Handling When Hematologic Results Show Values where The Normal Limit?
If the hematology results show a segment value of 76% where the normal limit is written 36-66%, what is the effect on the patient’s health and does this need serious handling? Or still tolerable? thank you
Neutrophils are a part of white blood cells / leukocytes. Neutrophils function to maintain the immune system and fight infections. Neutrophils are produced in the bone marrow and channeled through the bloodstream.
Neutrophils can be calculated with a blood test. An increase in the number of neutrophils can indicate a particular disease, but the patient's condition cannot only be seen from the results of neutrophils and still must pay attention to other parameters, such as complaints submitted, physical examination results, and other supporting examination results.
Some of the causes of increased neutrophils include infections (bacteria, viruses, fungi), physical injury, rheumatoid arthritis, rheumatic fever, thyroid inflammation, gout, leukemia, acute stress, smoking habits, excessive exercise, heart problems, and eclampsia in pregnant mother.
Do you feel complaints in your body? To confirm your condition, I suggest that you bring your lab test results to the doctor directly and tell them if you experience complaints. The doctor will carry out further tests to ascertain whether there are certain conditions for you and provide further treatment that is more appropriate when needed.
Meanwhile to maintain a healthy body, you should adopt a healthy lifestyle with adequate rest, regular exercise, consumption of healthy and nutritious foods, avoid stress, and avoid smoking and alcohol.
Hope it helps you,
