Question: High Lymphocytes, Low Neutrophils and thyroid.


 Alexandra P - Wed Jan 21, 2009 6:23 pm

Hi

I have been having my blood tested for years and I always get high Lymphocytes and low Neutrophiles

In particular my latest blood tests are

WBC 4.2 (NORMAL RANGE 4.0-10)

NEUT 39.8% (40-74 NORMAL RANGE) VALUE 1.7
LYM 48.9 ( 20-45 NORMAL RANGE) VALUE 2.1
MONO 7.3% (2-9 NORMAL RANGE)
EO 4.0% ( 1-6 NORMAL)

I have been recently diagnosed with Hashimotos disease but i am on levothyroxine for the past 3 years. I have been having this kind of results for more than 3 years. Also we have family history of Leukopenia ( bone marrow disease ) but I am not sure if that is relevant or indeed alarming.

Please advise if you think that I should see a doctor about the results above

Much appreciated

Your lymphocyte count is normal.
You have a slight neutropenia which could be familial in your case.
There seems to be nothing to worry about.
Please follow up with your CBC &take care to avoid infections.
