What does it mean when the lymph% is low on a cbc test?

How low?

Cbc
The total count and proportion of lymphocytes needs to be looked at. All lab 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. See this site for more info. http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/health-topics/topics/lym/

What does it mean in my CBC test if my WBC count is 10.8, MCHC is 300, PDW is 15.8 , Lymphocytes is 27.2?

Not much

Complete_blood_count
You have a WBC in the range of the upper limit of normal. Have you had a recent infection? None of these values are of concern, and interpretation without the clinical context is problematic

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, your WBC count is lower than normal and you should discuss it with your doctor.

If you do a blood test and the doctors say they see a little suger in your blood...does that mean i have diabetes? It was a CBC I did...

Ask 4 clarification

Sugar in the blood could mean pre or borderline diabetes (fasting blood sugar 100-125 mg/dl) or diabetes (equal or more than 126 mg/dl) .CBC is complete blood count and won't show blood sugar count.Take care!

Hi recently got tested for cbc,in that test got high lymphocytes count4.22; range 1.0-3.0. What does that mean? Have sore throat for 5 months.help

Need for evaluation

Neck-throat
Your lymphocyte count is high and needs investigation, including a detailed history, physical examination and may be additional tests. Sore throat for five months is too long without seeing a doctor. Please consult your doctor and consult this site for possible causes of lymphocytosis. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/lymphocytosis/MY00360
