My dad made blood test but the white blood cell range was high 23000 /lymphocites also high about 80 &segmented neutrophils 17.what should he do??

Hard to comment: He has mostly absolute lymphocytosis. If this was just a blood screen this is most likely chronic lymphocytic leukemia or CLL, which most of the time is a slowly progressive disease. If he was sick at the time of the test would just recommend follow-up CBC in couple of weeks. When was the last time he had normal cell counts? Would recommend seeing a hematologist if no acute sickness. ...Read more

My results say I have a value of 11.77 (white blood cell count) from a range of 4.16-9.95 and flag "H." Should I worry?

Follow it: A mnor illness, cold shower, or "unknown factors" can raise your white count. Reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either side. If you feel okay and the cells are normally formed, don't fret about it. ...Read more

I have had a series of fluctuating white blood cell counts: in the 3.0 range then 2.5 then 4.2. Should this be of concern? Is this up/down normal?

Hematologist: Low white counts such as yours are not necessarily serious if your red cell series and platelet counts are normal. Occasionally this pattern is seen in connective tissue disorders like lupus, however. A hematologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you and order the appropriate tests as well as arrange a proper follow-up schedule which is important. ...Read more

What are the ranges of white blood cell counts for different kinds of leukemia?

What are the ranges of white blood cell counts for different kinds of leukemia?

Wide range: Zero to "very high" (eg 100's of thousands). Leukemia undergoing treatment may result in a zero white blood cell (WBC) count. Some leukemias may have relatively normal total WBC but abnormal cells (blasts) in the differential. Other leukemias can develop very high WBC counts. So, a wide range is possible. ...Read more

What is normal range of white blood cell count?

What is normal range of white blood cell count?

4,000 - 10,000: This is somewhat dependent on ethnicity. The normal range for caucasions is 4, 000 - 10, 000/ cubic millimeter. People of color (blacks and asians) tend to have a lower wbc, and their normal may go down to 3, 000. The most prevelent WBC is a neutrophil, and there should be at least 1500 neutrophils for all ethnicities. ...Read more

Had a routine blood test. 28 year old female. White blood cell count is 9.8. Good range said 3.3 to 9.4. Atypical Lymphs is 5. Any cause for concern?

Had a routine blood test. 28 year old female. White blood cell count is 9.8. Good range said 3.3 to 9.4. Atypical Lymphs is 5. Any cause for concern?

No: 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, A few atypical lymphocytes are not a cause for concern. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco or alcohol in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Is 3.4 white blood cell count too low? What could be the problem? Lymphocytes, monocytes, and the rest were at noraml range..

Is 3.4 white blood cell count too low? What could be the problem? Lymphocytes, monocytes, and the rest were at noraml range..

Yes: You need to see an immunologist asap. You need a specialist to evaluate your immune system because something could be wrong. But, i say "could" because 3.4 might be normal for your body. But better to be safe than sorry. See an immunologist. ...Read more

I have a white blood cell count of 3.6, and absolute neutrophil of 1354... All other numbers in bloodwork are in normal range. Any reason for alarm ?

No: In the absence of moth sores or recurrent infections no need to work up a mildly low neutrophil count. This is very common in african americans and those of northern european ancestry. ...Read more

My white blood cell count is 5.9(with normal range of 4 and 11). I used fluticasone propionate inhaler for a month. could this interfere with results?

Unlikely: Considering your results, it's unlikely. But one way to learn more is to look at what's called the differential on that test. It lists a series of white blood cell types, including one called neutrophils. Steroids typically increase this level, so if if you look at your test and see a high neutrophil level, this could be due to the steroids. ...Read more

Ref. Range 4.0-11.0. My white blood cell count was 11.8. How likely is leukemia? I had a sinus infection and abd rash at the time.

Ref. Range 4.0-11.0. My white blood cell count was 11.8. How likely is leukemia? I had a sinus infection and abd rash at the time.

Not likely: A number of things can cause an elevated WBC including infections (like your sinus infection) and even just stress (mental or physical), so it would seem unlikely that just based on this you would have leukemia or any other serious condition. ...Read more
