This test is known as a differential count.
Lymphocytes are divided into 2 types but, a differential count does not separate "T & B " cells.
Your recent illness may have affected your blood test results.
Your WBC ( white blood cell ) was normal both times.
Your Monocytes were normal. Did this get repeated on your second blood test??
*Your lymphocytes went down from your first blood test.
*Your Neutrophils went up from your first blood test.
Here's an explanation:
An increase in the percentage of one type of leukocyte ( white blood cell) means a decrease in the percentage of another.
Increased Neutrophils can indicate an ongoing, acute ( short-term) bacterial infection.
* Neutrophils & lymphocytes make up to 75-90% of the total leukocytes.
*Neutrophils primary function is killing & digesting ( eating, known as phagocytosis) of bacterial microorganisms (basically bacterial germs).
* Lymphocytes primary function is fighting chronic ( long term) bacterial & acute ( short term) viral infections.
Increased Neutrophils can be caused by physical or emotional stress, trauma ( just to name a couple of reasons)
Decreased Lymphocytes can be caused by a viral infection.
It is quite possible that your recent illness and ongoing stress may have contributed to the abnormal values but, it is best that you contact the Doc who ordered the test and ask what the results mean. There always the chance that you may have a viral and a bacterial infection occurring at the same time. You need peace of mind. If you are concerned about HIV exposure, that is a separate test that will need to be done.
I hope that this is helpful and call your Doc.
