see: https://labtestsonline.org/understanding/analytes/differential/tab/test/ for a good starting point.

Monocytes are cells that eat bacteria.  Here's a clip from that page.  You should ask your doctor about the results of your blood test as well.

Known as monocytopenia

Usually, one low count is not medically significant.

Repeated low counts can indicate:

  Bone marrow damage or failure
  Hairy-cell leukemia

Thanks so much for the information. Im a 47 year old female . I have been having horrible pain throughout my body for about 6 years now. The only thing I saw was my monocytes were very low.

Means you have very high inflammation and you need to find the cause of it.  HS-CRP should be ideally around 1 if you're very healthy, 3 is considered "normal."  24 is off the scale.

Could be an infection, could be stress, could be diet.  Did you see anything else in your bloodwork that was off that might indicate what it is?  Usually in a complete blood panel there's a section on the various types of white blood cells that might indicate if there's an infection going on.

Other than that, you probably will want to take anti-inflammatories such as Frankinsense, Myrr, make a tea out of Pot Marigolds (calendula), make a tea out of Holy Basil (aka Tulsi).  Taking things like ALA, Vitamin C, E, D3, K2, Magnesium Glycinate/Maleate/Citrate, etc. could also help.

Most likely it's an infection of some kind.
