What does a Low WBC count, High Basophils, and low absolute Lymph count mean?

Postby cong-min » Fri Nov 30, 2012 8:47 am

These often come up in this way on seveal blood tests but none of the doctors even mention it to me. I have not been feeling well and want to get down to the bottom of this.
The WBC count was 3.9 normal range is 4.5 to 11.0
the Basophil count is 1.5 and normal range is 0.0-0.7
and absolute Lymph is 0.7 and normal raqnge is 0.8-4.9
My calcium level is also frequently very slightly low.
Could this be an indication of Multiple Myeloma or another bone cancer or what illnesses could be associated with these counts? Thank you for your time.

You describe very mild Basophilia. Could be simple sinus infection, asthma, and Allergy, etc...here is the list below:

Causes of basophilia: Myelocytic leukemia, inflammation, allergy, sinusitis, polycythemia vera, chronic hemolytic anemia, after splenectomy, after ionizing radiation, hypothyroidism, foreign protein ingestion, infections (TB, smallpox, chickenpox, influenza)

Be proactive with your doctors and ask them the very same questions. If you don't get a satisfactory answer. Get a second or third opinion.
