Customer Question

thank you. I am aware of the CHR, which varies slightly depending on source, but my question was about identifying the point at which the CML moves from Chronic to Acute to Blast - specifically how to read/understand my tests, what they are telling me, and what is a "normal" fluctuation in the WBC readings. I can upload a PDF or Excel sheet with my summarized test results from June 2015 to Oct 7, 2016 (12 total - peaked at 89.5, recently 47).
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

I am a cancer doctor.

sorry you have CML

a peripheral blood smear or bone marrow biopsy can detect blast and report them on the test results.

your WBC count is very high at 89.5k
