I had blood work done and all my results were normal except for two Immature Granulocytes was 1 and Immature Grans (abs) was 0.1 Should I be concerned and see a hemotologist. Please advise what the normal range should be for both. I tried looking it up on the internet but became very confused.

Normal Range for Immature granulocytes
Hi, I am a medical laboratory scientist with a specialist certification in hematology MLS(ASCP)SH.
THe NCCLs guidelines for Immature Granulocytes state that the normal range is 0-2%. Certain instruments (Sysmex) give an IG%. So, any range of 0-2% would be considered normal range. Immature Granulocytes (IG%)conist of Metamyelocytes, Myelocytes and Promyelocytes--Blasts are not included in the IG% of the Sysmex analyzer. Now that analyzers count up to 32,000 cells for the automated differential, we know that it is normal to have a low number of immature granulocytes circulating in the peripheral blood. Normal WBC count in most labs is 5-10. I hope this helps.

I also was told I have two immature granulocytes and need to be retested in a few weeks as my MD thinks I might be fighting something. Everything else value-wise is normal. I don't really fit the profile of any of the leukemias, so I'm a little scared.
