Dr. Abid :

Hi there

Dr. Abid :

Please tell me how old you are and what health issues you have?

Dr. Abid :

Thanks.

Customer:

age 65, type 2 diabetic, high blood pressure (these are treated with medicationsa0

Dr. Abid :

Ok please can you reconfirm your neutrophil count and i would also like to know lymphocyte count?

Customer:

neutrophils 75, neutrophils absolute 8.2, do you mean lymphs if so 19, lymphs absolute 2.1

Dr. Abid :

Ok thanks for info as your total white blood cell count (w.b.c) is 11.1 which is slightly raised along with 75 % neutrophils its mean you have neutrophilic leucocytosis which indicates acute infection.

Customer:

i haven't been sick, other than possibly a cold within the last month. since the wbc was slightly raised, should another test be given or wait for my next lab work in 3 months?

Dr. Abid :

Sometime urinary tract infection that is common in diabetic patients can be the reason of raised white blood cell count even in the absence of symptoms ,so i will suggest you to please get urine test ,and after 2 weeks repeat blood CP.
