Please tell me how old you are and what health issues you have?
age 65, type 2 diabetic, high blood pressure (these are treated with medicationsa0
Ok please can you reconfirm your neutrophil count and i would also like to know lymphocyte count?
neutrophils 75, neutrophils absolute 8.2, do you mean lymphs if so 19, lymphs absolute 2.1
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.
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?
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.
