What are the results for absolute count of WBC????.

Those are the main important ones. Sometimes doctors don't take too much importance in neut, mono, lymph percentage instead they do give a lot of importance to absolute values, percentage is just for reference more than for a real diagnose.

For example, imagine a blood count of:

WBC 8.0
monocytes 14%

where normal absolute for monocytes is between 200-800, but if someone has 8.0 of total WBC and of those 8.0 (8000) 14% is from monocytes (the absolute monocytes will be 1.12 of abnormal cells that should be deep checked since could be leucemic cells even if WBC is on normal range, but this could be a very initial stage of leukemia).

Now imagine a blood count of:

WBC 10.0
monocytes 6%

that will be 600 absolute of monocytes *normal range* and high wbc count that could be from a flu and not precisely leukemia.

My WBC is 6.8? The results do not have a percentage it only says what is abnormal either High or Low. How do I figure the percentage out?

My WBC is 6.8. How do I know percentages all my results say is whatsabnormal either High or Low?
