Welcome to Justanswer!

Why was the test done?

Can I have the result of the test results?


Customer: replied 8 years ago.
I did a complete blood work at a health fair for me to later take to my doctor cause I am planning to changed doctors and save on blood work. I am healthy with all blood work within range wxcept for the above and I am curious until I make appointment with my new doctor.

Sorry for that error... it should have read "rest of the test results".

H stands for "High"

Did they give the reference range for those tests?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.

Yes H stands for high. the range for monocyte is 4-11and mine is 12.4

The range for ld(u/l) is 110-250 and mine is 264

do you need all my results?

There are five types of white blood cells - Neutrophil, eosinophil, basophil, monocyte and lymphocyte.

The normal monocyte count is 4-11 as you have mentioned. It is high in your case. High count is seen in the recovery phase of many acute infections. It is also seen in diseases like TB, syphilis, brucellosis, Crohn's disease, and sarcoidosis, ulcerative colitis, systemic lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, polyarteritis nodosa, and many hematologic neoplasms.


LD stands for lactic dehydrogenase. Elevated levels denote tissue damage.Its level can be increased in anemia, malignancy, liver disorder, kidney disorder, heart attack, stroke.

Consult your doctor for evaluation.
