Explanation Of The Results Of Examination Of Low Lymphocyte Counts
Sorry, I want to ask, I 35-year-old woman yesterday I just checked the number of my lymphocytes only 9 That’s how it is, for the standard number of lymphocytes, huh?
Hello Eccaseptia, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your questions.
Lymphocytes are a type of white blood cell. Where one of its functions is to fight infections / germs that enter the body. Lymphocytes consist of three types, namely B cells, T cells, and natural killers.
Responding to the question you give, what if the number of lymphocytes in the blood is low or this condition is called lymphopenia. Lymphopenia can cause a person's immune system to fall, so it will be more susceptible to being infected with the disease. But that does not mean it is very vulnerable, lymphocytes are one of the many human defense systems in the blood. Based on your 9% score, I can't be sure it's low or normal. That is because the reference values for each laboratory are different due to different methods, or different tools. You can see the normal value on the paper that you get that says "reference value"
Some things that can cause lymphopenia include:
Autoimmune diseases, such as Lupus
HIV infection (human immunodeficiency virus), where the number of certain lymphocyte cells continues to decline.
Bacterial and fungal infections.
Lack of nutritional intake.
Side effects of chemotherapy.
Having blood cancer, or other blood disorders.
Right now what you can do is:
Get enough rest, and eat nutritious foods to increase your immunity.
Avoid excessive stress.
Take a multivitamin.
Consult your doctor, and find out why your lymphocytes are low.
Avoid crowded places for a while.
Use a mask.
Wash your hands always before, and after the activity.
Eat vegetables and fruits because it can increase immunity too.
Exercise regularly to maintain physical fitness.
That's all the answers I can give, thank you very much :)
