The fact that the neutrophils in sep were 1.67 and 1.98 in

Resolved Question:

The fact that the neutrophils in sep were 1.67 and 1.98 in October is reassuring. Ie it would get lower and stay there if serious ? I hope I understand this ? Thanks in advance.

Yes, if it were to get significantly low and stay there it would be worrisome.

First, a neutrophil count is only mildly low, according to the normal range of our lab, so is most likely due to the 5% of normal people that are slightly outside the normal range, so a slightly low neutrophil count that persists may also not be an issue.

But even if there is a transient significant low neutrophil count that improves with subsequent lab tests, that is usually not worrisome, as the most common cause of a transiently low neutrophil count is a viral infection.

If there were a significant lowering of the neutrophil count that persists, that would be potentially serious and would warrant further evaluation.

No, this is not serious. All of these values are within the normal range.

Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 2 years ago.
Correct, if they do not get progressively lower or become significantly low relative to the normal range for neutrophils, it is not an issue.

An ESR of 6.7 is normal. If you had symptoms of a viral infection, then there may have been a virus, but it is not indicated by these labs.

Yes, it is a good sign that the liver has improved on the blood tests and likely that it has resolved.
