What does it mean if i have high wbc count, high segmented neutrophils, low lymphocytes, high neutrophils, low lymphocytes, high monocytes?

Nothing by itself: I'm a pathologist with a life devoted to lab testing and the mysteries of diagnosis. These results mean nothing apart from a human being and her health history & physical exam. These could be my labs after my first open-water swim of the season while it's still chilly. Reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside. How do you FEEL? I suggest you relax & ignore this. ...Read more

What do low lymphocyte, monocytes, and high neutrophils mean?

Need actual results: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the test is usually in the best position to do that. You did not provide the actual values, so it is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion. ...Read more

What could a high monocyte, low lymphocyte and a high neutrophils in a child mean?

What could a high monocyte, low lymphocyte and a high neutrophils in a child mean?

Symptoms?: It is very hard to give meaning to lab values without the clinical context (symptoms) and the exact lab values (how high or low). In general, what you describe could be due to an infection, perhaps caused by a bacteria. More information could be helpful. ...Read more

My neutrophil and monocyte are slightly low and lymphocyte is slightly high. what could it mean? Segmented neutrophil: 34.70, lymphocyte: 59; RDW: 15

Means nothing: These fluctuate wildly hour-to-hour. Unless they are way out of reference range, they mean nothing as long as all the cells appear basically normal. ...Read more

Should i worry high lymphocytes, monocytes/100 leukocytes, and platelet mean volume (38.5, 7.8, 10.6 respectv) and low neurtrophils/100 leukocytes 49?

Abnormal cell counts: Unfortunately, the numbers you present may be percentages & not total cell counts. When we interpret a CBC we look at total cell counts and the % of total whites made up of each cell line. These can vary w/infections, nutritional status, stress, medications, certain medical conditions..... Would be best to review the labs w/ your doc & get an educated interpretation based upon your presentation. ...Read more

I have low monocytes, lymphocytes, and high neutrophils. What should I do?

Big picture: If these are percentages, don't even pay attention. Don't worry about monocytes unless you are obviously seriously sick. If absolute lymphs are above 1000, or if total neutrophils below around 15000 without abnormal forms (many bands, toxic granulation) chances are it means nothing especially if you're not otherwise ill. Your physician knows how to interpret these. ...Read more

If WBC is high does that mean neutrophils monocytes and lymphocytes will be high too?

If WBC is high does that mean neutrophils monocytes and lymphocytes will be high too?

Not at all: Usually a high white count is due either to high neutrophils alone, or less often high lymphs alone. Do yourself a favor -- don't even look at your CBC unless you have a specialty interest. It's only one piece in the complex puzzle of diagnosis; little abnormalities seldom mean anything at all, and your physician has already taken the big abnormalities into account. ...Read more

Low CPK high white count low bilirubin and ALT high monocytes high neutrophils and low lymphocytes should I be concerned?

Low CPK high white count low bilirubin and ALT high monocytes high neutrophils and low lymphocytes should I be concerned?

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. Do you have any symptoms? Why were these tests done? The issue may not be appropriate for this forum and likely requires an in-person evaluation. ...Read more

What could a low WBC 2.5 (4 normal) , high monocytes 17 (normal below 12),, low lymphocyte, low abs neutrophil, , low abs lymphocyte be? I'm worried.

What could a low WBC 2.5 (4 normal) , high monocytes 17 (normal below 12),, low lymphocyte, low abs neutrophil, , low abs lymphocyte be?  I'm worried.

Your CBC: It's good that you're interested in your bloodwork, and nobody here can diagnose you or even say whether illness is present without more data, beginning with "How do you feel?" WBC absolute counts fluctuate wildly even from hour to hour. The best course may just be to repeat the count. Absolute neuts &/or lymphs below 1000 are worrisome but there's no danger until much lower levels. ...Read more
