Abnormal White Blood Cell Results

White Blood Cell (WBC) Deficiency

  • Fewer WBCs than normal based on scan (approx 1 WBC per every 700 RBC)
  • Possible causes: low immune function due to digestive issues, dysbiosis, toxicity and nutrient deficiencies, repeated antibiotic use
  • Possible signs: fatigue, frequent infections, illnesses (more than 1 x year)

White Blood Cell (WBC) Excessive

  • More WBCs than normal, based on scan
  • Possible causes: infection, mononucleosis, viral activity, bacterial infection, mycoplasm, bacteria overgrowth, stress, lack of sleep, degenerative disease
  • Possible signs: fatigue or symptoms of illness

White Blood Cell (WBC) Inactive

  • Inactive, round, granules found on the surface of the WBC
  • Possible causes: lack of oxygen in blood, low minerals, lack of exercise, alcohol use, yeast (candidia) imbalance, weak kidneys, spleen, bladder causing an inability to detoxify and digest
  • Possible signs: deficient immune system, reduced ability to destroy pathogens, diseased / toxic tissues

Hypersegmented Neutrophils

  • Neutrophils with too many lobes in the nucleus
  • Neutrophils are WBCs that help to fight off bacteria infection
  • Possible causes: vitamins and minerals, fat soluble vitamins not being absorbed, poor digestion, lack of digestive enzymes, low kidney function, liver toxicity, intestinal dysbiosis
  • Possible signs: fatigue, anemia, reduce immune function, diseased tissues


  • Excessive WBC with 2 lobes / round non-moving granules concentrated around the outside edges – 2.5% is normal
  • Eosinophils help to fight off parasitic infection
  • Possible causes: parasites, drugs, smoking, second hand smoke, bone bruises, inflammation, menstruation
  • Possible signs: irritation, inflammation, pain, aches, soreness, swelling, sinus congestion, drainage


  • Similar looking to eosinophils, but smaller and have blue granules in phase contrast
  • Basophils release histamine and support the allergic response in the body
  • Possible causes: allergies to inhalants, mould, cats, fur, dust, pollen, perfume, toxicity of kidneys and diuretic use
  • Possible signs: runny nose, sinus problems, flu, colds, stuffed up, watery eyes, blur, edema, swelling, water retention

Lymphocytes (Excessive)

  • Lymphocytes are smaller and non-granular WBC T and B cells – T cells are closer in size to RBCs
  • Possible causes: degenerative disease conditions, free radicals and toxins, lymph system fighting environmental chemicals, pesticides, food additives, smog, viral activity
  • Possible signs: fatigue and low oxygenation

Lymphocytes (Deficient)

  • Too few lymphocytes in the blood
  • Possible causes: immune deficiency, radiation damage, free radicals, bone pathologies, x-ray exposure
  • Possible signs: fatigue or asymptomatic

Lymphocyte Damage

  • Cytoplasm damage (white areas on the edge) to the lymphocyte cells
  • Possible causes: viral activity, low oxygen, immune deficiency, poor digestion and nutrient deficiencies
  • Possible signs: fatigue, chronic infections or may be asymptomatic

Activated T-Cells

  • T-Cells are immune cells that appear larger than normal size indicating they are active
  • Possible causes: environmental chemicals, pesticides, food additives, smog, bacterial infection, drugs
  • Possible signs: fatigue, chronic infections or may be asymptomatic
