Avatar f tn you had a blood test? what kind of blood test?
Avatar m tn This was not a urine test this was a blood test. I just want to know if your WBC count would be up with any infection, or if there is possible to have an infection and not have a elevated WBC count.
Avatar n tn Normally simple blood tests results like hemogram, total cell count, complete blood checkup, blood sugar, electrolytes etc are available the same day. Some times the tests are done and the report not uploaded on the computer due to technical delays. So if you do not get them by tomorrow, yes, definitely follow this up. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar f tn I was wondering if anyone has had several CBC's and had slightly elevated white blood count? The last 3-4 times in which I've had a complete blood count they notice that it's elevated but not to the point where it becomes a concern ( so the doctor says) but I still find it strange.
Avatar m tn In November 2013, my heart doctor asked me a complete blood count, along with other test (cholesterol, triglycerides, etc.). Everything was normal with the red cells, but the white cells were low (4090/mm3) and there were more leucocytes (2740/mm3) than neutrophils (920/mm3). She asked me about HIV and I replied her that I have been tested twice.

Avatar m tn I has CBC (complete blood check) test in which it showed CD4 count is 980 and lymphocytes is 19.1% for range 20-40%. What does these values mean. Does this indicate weaker immune system in the body. I am little nervous please help me. Thanks.
Avatar n tn The HIV test is totally different from the test that you had. Your test sounds like a complete blood count. If you feel the need for being tested for HIV, please, by all means, ask your doctor to please have you tested. It is a specialized test and must be marked "HIV" for the test requested. Hope this helped. HIV means you carry the virus; full-blown AIDS is the disease itself. There are many folks living with HIV who never develop full-blown aids.

780520 tn?1235938417 My wife just had a blood test done. They notice her platlet level was low, although they did not give her the count. They want her to come back for further blood test. I've been reading about (thrombocytopenia) and the causes of it. I won't jump to any conclusion here but can you put my mind to rest? For I know that much of the time what we read online causes us to become over the top with our concerns. Also what will they being checking for with this additional blood test?

Avatar f tn Infections can cause a high or low platelet count. In children, an infection is often accompanied by a raised platelet count. This is thought to be due to the hormones, called cytokines, that are produced as part of the body's normal defense against infection. Additionally, a high platelet count can happen for many reasons, but there are two basic processes involved. The cells within the bone marrow produce more platelets. Less platelets are removed from the blood by the spleen.
Avatar f tn The number of white blood cells (WBCs) in the blood. The WBC is usually measured as part of the CBC (complete blood count). White blood cells are the infection-fighting cells in the blood. There are different types of white blood cells, including neutrophils (polymorphonuclear leukocytes; PMNs), band cells (slightly immature neutrophils), T-type lymphocytes (T cells), B-type lymphocytes (B cells), monocytes, eosinophils, and basophils.

Avatar m tn Ok so I know the only way to be tested positive for HIV is to get a HIV specific blood test... But I have another question, approx. 8 yrs ago, I had intercourse with some shady girl... unprotected. (so stupid, I was a dumb high school kid) I had a blood test 4 years AFTER the said intercourse with girl, which came back normal (as in I has a normal range WBC count)... however, the test didn't check specifically for HIV.
