I just had some intensive bloodwork done and everything was great and within range except about half of the CBC (blood makep) test. WBC and RBC counts were perfectly within range but the following were low: Hemoglobin, hematocrit, MCV, MCH, but they were just slightly low and I attribute this to just getting my extreme bleeding to stop 2 months prior to the test. On a good note, every thing seemed fine like cholesterol, protein, sodium, calcium, potassium, thyroid, etc...
What I really thought was strange was my absolute lymphocytes being 840L when the range is 850-3900 cells/uL. It's also slighty below the range but shouldn't my lymphocytes be high since I am not on immune suppresents or any other prescription drugs for that matter. Well I'm just curious what you all think about lymphocytes.
