Probably. True food poisoning is a short lived event. Your body reacts acutely to things like that by increasing neutrophils. Lymphocytes respond more slowly. Lower than normal total lymphocyte levels would be from something else. Neither of those findings are diagnostic and it's hard to tell without actually knowing the real numbers you have.
Hello. I just had a very bad food poisoning (temporarily living in India). The doctor here took a blood test to check for Dengue and Malaria. Came back negative, however my neutrophils count was high (88) and lymphocytes low (8). Is that normap durin?
High. neutrophils with low lymphocytes is seen in bacterial infections and in some EARLY viral infections. It seems to me that your specific problem involves a lot more possible infectious age than Dengue and Malaria (which is NOT a Gastrointestinal disease!!) Hope this is helpful Dr Z. Read more...
