Explanation Of Blood Test Results?
Tonight, I want to ask, not long ago, my blood test continues, the results are like this: Eosinophils 0 Stems 0 Segments 48 Lymphocytes 46 Platelets 439000 Is the result normal or not? The thing is, I also have a lot of headaches that really hurt, so I can’t even do heavy activities or even just stand up for a long time because I sometimes faint.
Hello, thank you for consulting with us at HealthReplies.com. In blood consists of blood serum and three important particles namely red blood cells / erythrocytes, white blood cells / leukocytes and platelets / pieces of blood. The blood element you mentioned is the smallest part of leukocytes / white blood cells and blood platelets or platelets.
White blood cells function in the human immune system, so that if the levels are lacking in the blood, it will cause the body to be vulnerable to infections, be it bacteria, parasites or viruses. White blood cells / leukocytes are divided into several types with each function that is not much different that is both working in the immune system.
neutrophils: the normal number is 55-70% of the total number of white blood cells, neutrophils function in attacking all antigens that enter the body, especially caused by bacterial infection basophils: its role is more prominent as attacking substances that cause allergies and producing histamine which plays a role in the response inflammation against allergic attacks. The basophil content in collapsed is less than 0.5% of the total number of lymphocyte leukocytes: the part of leukocytes that play a role against bacterial, viral, and cancerous infections. Normally the level of lymphocytes in the body is around 1300 to 4000 in the blood or about 20-44% of the total number of leukocytes, which function in the body's immune related to antibody production. Eosinophils: account for about 1-2% of the total number of leukocytes in the body, and function in response to allergies from parasitic infections, collagen diseases and diseases of the spleen and central nervous system of monocytes: white blood cells that have the largest size, but the fewest , around 200-800 cells per mm3 in the bloodstream. Functioning in digesting foreign particles that enter the body which is usually caused by injury. While for platelets the normal range is around 150,000 to 45,000 per microliter of blood. So that if returned to the value that you submit, the platelet level is still relatively normal. And the value of other leukocytes is also still within normal limits. We also advise you to go back to the doctor who referred you for the blood check, so that the doctor can evaluate your health condition in accordance with the examination he did and crosscheck with the laboratory results.
It is possible that your headache is a headache that is not caused by other medical conditions (primary headaches). Where headaches according to the type of pain are divided into three, namely:
