From blood work: Monocytes 14.0%, absolute 0.7, TSH 5.0. Should I be concerned?
Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.

yes.

your TSH level is too high and should be between 0.3 and 3.0

TSH of 5.0 is a sign of hypothyroidism where your body is not making enough thyroid hormone.

you need to see an endocrinology hormone doctor and get a full evaluation of your thyroid gland to see why your thyroid hormones are low.

monocyte percentage and absolute monocyte levels are fine.

do you have an appointment to see an endocrinology doctor?
