Lymphocyte count
Name lymphocytes_gprd
Chapter Diseases of the blood/Full blood count
Absolute lymphocyte count (not percentage) in GPRD, in units of 10^9/L. Values with missing units frequently have zero recorded, but there are very few zero values if when units are provided. It is theoretically possible to have a lymphocyte count measured as zero. It is up to the analyst to remove zero values if desired.
Data Type Continuous
Data sources GPRD
Dictionaries Read
Repeated Yes
Units 10^9 / L
Range (min/max) 0-50
Valid event date range 01/01/1900 - 25/03/2010
Agreed 19 Jun 2013 (Revision 1)
If Read code is in the lymphocytes_gprd codelist

AND enttype = 208

AND data2 (value) < 50

AND data3 (units) IN (37 [10*9/L], 153 [10*9], 17 [/L])

THEN lymphocytes_gprd = data2
