Hello,Thanks for using Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will do whatever I can to try to help you.
Please post the results, along with the reference range beside each.
Happy to help. It looks like you may have or be getting a slight cold or other virus. None of these is seriously outside the reference ranges.
Neutrophils, lymphocytes, and eosinophis are three of the five types of white blood cells. Basophils and monocytes are the other two. When one or more is up, others are usually down.
There is certainly nothing in the results to worry about.
Reference ranges or averages will always only account for 2/3 of people. The rest when they are just a bit outside of the reference range, may be completely healthy and the results are normal for them. In any event these aren't enough out of normal to raise an eyebrow about.
If you check again in a few weeks, they should be back within reference range.
All the best,
Yes, that sounds like exactly what it is. You're getting a slight upper respiratory or maybe a sinus infection. The numbers certainly don't indicate anything like cancer. You can quit worrying about the blood test results. Try some hot tea with honey and lemon if the drainage gets bad. It soothes your throat and even helps the coughing that usually comes along with drainage.
Hope you feel better soon.
Nope, you don't need to worry about lymphocytes of 10.
Triglycerides are fats in the blood stream before they are deposited as fats elsewhere in the body. We like for them to be under 150. A decrease in dietary fats ans simple carbohydrates along with an increase in exercise usually solves the problem without any medication when they are only 183. Total cholesterol all by itself isn't terribly useful. You need to look at the total lipid panel including LDL and HDL. Here are the expected readings.
Total cholesterol: below 200 mg/dL
LDL: below 100 mg/dL
Triglycerides: below 150 mg/dL
HDL: Above 50 mg/dL for men and above 60 mg/dL for women. The higher the better.
No, none of the results are cause for alarm. They are what you might expect for someone with a mild infection.
Yes it could. You are getting that drainage from somewhere - either an infection or allergies.
