hematology- what does this mean? High lymph, high end WBC, low EO, low BASO?
I was probably hemorrhaging (uterus from pcos) at the time (anion gap low). I suspect autoimmune tendencies, but I'm wondering if I had an infection or not. The results are almost a year old and this is the first time I was able to review them since. Otherwise I believe I'm healthy (BMI=19, Glucose=86, LDL=97, Triglycerides=105)

Haematology is the study of the blood. I guess the paperwork you are referring to came from a haematology department where they test blood. High lymph will mean high lymphocyte count i.e. white blood cells. WBC will mean white blood cells as well. Eo and Baso will mean eosinophils and basophils. These are types of cells which you find in the immune system. BMI will be your body mass index, Glucose is what the body uses for energy and can be made in the body from any food you eat and it is stored as glucogen and turned back into glucose when needed. Triglycerides are fatty acids, (some of them are needed). I will pass on LDL because I do not know that one. High lymphocytes normally indicate some kind of infection, but normally an infection would increase the number of basophils and eosinophils.
