Thank you for clarifying,
Looking at the reference ranges for your lab, as you mentioned, the elevations are so small that they likely have no clinical significance.
We can see an elevation of neutrophils when someone has an underlying inflammatory disorder such as rheumatoid arthritis..your underlying arthritis nodule, if autoimmune
in origin, may be the source of the mild elevation.
Bacterial infections also cause an elevation of the granulocytes. If you become ill over the next few days, that would explain the abnormal labs.
I would simply repeat the test in a few months.
