Absolute Granulocyte Count

Granulocytes are white blood cells that contain little granules enriched with protein. This test is calculating Granulocytes level in the blood for finding the infections and allergic conditions of the body. Due to the parasites, infection granulocytes level elevated.

Neutrophils, eosinophils, and basophils are three types of granulocytes. Granulocyte count in a blood test measures three subtypes of granulocyte cells in a complete blood count. Granulocyte count is WBCs that have small granules or particles that help the immune system fight off a viral and bacterial infection. As an immune response, these granulocytes migrate to the site of infection and release a number of effector molecules such as histamines, cytokines, chemokinesis, enzymes, and growth factors.

Excessive granulocytes in the blood are known as granulocytosis. It occurs in conditions such as sepsis, kidney failure, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, emotional stress, burns, heart attack, autoimmune disease, blood cancers, chronic myelogenous leukemia, and certain medications such as corticosteroids. (CML), chemotherapy, bone marrow transplant, radiation therapy, splenectomy, and other bone disorders. Symptoms include frequent infections, abnormal bleeding, and fatigue, loss of appetite, pale skin, and night sweats.  Absence or low granulocytes are called agranulocytosis or granulocytopenia. Some causes of agranulocytosis are bone marrow disease, spina bifida (myelodysplasia), chemotherapy and bone marrow transplant, etc. granulocytopenia can be caused due by congenital or acquired production of granulocyte precursors or it may be a consequence of the destruction of mature granulocytes (most commonly by immune mechanism). Symptoms include sudden fever, chills, sore throat, weakness, sore mouth and gums, ulcers in the mouth, bleeding gums, etc. Other associated tests include flow cytometry, antibody blood test, bone marrow aspirate, bone marrow biopsy, cytogenic and molecular testing, etc.
