WBC Count is 12.5 and Absolute Lymphocytes 4250. This is not the first test to have high results. Should I be worried?

Lab data: It is difficult to know whether or not you should worry. This a lab result, divorced from clinical relevance. It you develop symptoms then you might want to follow this up. In addition, you do not mention any of the other values on a CBC, which might have been helpful, but even then, without history and exam, difficult to know. Read more

Hi, Elevated LYMPHOCYTOSIS 51.5 Elevated absolute lymphocytes count is 4.91 Elevated ESR Westergren 14 MCV 82.3 PCV 39.6 TSH is 6.9 I am worried?

Hi, Elevated LYMPHOCYTOSIS 51.5 Elevated absolute lymphocytes count is 4.91 Elevated ESR Westergren 14 MCV 82.3 PCV 39.6 TSH is 6.9 I am worried?

What worries you?: These labs are close to normal. Unless you have a suspected illness, you should not have them done. Your TSH is slightly high, so it should be rechecked to make sure it does not rise further (which may indicate hypothyroid condition). Lymphocyte counts often go up with a viral illess like flu but it is temporary and reverts back to normal within one or two months. Let you doctor guide you further Read more

I have an elevated sedimentation rate, elevated white blood cell count, elevated absolute neutrophils, elevated absolute lymphocytes, & low iron level?
