My CBC came back with a couple componenst out of range

SEG was 46% this is low
LYM was 20% also a little low
ATLYM was 29%. this is WAY high

For Hep, these values have no real meaning of which I'm aware.
WBC, RBC, Hgb, ANC, and Platelets are those watched most often.

Atypical lymphocyte % could be a sign of a lymphoproliferative disorder,not uncommon in HCV, or monocyte like lymphocytes like in EBV disease ( mononucleosis).

You need to follow up with your doc.

The neutrophils ( SEG) and regular lymphocytes LYM are somewhat low, since the atypical class has such a high prevalence.
