How to check your Monocytes levels with a home fingerprick blood test kit
What Is A Monocytes Test For?
Monocytes are a type of white blood cell that dispose of foreign particles and bacteria.
They should make up about 5 - 10% of your white blood cells.

Monocytes Testing UK Statistics 2021
1.9% of people tested have Monocytes levels which are too low.
And 1.4% have levels that are too high.
The average Monocytes result is 0.5 x10^9/L
Note what is normal for you may differ for your age and gender.
Women tend to have lower Monocytes in their blood than men.
As many as one in forty-five women tested have low levels of Monocytes
of people have Monocytes blood levels in the normal range. Do you?
Are you in the 96.7% with normal results?
What If Monocytes Test Levels Are High?
There are many possible causes for a heightened percentage of monocytes in your blood.
Monocytosis is most commonly caused by chronic inflammatory or infectious conditions.
This can include chronic inflammatory disease, a parasitic, bacterial or viral infection, a collagen vascular disease, or rheumatoid arthritis.
Further investigation and testing are required to identify the cause.
What If Monocytes Test Levels Are Low?
A reduced total white blood cell count will often lead to a low monocyte blood level (known as monocytopenia).
Many conditions can cause a reduction of total white blood cell count, including infection and bone marrow disorders.
Further investigation is required to understand the cause.
How To Test Monocytes?
The Monocytes Test allows you to accurately check your levels of Monocytes in a fingerprick blood sample.
You can check your Monocytes levels by buying a home fingerprick blood test kit below. Your sample is then professionally analysed in an accredited laboratory for total reassurance. The Vitall Full Blood Count (FBC) Home Test Kit includes a Monocytes test and is available for just £59.
