This is a question for your doctor to answer... we are knowledgeable about diabetes, but not about other medical issues on this forum. Blood cell counts aren't typical issues that come up in discussing diabetes, so I plead ignorance. But here are some websites that have some good information for you:

Info about the normal levels of white and red blood cells (you seem to fall in the normal range for both) --

Lymphocytes --

Hope this helps! If you are concerned, call your doctor and ask some questions.
