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

What could a high monocyte, low lymphocyte and a high neutrophil 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 bacterium. 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

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

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?

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?

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

Is this important in the clinical pic of upper ab pain and fatty stools? High Neutrophils High Monocytes Low Lymphocyte High Immature Granulocytes (3)

Is this important in the clinical pic of upper ab pain and fatty stools?
High Neutrophils
High Monocytes
Low Lymphocyte
High Immature Granulocytes (3)

Blood test results: Upper abdominal pain and fatty stools may be due to gall bladder disease. High neutrophils and monocytes, low lymphocytes and high immature granulocytes may not mean that much in the context of your symptoms, but may be consistent with an infection. You should ask your doctor for more guidance. ...Read more

What does a high neutrophil count & low lymphocytes & monocytes indicate? Neutrophil %(76(. Anc(3.42), absolute lymph(0.95), absolute mono(0.05)

What does a high neutrophil count & low lymphocytes & monocytes indicate?  Neutrophil %(76(. Anc(3.42), absolute lymph(0.95), absolute mono(0.05)

Probably nothing: Most adults have an absolute lymphocyte count of 1.6 x 10^3 or more, but it fluctuates chaotically. The stress of minor illness can drop it briefly in the absence of any other problem. Your physician can advise you depending on your health otherwise and may choose no follow-up. Everyone is wise to be checked occasionally for hiv. ...Read more

What does high white blood cells, high neutrophils and low lymphocytes indicate? Monocytes and all others are normal

What does high white blood cells, high neutrophils and low lymphocytes indicate? Monocytes and all others are normal

Need more info: Lab results without a clinical history and exam are very difficult to interpret. Generally, however, elevated neutrophils with high WBC counts are seen in bacterial infection, but may also occur in patients on steroids, those with a variety of inflammatory conditions and so on. ...Read more

High neutrophils, low monocytes, low lymphocytes, normal basophils, normal eosinophils what could be the reason? Can this indicate teniasis?

Not likely: It would help to have the actual values. However, a normal blood count does not rule out teniasis. It would be better to examine a stool sample for segments or eggs. ...Read more

Low mpv (9.1), low neutrophil (34), high lymphocyte (48), high monocyte (9), high eosinophil (9). 17 yrs old li fraumeni female. Should I worry?

Low mpv (9.1), low neutrophil (34), high lymphocyte (48), high monocyte (9), high eosinophil (9).  17 yrs old li fraumeni female. Should I worry?

No: I often wish labs would not even report the percentages. Only the absolute values matter. The fact that you have li fraumeni means you must educate yourself about how to spot cancers early. This will greatly enhance your chances for a long, happy life. The only tip-off that a blood count will give is if there are abnormal cells circulating. ...Read more

What's your question: A blood test isn't a patient; you are. You didn't just wander into a phlebotomy office and make an impulse purchase. A doctor ordered the CBC for a reason. What was the reason?

11.6 wbc, 6.45 absolute neutrophils, 3.78 absolute lymphocytes, 0.95 absolute monocyte, 0.02 immature neutrophils. Lab mark them high. Causes?

11.6 wbc, 6.45 absolute neutrophils, 3.78 absolute lymphocytes, 0.95 absolute monocyte, 0.02 immature neutrophils. Lab mark them high. Causes?

May be none.: 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. Having said that, this count may be your normal. The count is only mildly increased and if you have no symptoms, do not be concerned. See this site for more info.

Normal: This CBC is within normal parameters. That said, it provides no evidence that the kid does not have a problem that does not affect the count. When using the site, the more info you submit about why the study was obtained, the better we can put it into that context and provide useful commentary. ...Read more

What does it mean when your WBC is 13.5 thousand/Mcl and Rdw 15.2%, neutrophils 7820 cells/Mcl, lymphocytes 4280 cells/mcl, and monocytes is 1020?

Nothing: These labs mean nothing in the absence of a clinical history of illness. If you feel well, and there are no abnormal cells reported, ignore them. I can scramble my CBC even more spectacularly after enjoying a cold-water swim. As a pathologist who's devoted my life to lab medicine, I know how to look for disease in lab values, and when not to. If you're not sick, these labs are meaningless. Relax. ...Read more

Male 38: are anti-retro viral drugs helpful for low wbc? My WBC is bw 2.8-3.4. Basophile 1; monocytes 6; eosinophil 3; lymphocyte 44; neutrophil 2

Anti-retrovirals: Are used to treat HIV infections. Most HIV patients have normal WBC counts, but abnormal subsets of lymphocytes (cd-4 cells). See your doctor to assess whether your WBC count is normal, or needs follow up with more testing. ...Read more

Wbc count: 14.69. Absolute Neutrophils: 12.74. Absolute Lymphocytes: 0.93. Absolute monocytes: 0.94. Absolute eosinophils: 0.00. What do they mean?

Any symptoms?: Why was the blood tested? Do you have any symptoms? Your neutrophil count is elevated which usually suggests infection, but if you have no fever or other indication of an infection, you may ignore it.
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. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex.
Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
