Suggest treatment for slightly elevated lymphocyte count

default
Posted on Mon, 18 May 2015
Question: Hi I had a CBC test done on 12/14 and then again on 4/15. On both test my Lymphs (absolute) were considered high. On 12/14 they were 3.3 and on 4/15 they were 3.7 and my Eos were 0.5. Everything else on the test was normal. Is this something I should be concerned about? I only had slight allergies in the past month. Please let me know.

Brief Answer:
No need to worry much for this.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on HCM.
I can understand your situation and problem.
Don't worry about your lymphocyte count .
It is not greatly raised. It is slightly raised.
Following are the conditions in which lymphocytes are raised.
1. Chronic infections like tuberculosis, fungal infection etc.
2. Viral infection
3. Some parasitic infection etc.
You said that you had allergic symptoms in recent past.
Allergic reaction causes rise in eosinophil count.
So this can be the cause for your slightly high lymphocytes.
Please let me know
1. Do you have sore throat?
2. Do you have cough?
3. Do you have low grade fever or weight loss?
Please reply me answers of above asked questions, so that I can guide you better.
I will be happy to help you further.
Wish you good health.
Thanks.
