Many causes: One high liver function and an elevated white blood count and neutrophil count does not mean leukemia. In a 29 year old an infection is much more likely. You would expect more changes in a CBC than this with leukemia. Who ordered the test and why? That would be the person best able to guide you. Hope this helps.
