The following link will show you the ranges for blood work.  Keep in mind that it varies slightly from lab to lab.  But this will give you an idea of how good/bad each category is.

In order to understand each one you will need to do a search on that particular category.  Then it will explain what can be done to raise or lower that particular count.  It is time consuming, but it will help you to understand what you need to do to get the ranges within the acceptable limits.  I do this every month and adjust my diet/supplements accordingly.  Unsually by the next test, things are better.  Some you will be able to help control, others you will not because they are the result of chemo/radiation in a lot of cases.

If you decide to use supplements, be sure you check to see that they do not adversely impact whatever meds he is taking before you start them.  Supplements are not always good.  If you can "fix" the category with diet, that is your best bet because it doesn't interfere with anything.

I hope this helps some.

Good luck and God Bless
