Hello
Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 11 months ago

Well it can happen with a viral infection like flu so tje values being only fractionally low then normal range shouldnt be too much of a concern. You can have a repeat test in a months time to make sure everything is back to normal.

Nothing related to cancer here, relax

what about the neutrophills level at 1.9?
Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 11 months ago

Yes its just a fraction low ,the normal lower limit is 2 so its just 0.1lesser then normal. Neutopenia is defined when its lesser then 1.5 so nothing alarming for now

Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 11 months ago

Some people have lower-than-average neutrophil counts, but not an increased risk of infection. In these situations their neutropenia isn't a concern. Neutrophil counts less than 1,000 neutrophils per microliter — and especially counts of less than 500 neutrophils per microliter — are always considered to be neutropenia, where even the normal bacteria from your mouth and digestive tract can cause serious infections.

1000 meaning 1 and 500 meaning 0.5 in the units you mentioned
