambda free light chains and a lower kappa/lambda ratio may mean a plasma cell disorder producing excess monoclonal lambda chains. ...Read more
Recently I have gone through complete blood test. And lymphocytes count is 46%. Is it sign of having any disease.
I'll bet not: Percentages of white cells mean nothing apart from the absolute values. These absolute numbers in fact fluctutate wildly and if your neutrophils are in a reasonable range and you're not obviously ill, i'd not give this another thought. ...Read more
I got my blood work back and it says my imm gran is 0.00 and my lymphocyte is 45.0 is that OK or should I be concerned?
I went for blood test. Lymphocytes are 3.9. 10 9 g/l. They said it's fine. But on the net I find 3.5 or 4.1 being normal reference? Which one?
Does each individual have a fixed lymphocyte count every time we take a blood test or are they suppose to fluctuate. If so what is the max fluctuation?
Lymphocyte count fluctuates greatly within a certain range under normal circumstances depending on the situation.
They are mostly immune cells which respond to foreign invasion and thus the intensity will depend on the specific situation. ...Read more
Calculate absolute #: It is not the percentages of blood cells that determine if they are high or low, but, rather the absolute count. For example, if your total white blood cell count is 3000 and the lymphocytes are 60%, the total lymphocytes are 1800, which s normal. ...Read more
Different ways: Although the word leukemia refers to cancerous white cells in the blood, many times the disease is growing so fast in the bone marrow that these cells never enter the blood and also, since they crowd out normal blood cells in the marrow, these are also decreased or absent in the blood leading to problems with infection, bleeding profound weakness. ...Read more
Lymphocyte count: It means that out of a total 3500 white blood cells, the lymphocyte count was 61% so roughly about 2100. (2100 of 3500 cells are lymphocytes) so you have a slight lymphocytosis in setting of leukopenia. It could be viral or just a normal variant. Get another CBC checked in 3-4 months. Thanks. ...Read more
Many possibilities: What is the absolute count? It may be low yet still within the normal limits. Causes of low lymphocyte count, not in any particular order are: active tb, uremia, lymphomas, hodgkin's disease, autoimmune disorders, immune deficiency syndromes, chemotherapeutics, glucocorticoids, malnutrition and more. It would be prudent to consult the doctor who ordered the test. ...Read more
