What does a high reading of "neutrophils absolute" indicate in terms of health. (You do address "low neutrophils" herein, but not the high end of the scale).

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for posting.

*The absolute neutrophil count is the real number of white blood cells (WBCs) that are neutrophils. The absolute neutrophil count is commonly called the ANC.

Keep in mind, it's always best to speak with your doctor about any test result.
