Hi. Before I answer do you have the rest of the results from the CBC?
And do you have the normal range for neutrophils for that lab?
I understand--Complete blood count and differential which would have included the white blood cell count, hemoglobin, platelets, and the differential--neutrophils, basophils, lymphocytes, etc.
So you really don't have any more information than the neutrophil count?
Neutrophils are one type of white blood cell and they help attack bacteria and viruses when we have infections.
But 1.59 isn't concerning unless your total white blood cell count is also low, in which case it could indicate leukemia.
Since they only told you about the neutrophil count I would assume your white count is fine and so I don't think there's any reason for you to be concerned about this.
If you can't get the full test results we can discuss this further but for now I am not worried about the neutrophil count
