Having blood tests can be a daunting experience, and it’s understandable that you will have concerns as to what certain abbreviations mean. One such example is NEU, and this is in reference to your neutrophil count. If this measurement in your blood test is average, it ensures that you can fight infections and that your immune system is strong enough to protect your good health.

The functions of neutrophils in your body are varied. For example, these white blood cells have the ability to stick to bacteria and fungi that’s trying to enter the body and cause illness, and swallow them up as they rush to the site of infection. For every millilitre of blood that is measured, it’s advised that your neutrophil count (or NEU for short) is between 3,000 and 6,000. If a doctor mentions that you have ‘neutropenia’, it’s likely that your white blood cell count is too low, meaning that you are more susceptible to contracting illnesses because of your weakened immune system.

Whenever possible, you should seek medical advice so you can receive definitions and information that are tailored to your diagnosis. Remember: Even though the average counts for neutrophils may lie between 3,000 and 6,000 per millilitre of blood, your own personal thresholds may differ substantially. There are ways that neutropenia can be treated, and a doctor will be able to give you more information about how your diet and lifestyle may influence a low neutrophil count in your bloodstream. Over time, making improvements to the way you live can be highly beneficial, especially if it will minimise the amount of time you spend being ill.
