What Does It Mean When Your Wbc Is Low
What does it mean if your WBC is low and your lymphs are high and neutrophils are low what does this mean?
Ask your doctor to e: Your doctor is expected to explain what numbers of wmc/neutrophils you have and what it means. I would need to know the actual numbers to be able to interpret this information in your case. Get to know what is normal and what is low and how low it is? Normal WBC count is between 4, 000 to 10, 000 and about half of these numbers should be neutrophils. What are your numbers? ...Read more
What dose it mean when your WBC high at 12.6
my segmented neutrophils is high 88.5
my lymphocytes is low 6.9?
Not very high: but the high neutrophils suggest that you do have an infection somewhere. ...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
What is possible if your WBC, neutrophil absolute, and neutrophil % is high, and lumphocytes are low?
Usually benign: There are many causes for an increased white count and increased neutrophils, but the most common is an infection. The more concerning causes for increased WBC are ususally associated with other blood cell abnormalities, such as immature or abnormal-looking WBCs. If the WBC is very high, it should be rechecked to make sure it goes back down to normal. ...Read more
Unlikely...: First, WBC counts of 10k vs. 11k are essentially the same. Such a modest difference is unlikely to be clinically significant. However, more important could be the change in the differential. For example, a significant rise in neutrophil percentage accompanied by a fall in lymphocytes could give nearly the same total WBC count yet indicate profoundly different clinical scenarios.

What illness would cause your wbc, platelets, and neutrophils to be low and lymphocytes to be high and then switch after a couple months?
I recently had a CBC with differential. Can your t-cells be low if your wbc, rbc, platelets, and all lymphocytes were normal? Wouldn't these be lower?
Not necessarily: It would be useful to have the actual counts. A normal WBC count at the low end may still be accompanied by low t cells. 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. ...Read more
Varies: If a patient has leukemia (white blood cell cancer) it may be very high, in the 100ks. It could also be low with the same diagnosis. Solid tumors can sometimes elevate the WBC if they get necrotic or infected but if the patient is on chemo, they may be low or normal. Confused enough? In a nutshell, it depends on the situation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
LOW WBC: You should know why it is low and if it is pathology or normal variation. If it is from a marrow problem, you need to find out what that is. If it is from treatment, it may or may not be indicated. One needs to establish a diagnosis not treat a sign or symptom. ...Read more
Lab data: This is quite non-specific insofar as the info you have provided. It may not be due to infection, and many other things can elevate the neutrophile counts, including any inflammation, trauma, leukemia, and so on. You need to provide your symptoms and the remainder of the CBC values for this to have any meaning. ...Read more
If you had a severe infection, would you expect your WBC count to be closest to 5, 000 or 15, 000/mm3?
See below: Usually 15000 but rarely can have low white blod cell count. ...Read more
What types of cancer will typically elevate your wbc? Some? All? Cbc useful in ruling out cancer?
In blood work what does it indicate if your WBC is 13.0, pmn 10.1, and sodium is 133 everything else is normal.
Near normal: Wbc and pmns are slightly elevated and sodium is slightly low. Please note that all lab 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. ...Read more
