Abnormal level of monocytes
Dear Ask The Doctor:
Yesterday i received my complete blood count report and the monocytes are 1% but the normal range is 6 to 10% can you please guide on this
Answer:Monocytes are types of white blood cells which act a immune cells and play a role in the immune function of the body. However a low level of monocytes on one test is not specific and i would ask you to repeat the complete blood count again in about a month to see the levels and recheck the same. All the best.
