Question

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.


What is High Cholesterol

You have this condition if there are high levels of cholesterol in the blood. There are three parts of cholesterol:

  • Low density lipoproteins (LDL)-known as bad cholesterol. It causes build up of cholesterol and other fats in the blood vessels. High LDL levels can cause artery and heart disease.
  • High density lipoproteins (HDL)-known as good cholesterol. It can remove cholesterol and other fats from the blood vessels. High levels of HDL can protect against heart disease.
  • Triglycerides-a common form of fat in the body. Often elevated in people with diabetes or certain genetic conditions.
  • Particles-proteins associated with certain types of cholesterols in the body. These may be a better signal about your risk of developing disease in the blood vessels.
