A healthy result should fall into the range 0 - 0.5 %.
Immature granulocytes are white blood cells that are immature. Small amounts of white blood cells may be present on a complete blood count test whether or not you have an infection although healthy people do not show immature granulocytes on their blood test report. However, whenever your body is fighting an infection, it will increase its white blood cell count, and more of the white blood cells will be immature.
Immature granulocyte counts are often tests ordered for patients that are highly susceptible to develop infections. They may already have a suppressed immune system.
When this test is run, if the result shows an increase, it means that the immune response will be severe. Thus, it’s an important test for patients receiving chemotherapy, diagnosed with HIV/AIDS, or ones in the ICU in the hospital.
Normal Ranges for Immature Granulocytes:
Neutrophils – 40–80% (2.0–7.0×10 9 /l)
Lymphocytes – 20–40% (1.0–3.0×10 9 /l)
Monocytes – 2–10% (0.2–1.0×10 9 /l)
Eosinophils – 1–6% (0.02–0.5×10 9 /l)
Basophils – < 1–2% (0.02–0.1×10 9 /l)
More than 2% immature granulocytes is a high count.
insert the value from you Immature Granulocytes (%) test result.
There is no health issue associated with low granulocyte counts.
High levels of immature granulocytes are indicative of any of the following:
- Early stage response to infection
- Stimulation of the bone marrow
- Bacterial infections
- Urinary tract infection
