Low: Most doctors do not consider a single low monocyte count to be significant. However, low monocyte results on several tests can indicate hairy cell leukemia or bone marrow damage.
Beside above, what does it mean when your absolute lymphocytes are low? Lymphocyte counts below the normal range can also be temporary. They can occur after a cold or another infection, or be caused by intense physical exercise, severe stress, or malnutrition. A low level can also be a sign of a condition known as lymphocytopenia or lymphopenia.
Similarly one may ask, what does a low monocyte count mean?
A low number of monocytes in the blood (monocytopenia) can be caused by anything that decreases the overall white blood cell count (see also Neutropenia and Lymphocytopenia), such as a bloodstream infection, chemotherapy, or a bone marrow disorder.
What does it mean when your absolute monocytes are high?
Monocytes: High levels of monocytes may indicate the presence of chronic infection, an autoimmune or blood disorder, cancer, or other medical conditions. This condition is a normal immune response to an event, such as infection, injury, inflammation, some medications, and certain types of leukemia.
