Usually this indicates an active infection. The numbers stated won't tell where the infection is--only that it may be present. Usually we look at what type of neutrophils are elevated and can tell if the infection is brand new or has been present a little while. Depending on the presence of symptoms, we will often prescribe an antibiotic for active infections.

white cell count is 14000 with Neutrophils 9352 and Monocytes 1148 what could i have?

An elevated count of neutrophils is an indication of bacterial infection. Neutrophils are the most abundant type of white blood cells in mammals.

"neut" on a blood count result likely refers to neutrophils. Neutrophils are a type of white blood cell.

Scanty Neutrophils means that there is a small amount of neutrophils. Neutrophils are white blood cells that stain when dyed and often can tell a physician with test when someone is in the disease state.

Neutrophils are one of the types of white blood cells. A low white cell count may indicate that a person's immune system is vulnerable to infection.

what causes a white cell count of 3.6 and a neutrophils of 35 and lymphocytes 53 and eosinophils 4

Neutrophils are the most abundant type of white blood cells in humans. Having a count of 8000 or higher means that a high level of stress is placed on the body.

The white blood cell count measures the relative concentrations of white blood cells in a sample of blood - lymphocytes, basophils, neutrophils, megakaryocytes, eosinophils and monocytes.

Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) is a measure of the number of neutrophil granulocytes that are present in the blood. Neutrophils are a type of white blood cell that fight infection.

Polys are short for polymorphonuclear leukocytes also known as neutrophils. When someone has a blood test to test their differential white blood cell count and they results indicate high polys that the white blood cell count is high. White blood cells fight infection.

Neutrophils and lymphocytes are types of white blood cells that play an important role in providing immunity against infections. A low neutrophil count coupled with a high lymphocyte count can indicate a viral infection, autoimmune disease, or leukemia.

It could indicate that 76% of the white blood cells are neutrophils. However, you are advised to check with whoever carried out the test.

increased none segmented neutrophils in proportion to the total neutrophilic count

leukocytes OR NeutrophilsBetween Lymphocytes or Neutrophils, Neutrophils would be the answer-APEX

If your white blood cell count is high, this shows an infection, usually bacterial. If your neutrophil count is also high, this shows an acute infection, whereas if your macrophage count were to be high, this would show a chronic infection. An acute infection or inflammation means that it has had a duration of usually less than 2 weeks. A chronic infection lasts longer than 2 weeks. The difference is that the neutrophils are the first responders to inflammation and infection, then come the macrophages. The neutrophils have a shorter lifespan and the macrophages can live for a long time fighting infection. This is how you get the higher count of neutrophils with an acute infection, and the higher macrophages with chronic infection.

no, neutrophils are a type of white blood cell which fights infection, primarily bacterial infection. A high neutrophil count can therefore suggest the presence of a bacterial infection but may point to other things

Neutrophils (a type of white blood cell), percentage of them by volume among your complete blood Count.

84 is on the high side....most relative % range is 60-80%. Just may mean that you have a bacterial infection. Neutrophils are the White Blood Cells that are responsible for phagocytosis (eating bacteria). This value is not that important without your total white blood cell count. If it's 5-10K, you're in the normal range.

Bands indicate immature neutrophils. if there is an overwhelming infection, bands are released from bone marrow

Lower than normal levels of Neutrophils can be caused by a failure of the bone marrow to make enough neutrophils. It may also occur when white blood cells are destroyed faster than they can be produced.

reduced white cell count impacts on immune system.
