Hello my name is***** am a board-certified physician and I am happy to help you. A monocyte level of 15,4% is slightly elevated but no particular cause for concern. (Normal range of about 0-13%) Monocytes typically rise during a viral infection. Your antibiotics will cover possible bacteria that may be causing your 6 days of diarrhea.Do you have any other questions or concerns I can help with?

This is Dr. David

I am not worried about your percent of monocytes at 15.4%.

this is not dangerous and doesn't point to medical problems.

make sure you take your antibiotics with food in your stomach

and make sure you drink plenty of water to prevent dehydration.

I hope your diarrhea symptoms get better

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
