Inflammation
Normal range for absolute neutrophil count is: 1.5 to 8.0 (1,500 to 8,000/mm3), Inflammation/infection is the commonest cause of elevated neutrophil count.

I have high absolute neutrophils. whats this mean?

Hard to say

Leukemia
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

Dr. Laura McMullen answered:

What is absolute neutrophils and what does it mean when mine is high my absolute neutrophils level is high

Neutrophils

Neutrophils are white blood cells that help to fight bacterial infections. The absolute neutrophil count (ANC) is used to assess how many neutrophils a person has. A count that is too low can put you at risk for bacterial infections. A high count can indicate that your body is fighting an infection, or can be from an inflammatory injury such as a burn, heart attack or appendicitis. People who do not have a spleen also can have a higher than normal ANC. It can even be caused by medications (such as steroids) or stress. Very rarely a high ANC can indicate malignancy such as chronic myelogenous leukemia, but people usually have other signs and symptoms, also. Because of this very wide range of high ANC causes, the context in which the test was ordered and how high it actually is is very important. If you are worried about your test result, call the doctor that ordered the test and ask what they were looking for and if your high ANC is a concern.

The most common cause is something called viral suppression, where certain viral infections can transiently impair the bone marrow's ability to produce platelets, white blood cells and red blood cells. This will improve on its own as your body clears the infection. Less common, but serious causes include aplastic anemia or leukemia. Watchful waiting is OK if the person does not appear sick.

The laboratories that are off are just a tiny bit off, the only ones that are significant are the hemoglobin and hematocrit, as these labs show anemia. Anemia can be caused by iron deficiency, and other causes of low blood count. Ask your doctor of recommendations for your anemia.

What does low lymphocytes and high neutrophils mean?

Usually not much

Hiv
You do best to ignore the percentages that the lab reports. If you feel well and the absolute neutrophil count and the absolute lymphocyte count are within or fairly close to the lab's reference range (which includes most but by no means all healthies), stop worrying. Low lymphs usually means stress. I trust you know yourself to be HIV-negative. Best wishes.

What does it mean to have a high abs neutrophils count?

Usually an infection

Open-uri20130916-24106-t40i8a
The absolute neutrophil count is the product of the % neutrophils & total WBC. A high absolute neutrophil count is usually seen in many types of infections. Other causes are inflammatory conditions, stress, medications like steroids, lithium, injections like growth factors, Cushing's disease and sometimes some forms of chronic leukemia or myeloproliferative disorders ( blood disorder).
