Asthma...my white blood count 18.4 (h). do I need to take antibiotic to lower it or what can help. Thank u?
Depends....: If you are taking systemic steroids for your asthma, like prednisone, at the time this test was done, that could be the reason for the elevated white coun.

You: You need to have a medical evaluation immediately. I am concerned that you are having more bleeding from your cyst, a urinary problem, or something more serious. Please have an immediate medical evaluation. A high white blood cell count is not typical for a ruptured ovarian cyst, it is concerning for infection. ...Read more

Values >11 x 10 (9)/L: The normal white cell range is up to 10.5 x 10 (9)/l for most individuals. Mildly increased valuies (i.e. Up to 25 x 10 (9)/l) can be from infection, inflammation, trauma, steroid use, or even a chronic leukemia. Values well above 25 x 10 (9)/l become more suspicious for a bone marrow disease. Duration of time the WBC have been increased also a key factor. ...Read more

Neupogen (GCSF): This is the trade name for a medication known as Granulocyte Colony Stimulating Factor that mimics the action of the normal hormonal response to low numbers of neutrophils (granjulocytes.) But because it is given in much larger doses, the response is more dramatic than waiting for the natural response. Primarily it is used to blunt or shorten the period of low neutrophils from chemorx. ...Read more
White blood cells: Normally white blood cells are not found in urine. 100 per high power field is a quantity. Leukocytes/white blood cells indicate that inflammatory/infectious process is occurring, especially if rbcs are not present to support the idea of whole blood in urine. Lab findings must be taken in clinical context; we need to know what symptoms, issues, or other info available if any to help evaluate. ...Read more
A total white blood count (WBC) of 3000 or 3.0k is low, indeed.
Most labs around the country report normal values 4.0--10k
