high blood test counts

I recently had blood work done and I have been feeling generally unwell (nausea, headaches, tired etc.). I was wondering if these blood work numbers are something to be concerned with?

wbc = 12.6
neutrophils absolute = 7.2
lymphs absolute = 3,7
eos absolute = 0.7
glucose = 102
creatine = 1.05
triglycerides = 151
Ldl chol calc = 107

Hello~I am not a doctor or lab technician, so I really can not give you a clear answer on this.

However, I am wondering if this test was "fasting" or "non-fasting" If fasting, the glucose looks a wee bit high to me, not much, but higher than most doctors like it to be if you are fasting, the desired levels are under 100.

Your triglycerides are on the "border-line high" but only by one point, the doctors like it 150 and lower, however, some labs give a higher value than others.  LDL cholesterol levels should be less than 100 mg/dL. Levels of 100 to 129 mg/dL are acceptable for people with no health issues but may be of more concern for those with heart disease or heart disease risk factors.

As to the white blood cell counts, I really don't know at all. Again, your doctor will be better to ask.

As I said, I am just going by what I have read, each lab and physician will have different ideas as to what "normals" are, you values all look OK to me but for peace of mind, I would certainly talk to your doctor about them, he/she will probably tell you the same thing.

I was not fasting at the time
I would then say that those readings I mentioned are very good, but as I said, I f you are very concerned, then a chat with your dict should help set your mind at ease.
