Explanation Of Neutrophil Lab Examination Results?
Want to ask, Yesterday my mother checked the Lab and the result was -Neutrophil Batang = 0That is what that means?
Hello David, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Different counting is a check that is used to find out the number of each white blood cell in a person's body.
Neutrophils are one of the five types of white blood cells found in the body that function to help overcome microorganism / germ infections that enter the body by destroying them.
Neutrophils themselves, if examined further using a microscope, based on their shape can be further divided into 2 types, namely stem neutrophils and neutrophil segments.
Stem neutrophils are a form of immature neutrophil cells that also function to help fight germs that enter the body, and in general, the normal percentage of the body that is used as an international reference is 0% -6% (may vary by reference each laboratory).
Based on the reference value used, it can be said that the results of your mother's examination are still within the range of normal values, however, the results of the type count examination of one white blood cell with other white blood cells are very interrelated so that the results may not be declared normal if it is adjusted again with the number of other types of white blood cells so that the reading of the results must be overall.
Therefore, it is highly recommended to consult the results of your mother's laboratory examination further with the doctor directly to also compare with your mother's current condition.
I hope this helps.
