What Is High For Lymphocytes
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. ...Read more

Need workup: Sed rate is never worth a workup unless there's symptoms / signs. High RBC's -- WAY above the top of the reference range -- suggests thal minor if hemoglobin / hematocrit are okay / lowish, one of the polycythemias if they are also high. These in turn can be due to anything from p vera rubra to sleep apnea to a high-affinity hemoglobin to COPD to a right-to-left heart shunt. ...Read more
Variable diagnosis: This could be a due to a number of things.Proper treatment would require an identification of the cause through exam and testing before a treatment plan could be formulated. The eosinophils are up some in allergies, up a lot in some parasite infections, and very high in some blood disorders. The plan should originate from the doc who knows the kid the best, or his/her referral source. ...Read more
High Calcium Levels: The treatment for a high creatinine (c) level depends on what caused it. If it were due to drugs like nsaid's, stopping them would lower it. If it were due to some obstruction of the urinary tract, relief of that obstruction, if done soon enough, would lower the c level. See a neprhologist to be evaluated for the cause of your elevated c and to find out if it can be lowered. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
What does it mean for a kid if WBC and RBC count is normal while differential is not ( neutrophils low, monocytes a bit high, eosinophils high ) ?
Type of white cell: Monocytes are one of the principal type of white blood cell. In tissues they mature into macrophages and histiocytes, cells that eat up dead tissue, eat up pathogenic organisms, and have important roles otherwise in presenting antigens to lymphocytes. High monocyte counts likely indicate certain viral infections, such as mononucleosis, or other conditions with immune reactions. ...Read more
WBC: This is above normal, but by no means "high." If you do not have any clinical signs or symptoms of infection or systemic illness then this may just be normal variation. ...Read more
Usually nothing: The two physicians have already told you the truth -- only the absolute counts matter, and i would rather labs didn't report percentages at all. Only if polys and/or lymphs are far from the reference range is there any reason to be concerend. If the polys are below 1000, a workup is perhaps in order, starting with reviewing you medications. Below 500 is getting dangerous. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

What would cause high neutrophil count and low lymphocyte count with a total wbc of 8? Is it cancer?!
No it is Not Cancer!: A WBC count of 8, made of neutrophils can not be cancer related. So you should not think about Cancer that much. If you feel well, you should ignore this report. If you want a more exact answer, then you need to send us the complete report of the numbers of cell in your CBC. ...Read more
Lots of B cells: A lymphocyte enumeration is a count of the lymphocytes in your blood. Lymphocytes primarily include t-cells, b-cells, and nk-cells. B-cells are identified by cd19, a marker on their surface. Have the doctor who ordered the test help you interpret the result. The number of b-cells (how how the cd19 count is), your age, blood vs bone marrow, and your symptoms help him/her interpret the results. ...Read more
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
