Hello,Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** am reading your question and will be back with you ASAP.
Lymphocytes are a type of white blood cell. The reference range (what each lab considers normal based on the equipment they use) should be listed next to your result. At my lab, normal is 1.0 to 3.5, for instance, and yours would be perfectly normal.
It depends on how high is high at your lab and what your result actually was. Small amounts over what the lab considers normal are usually meaningless. Higher levels would need to be investigated to see what is causing the problem.
And what is the reference range at your lab?
At my lab, normal is 12-300 ng/mL for men and 12-150 ng/mL for women. Higher than normal levels can be from an iron storage disease called hemachromatosis. The treatment for that is an occasional blood draw. It can also signal liver disease, rheumatoid arthritis, or other things.
Please let me know what additional questions you have about this.
