Could be nothing: Many things including hemoconcentration can affect the result of complete blood counts. If it is only slightly elevated- nothing to worry at this time. Next time he gets another blood work- you can just compare the result to see if the level is normalized or if that is getting worse. If it is getting worse and more significant then further work up'd be done. Discuss with your pediatrician further.
