A healthy result should fall into the range 1.5 - 3.5 x10E3/uL.
Lymphocytes are cells that work in our immune system and thus belong to the white blood cell family. Lymphocytes, neutrophils, monocytes, eosinophils, and basophils levels are assessed through a blood differential test (also called a white blood cell differential), as a part of a complete blood count. This test can detect abnormal or immature cells and can diagnose an infection, leukemia, or an immune disorder. A healthcare professional may order a blood differential when someone has general signs and symptoms of infection and/or inflammation, such as:
-Body aches, pains
So called because they are the primary type of cell found in lymph, lymphocytes have three major types: T cells, B cells, and natural killer cells. Together, lymphocytes are the major component of our body’s adaptive immune response and usually account for approximately 20-40% of the total white blood cells circulating at a given time. They act by identifying foreign objects, like bacteria and viruses, and generating a specific response that is tailored to maximally eliminate the invader.
insert the value from you Lymphocytes (Absolute) test result.
Known as lymphocytopenia, decreased lymphocyte levels may indicate:
-An autoimmune disorder like lupus
-Bone marrow damage (e.g., chemotherapy, radiation treatment)
-An infection like HIV or hepatitis
-A severe infection, such as sepsis, which is wiping out white blood cells faster than the body an make them
Known as lymphocytosis, elevated lymphocyte levels may indicate:
-A chronic bacterial infection
-Acute viral infection
-Multiple myeloma, a cancer of the bone marrow
-Lymphoma, a white blood cell cancer that originates in the lymph nodes
