Asthma...my white blood count 18.4 (h). do I need to take antibiotic to lower it or what can help. Thank u?

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. This is a side-effect of steroid therapy. If you have other signs and symptoms of infection, like fever, change in color/consistency of sputum, etc., then you may need an antibiotic course. So, follow up with your doctor! ...Read more

Is a white blood count of 12.7 a bad thing?

No it's likely fine: Your WBC (white blood count) varies from day to day and can go up and down for a variety of reasons. In pregnancy for example, women will often times have a WBC in the range of 15. Also, 12.7 actually is 12, 700. However, alot of it depends on what your current health condition is and in general a 12.7 by itself is likely ok. ...Read more

Does syphillis affect the white blood count?

Is a white blood count of 3.0 reason for concern?

Is a white blood count of 3.0 reason for concern?

Follow WBC=3k: 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
however the 'normal range' is an arbitrary cut -off embracing the 'extremes' of a normal statistical 'bell shaped curve'. So 3k can still be normal for you. However trends over time are most important and whether or not you have symptoms. Recheck <1 mo. W/'differential'. ...Read more
