Lab Results Came In The Mail

Recommended Posts

Hi Barefut,


As I understand it, high neutrophils can be caused by many things. Too much stress or exercise, smoking, being overweight, taking prednisone, an infection, etc.


Low neutrophils, on the other hand, can be caused by autoimmune diseases, such as lupus, or even simple things such as vitamin deficiences.


You'd have to ask your doctor, of course, as to what it means (if anything) in light of your overall health and other bloodwork.

Warm Hugs,
