What does it mean to have high lymph K/uL counts?


Answer by  DrSPReddy (127)

A high lymph count can be due to number of reasons including a viral infection or an infection due to some other organisms including tuberculosis. A high lymph count should not be ignored and may be due to blood cancers such as leukemia or lymphoma. It may also be due to autoimmune disease.

A very high count either means you have an infection, or an autoimmune disorder that is causing such amounts to be large. More uncommonly, this is a sign of leukemia.


Answer by  ktsmom00 (26)

It can mean any number of different things, from a slight infection of some sort, like an ear infection, or bladder infection, to different types of cancer. It can also be an indication of an auto-immune disease such as Lupus. I wouldn't worry unless your doctor says to be concerned.

High lymph counts can be an indicator of an infectious process going on in the body, an autoimmune disorder such as lupus or even certain types of cancer.

Usually when a person has a high lymph K/uL count there is an infection inside the body. Ifectionas can be viral, acute, protozoal or bacterial. When combined with a high white blood cell count it means something is seriously wrong and you need to be throughly tested including blood smears as serious diseases often present symptoms like this.

These are white blood cells that produce antibodies to fight viral infections. It could mean that the patient has a viral infection, or would confirm it if symptoms are present.


Answer by  stiners (221)

Lymph counts represent the amount of lymphocytes in your system, which help regulate antibody production and the immune system. If it is only slightly out of range, it can be indicative of a minor infection. Really high counts can be indicative of leukemia.
