In brief: Means nothing

Lupus patients often run a relatively low absolute neutrophil account because of autoimmunity.
That's the number to watch. Only if it goes way-low is it a danger. I'm glad you're proactive about this. Best wishes.

Thanks for the follow-up. Ignore percentages altogether. Look only at the absolute number count. Neutropenia in lupus is worth following and a drop below 1000 in the absolute count may be troublesome.
