Question: Odd results, Highs and lows. Help please
|Mel02 - Sat Dec 10, 2005 3:19 am||
Okay so I recieved these results about two months after I had HIV testing done which came back fine. I am a female 22 years old
My WBC was high @ 17.6
My SEGS/ADIFF were also slighty high @ 81.7
What worries me is my LYMPHS that were very low @ 10.8
Also I have had some blood in my stool (red, not black) if that makes any difference and rather often bloody noses.
Please help out if you can, I lost my heath care right after I picked up my paper work.

Bright red blood in bowel movements may be related to several conditions, for example, hemorrhoids. Regardless this should be evaluated. You mentioned bloody noses, how was your platelet count? The abnormal results of your lab work warrants an evaluation by a Hematologist. There are many programs available for health assistance that offer care at a reduced cost or free, typically based on income guidelines and need. Here is a number that you may want to call to see what assistance is available in your area.
The California Uninsured Help Line (800-234-1317)
I sincerely hope you find this helpful.
