Does Hypothyroidism Cause Elevated Wbc
Yes it may: High ESR is a response to inflammatory process in body due to various disease like Tuberculosis,Rheumatoid arthritis, endocarditis .. list is long.In lymphoma like Hodgkin type higher esr is taken as poor prognosis. However esr is not a diagnostic method for these conditions ESR may be used as a crude method to see the response of treatment in Hodgkin lymphoma ...Read more
Stimulates Thyroid: As the name implies, TSH = thyroid stimulating hormone so this hormone does stimulate thyrocytes. If you have hypothyroidism (lazy thyroid), the high TSH will keep stimulating the thyroid gland to make more hormones and that is why we treat with thyroid hormone (or in iodine deficient areas iodine therapy may help). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Some of the medications associated with hyperglycemia are Steroids, High dose of Beta blockers ( except carvidalol & Nebivalol) High dose of HCTZ (hydrochlorothiazide) ( 50 mg or higher)I Statins can cause minimal elevation of blood sugar. ...Read more
Yes. : The thyroid hormone is a permissive hormone that stimulates metabolic and catabolic cycles in your body. Hyperthyroidism subsequently enhances these cycles causing insomnia, heat intolerance, anxiety, chest palpitation, and possible low grade fever, etc. Now, all these symptoms can be controlled by medication. I recommend that you see an endocrinologist for further evaluation. ...Read more
Low ALT, but normal : Normal value for alt and ast differs in various lab centers. As long as your alt value within that range, it is considered normal. However, alt value also depends on age, gender, ethnicity, body weight, timing of blood drawn etc therefore, someone may have lower than others, but within normal range. As long as it is within range set by lab, it is considered normal. ...Read more
Low vitamin B12.: pernicious anemia is a LOW vitamin B12 state. This occurs when the body fails to make enough of a specific protein to enable the body to absorb vitamin B12. This usually occurs when the immune system attacks a specific cell in the stomach that produces the needed protein. Since the body can't absorb vitamin B12 through the stomach it can be given in a shot and even under the tongue. ...Read more
Autoimmune thyroid : Elevated levels of thyroid peroxidase antibodies (anti-tpo abs) and elevated levels of anti-thyroglobulin antibodies are seen in autoimmune thyroid disease. These may be the earliest findings of the immune system starting to attack the thyroid gland. Eventually the thyroid gland becomes injured (changes visible on ultrasound) and may progress to hypothyroidism. This describes hashimoto'thyroiditis. ...Read more
Have diagnosis of pcos, hypothyroid, venous insufficiency. 2 blood test in 6mths show elevated WBC and calcium and ck serum of 20. What could cause?
Hypothyroid. Rdw low 13.1 (13.6-16.1) mpv low 9.7 (10.3-13.3) WBC 6.9 RBC 4.73 platelets 356. Iron 37 (37-145) iron/tibc <10 low (200-360). Advice?
Change meds: Make sure your thyroid level has been normalized with the proper dose of brand name T4 such as synthroid (thyroxine). Stop the cytomel. It can be dangerous and there is no way to check to see if you're on the correct dose. Your anemia may need further evaluation once your thyroid is stabilized. ...Read more

Leukopenia: Low white cell count with normal red cell series and platelets has several causes like autoimmune disease,aleukemic leukemia,medication induced,viral illness, but may also have no identifiable cause. 2800 is quite low and the differential white cell count becomes important to know. A hematologist is best qualified to evaluate the situation. ...Read more
I have a paraovarian cyst, lab shows high wbc. High eosinophils, hemglbin a little low diagnosed with hypothyroidism..What could be causing all this?
Not likely your cyst: Apparently your cyst is non-functional, so unless there is infection, it should not be causing your readings. Eosinophils can mean a parasitic infection or allergic reaction, while high WBC can mean an infection. Your low hb can be from blood loss or renal issue, and hypothyroid can have many causes. You may have one or many causes for this, but you need more tests so see your dr. For a workup. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My TSH is > 100 and WBC is 9300 and currently on eltroxin 100mcg can I take folvite (folic acid) 5 mg after 7 hrs. Will folic increase my WBC affect my hypothyroid?
Yes, probably no: Yes, no problem taking folvite, (folic acid) though i don't know if it will affect your WBC or thyroid. Your WBC is normal, though is a bit on the higher side which may indicate an acute infection- but it can change a great deal day to day. Eltroxin may not be enough- many people need liothyronine as well. Make sure your free T3 gets into the upper half of the normal range. You may benefit from taking iodine. ...Read more

In theory: Yes, if infection, inflammation. Some herbals can increase WBC activity, e.g. Echinnacea-potentially a problem if autoimmune diseases which have excessive activity of some parts of immune systems, e.g. Thyroid, rheumatoid arthritis, ibd, psoriasis, lupus, etc. Check with your doc. ...Read more
How elevated?: Normal WBC count is about 4-11 thousand; however as with any other lab test about 5% of normal people will fall outside this range. Do you have any symptoms? Why was cell count done? What is the total and differential count? You should discuss these matters with your doctor at the next visit. ...Read more
Some do, some don't: It's just one piece of information. Most severe bacterial infections will raise the neutrophil count and put overactive and young cells in that series into the blood -- but the very worst may actually feature a low count. Different white cells come out for different knids of infection, and sometimes the response is poor overall. Don't rely on just one piece of information. ...Read more
Elevated platelet count w/elevated wbc. How high would be a cause for alarm? WBC is 12.8K/ul: platelets 541 K/ul
Neither value: is particularly alarming, but both are indicative of a stress response by the body. The question is, what is causing the stress response? It could be an infection, a metabolic process, or other physiologic stressor. More testing needs to be done to find the source. Hope this helps! ...Read more
I have elevated wbc- around 16.73 k/ul $ my necrophil is 79%- can these be caused by mild antral gastritis i had endoscope sat w/ two biopsies taken.
Leukocytosis: Wbc counts can be elevated due to a wide variety of events, including emotional stress. Need the remainder of the differential count to make any comment. Inflammation including infection can do this, but would need to examine you and have more data. Go back to the doctor who did the endoscopy. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have an elevated WBC of 14.2. My lymphocytes AND my neutrophils are both high. What can cause both to be high?
All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, if you do not have any symptoms you may watch and wait. It may be your normal.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
I understand that monoclonal B cell lymphocytosis can cause an elevated WBC. Could it cause a high or very high CRP as well?
No: As a lab specialist I do not recommend even ordering a CRP except as part of a focused rheumatology workup. If you feel well, usually you never find the cause of the elevation anyway. Some people just run it high. If you have horrible ulcerative atherosclerosis, which is one cause, your doctor would know already. Otherwise, it really doesn't give useful information if you feel well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
During a routine checkup , my urinalysis showed elevated wbc , negative urine culture , no symptoms . What may the cause be ?
Various Causes.: Having WBCs in your urine without symptoms is described as sterile pyuria. This depends also on how many WBCs are present. This can be due to many conditions including contamination, various infections including STIs, inflammatory conditions etc. I would discuss with your provider and have them review your full urinalysis to see if there are any other abnormalities present and review your history. ...Read more
