Blood test results. Lym% 44 gran% 48.4 what does this mean? 25year old female

Nothing: Labs mean nothing whatever in the absence of a clinical history and physical exam. Especially, relative percentages of lymphocytes and granulocytes is junk data that, frankly, I wish the labs wouldn't even report. The absolute counts of both lymps and monocytes fluctuate wildly hour by hour, and i'd draw no conclusion. I hope some other finding will reveal the true cause of your chronic fatigue. ...Read more

Suffering with dehydration, no amount of water seems to make me feel better. Awaiting blood test results but what can I do or take in the mean time?

Dehydration can be true when you are losing more than ingesting such as in cases of vomiting or diarrhea or relative when you are putting out large amount of urine in cases of diabetes mellitus or insipidus. Until you have your tests done, there's not much I can suggest without more history data. ...Read more

Just got blood test results. My reticulocyte count was fine, but the "immature fraction" was high (0.19). What does this mean? Should I be concerned?

Anemia?: Reticulocyte count, corrected reticulocyte count, and reticulocyte production index are used to measure whether the bone marrow is responding adequately to the destruction of red blood cells in a hemolytic anemia. In severe anemia, reticulocyte maturation time is prolonged and considered in calculations, due to the bone marrow releasing immature forms. If you are not anemic, I wouldn't worry. ...Read more

When reading blood test results, what does the term "absolute" mean when in front of "white blood cell count"?

Complete Blood Count: The CBC counts the major cells types in the blood and gives a picture of health. Newer cell counters are able to accurately recognize several main classes of white bc, neutrophils, lymphocytes, monocytes and others. Thus the actual number of these cells can be counted in a given volume of blood- the absolute #. Older methods used the total WBC and then multiplied by the % for each type. ...Read more
