What Is The Result Of Cbc Wbc Count In Sepsis
Diagnosed with pid. Cbc, WBC count and ESR blood tests are normal. Does thismean I do nit have pid? Can PID be misdiagnosed and with what?

I just got my CBC results back. My WBC count was listed as low at 3.9 and neutrophil percentage was listed as low at 48 percent. What could this be?
May be normal: I would not be alarmed by this. Your WBC is not far from normal. Your absolute neutrophil count is within normal limits. I would just repeat it in 6-8 weeks or sooner if you would feel more comfortable. Roughly 6-12% of the population have a low WBC and may be a normal variant. It just needs to be checked again to assess stability. Hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
When an exam of vaginal discharge yields white blood cells, does that mean a CBC would show a low WBC count?
No: The body produces and distributes white cells as needed. The white blood cells most often found in the vaginal discharge are neutrophilic polymorphonuclear leukocytes, and these are called 'blood cells' simply because they're easily obtained from blood (where they travel) but visit many sites while on their tours of duty. ...Read more
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: 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. ...Read more
I have a high WBC count. I'm not sick. I'm redoing CBC tomorrow morning. If still high my knee surgery will be postponed. What can I do?
I have been very very fatigued & weak & foggy headed feeling and had a CBC done and my WBC count was 14,000 & my Neutrophils were 10,000. What could be going on?
Get evaluated: Your WBC/neutrophils are slightly elevated. Infection, inflammation, drug (steroid), smoking, or blood conditions, etc can all potentially cause the elevated WBC. It can also be physiological. Without knowing your history and compete CBC (Hb, platetet, etc), it is difficult to narrow the diagnosis. Given that you are experiencing significant fatigue/weakness, I suggest you be evaluated. ...Read more

My husband is coughing blood in sputum occassionally. Chest xray is normal cbc shows low wbc count which is 3000 my doc says not to worry but concernd?
Hmmm...: I'm always a little concerned about coughing up blood. The low WBC may be from a viral infection which could possibly cause the sputum problem. I would expect that to resolve in 10-14 days. If he still has cough, blood in the sputum I would see the doctor again. Also, it is always reasonable to recheck the WBC in 2-4 weeks to see if it's back to normal. If not, another cause needs to be found ...Read more
Low WBC, low abs neurophils, and low anion gap w/o K. All other results of CMP and CBC w/diff. normal. Cause for concern?
Why tested?: 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, it would have helped to have the actual values rather than your interpretation of low and high. It would be better to discuss it with the doctor who ordered the tests as s/he knows more about your health. 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
