Question: My lymphocyte count was 49 percent of my total blood count. White blood count 6800, lymphocyte count 3343. Red blood cell count 5840. Is this cause for concern, I was bitten by 3 bees a day or two prior to the blood test FYI. My fasting blood sugar was also 106. Been testing is daily since and it falls normally around 85-89 every morning. Should I look further into my blood results. All other counts came in perfecting normal along with liver and kidney function. My CRP was 1.1 % as well.

Detailed Answer:
Sorry to learn about your bee stings.

The fasting glucose of 106 is certainly abnormal nut not worrisome high, not even enough to qualify as diabetes. It could be a stress response to the incident, particularly likely so in view of the fact that it is now running in the normal range.

So there is no further need to check it.

However, there are standard guidelines to screen individuals for diabetes annually and if you meet those then periodic checking is advisable. Some of these risk factors include: overweight/obesity and family history of diabetes.

Regarding the blood cell count abnormalities, it appears that your red cell and lymphocyte count are elevated. I recommend retesting and checking with your family doctor or a hematologist

My red blood cell count according to the lab from which the results came was only .14 percent higher than normal range. Is that even something to be concerned about. My lympohocyte count was also 49% when the acceptable range on these labs read 47%. Is this enough to cause concern? I was bit by 3 bees a day before the blood test and it could have been elevated from my body fighting thr venom?

Sir/Mam ,
My name is Bhuvi ,33 Yrs,having PCOD since I was 17yrs old. Currrently I am suffering from overweight i.e. 103 kg with height of 5"3 inch. I have one girl child of 5 yrs old and after her birth I have gained my weight to 23 kgs and haven't been able to control it. My mistake was that I never went for proper consultation and followed up any diet and now things are worsened as I have been detected with high B.P. and I feel lathargic all the time. lately feeling very nostalgic and don't feel like eating anything and i am always feeling uneasy.
Is it because that I started having GLYCOMET 500mg SR on my gyne consultation. Plus I am taking Amlokind at of mankind for my B.P. one time in a day. To have regular periods I am also taking Diane-35/sometimes Krimson.
Problem is my husband and i want another baby in the family and we have been trying from past 2 yrs and I am unable to conceive.
I want you to guide me how should I start and what medicines I should follow so that I conceive in this year itself because I fear of my getting older for taking another chance might harm my pregnancy.

Hi, I am 66, diabetic, basically fairly fit, on borders of overweight/ obesity . In an aircraft last year had sensation of not being able to breathe , and no problems for 9 months. After another nine months after wet spell had the problem at night. Now every time we have a wet spell I get this sensation, worse when asleep and wake up. Sleeping in a warm dry room and the problem disapears. Breathing air direct from a dry heat source is the same. The hospital says its in my mind , the doctor said that my oxygen is OK (it IS, but not at my house, but in the warm hospital). I have had problems with various insulins and am allergic to some drugs . I believe there is a problem with fungal stuff floating around here. When I leave the house over say 2 miles the problem seems to vanish. I have no problems, moneywise, health wise(except this) and family etc. but doctores will not listen, to the extent that a pneuologist sent me home knowing that I was driving and having a breakdown. The breakdown happens due to an inncident 20 years ago and am told its a stress syndrome .
