High WBC and neutrophils, low lymphocytes

I recently had a couple tests done and some of my levels were out of the normal range. My WBC 11.8 high, red cell distribution 16.3 high, segmented neutrophils 84.4 high, lymphocytes 11.7 low. Any ideas on what could be causing this?

Hi Melissa,
Welcome to MedHelp :)

WBC is only slightly elevated (is the dr. concerned w/ this?)

RDW (red cell distribution)
IF RDW is high, but MCV is normal: rule out low vit B12 or folic acid, iron deficiency anemia (early stages)

Neutrophils too high: rule out stress, pain, very high or very low body temperatures, drugs such as cortisone, strenuous exercise, bacterial infections, and increased heart rate and increased blood pressure.  When neutrophils increase w/ stress, the neutrophil count goes up and the leukocyte count decreases at the same time.

Low lymphocytes addressed in the above neutrophil.

What kind of symptoms are you having?
