Hematology Examination Results?
, I want to know an explanation of the following medical check up results:
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Blood tests are one of the supporting tests that are often performed because there are many available and a lot of information can be taken from them, one of which is information about the infection.
White blood cells or leukocytes are a part of the immune system, and will show different responses specifically to certain infections. Normal leukocyte levels range from 4.4-11.3 x 10 ^ 3 / uL, which in your case, you are still in the normal range. This range number, both on the leukocyte examination and in all other laboratory tests without exception, can indeed vary the exact normal value in each laboratory, but this difference will not be significant and will not change the results. If the levels are high, the condition is called leukocytosis and can occur due to bacterial infection, smoking, arthritis, anxiety, and chronic illness.
Then next regarding the sedimentation rate, this is a test that is done to determine how fast the blood is slow to settle in a special tube. This examination is performed to determine the presence or absence of inflammation in the patient's body, but it does not specify where the inflammation is, only whether it is present or not. The normal rate is <15-30 mm / hour, depending on age, sex and again, the laboratory is doing it. In your case, this parameter also shows normal results.
Furthermore, for neutrophils and lymphocytes, both of which these parameters are part of white blood cells, which have normal values of 40-60% and 20-40%, respectively. In the results you have there is a slight increase in neutrophils and a slight decrease in lymphocytes. This condition can be caused by a bacterial infection, gout, muscle or bone injury, arthritis, thyroid disease and blood cancer, or it can be a normal condition, depending on your physical examination and clinical appearance.
So that our advice, the answers you will get will be more specific and suitable for you if you convey these results to the doctor who examined you directly or the doctor who asked for this support beforehand. Your doctor will combine these results with direct examination, and possibly with other support, to get a solid diagnosis. The handling that you will receive later will depend on the results of this examination.
Meanwhile, keep living a healthy lifestyle, drink lots of water, avoid smoking and stress, take regular breaks, eat healthy foods, and get enough exercise. So, hopefully it answers your question.
