Two months back I was in the ER with fever and high heart rate, my blood work came back and my WBC was in range but my Neutrophil% was low and Lymphocyte% was high. So, my primary care doctor ordered a re-check which came back pretty good. My WBC was in range buy this time my Eosinophil% and Absolute Eosinophils were high, He then ordered another recheck for 1 month out and the results are as follows (reference ranges are in brackets.
WBC: 5.0 (4.2-10.2)
Platelet: 340 (140-350)
Neutrophils%: 38 (40-75) LOW
Lymphocyte%: 46 (15-45) HIGH
Monocyte%: 7 (2-12)
Eosinophil%: 8 (0-7) HIGH
Basophil% 1 (0-3)
Absolute Neutrophils: 1.88 (1.25-7.00)
Absolute Lymphocytes: 2.3 (0.75-3.5)
Absolute Monocytes: .36(.2-1.0)
Absolute Eosinophils: .41 (0.0-0.50)
Absolute Basophils: .03 (.00-.10)
So my question is, what would cause the WBC count to be normal but percentages be off while absolute count was in range? These results seemed a little confusing and my doctor just brushed it off. But, it has been a few months and my WBC's have seemed to be all over the map.
