Brief Answer:
You are normal.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.

Good to hear that you are pregnant.

Do you have any disease or any symptoms apart from the low lymphocyte count?

By the way 18 - 44% is normal range of lymphocyte so you are still normal.

My most recent blood tests report CD3 and CD4 to be out of range...very high (82% and 62% respect.) IGg very low (0.35) Past tests reflected very low MCH and MCHC % My symptoms for past few years include extreme fatigue, ill feeling, hives, with no diagnosis other than lymphocytic colitis which has flared up recently. Is there a connection here? thank you
