On maintenance treatment for AML, had CBC done prior to 6-TG and cytarabine medication. Results showed low segmentors and high lymphocytes. What does this mean?

hello. I m on my maintenance treatment for AML . I just had my CBC today for monthly check-up prior to my 6-TG and Cytarabine medication for this week. My CBC result shows normal figures except for my Segmentors which is low at 36% (normal range: 50-70%) and Lymphocytes count which is high at 52% (normal range: 18-42%). What does this mean? and can I do something to contribute to normalize my cbc but still have successful maintenance treatment?

Hellol and thanks for posting your query on HCM
You are on maintainence therapy for AML.
AML is proliferation of progenitor cells of segmentor series.
A decrease in segmentors is due to therapy which is acting on these cells.
However, I need to know your TLC.

Thanks and I hope you get back to me
Take care
