How high?: You should ignore percentages of white cells returned on a cbc, pay attention only to absolute counts (they're of interest only if you're far from the reference range or abnormal cells are present), and look at the big picture with your physician. You'd be doing yourself a grave disservice by reading internet sites that discuss labs in isolation. If you feel well, i suspect nothing is wrong.
