Foods To Eat To Increase White Blood Cell Count
Don't treat numbers: If one or more of your absolute counts (neutrophils or lymphcytes; i've never cared about monocytes) is a wee bit low, just follow it. If it is way low, you may be seriously sick and in that case need something stronger than homeopathy. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends...: Depends on the cause of the decrease. Best to speak with your physician and possibly get a referral to a hematologist to diagnose the problem and define the appropriate treatment plan. ...Read more
Depends: If the low count is due to effect of a drug, discuss using a different drug with your doctor. Normal count is 4-11 thousand, and if the person does not have symptoms, there is no need to increase the count.

None of them: The idea that food choices are the key to health or a specific treatment for any really serious disease (very few exceptions) is simply misinformation. If you're thrombocytopenic, the cause needs to be found and you need to learn as much about your illness as possible. This is serious business. If you've not been checked for lupus, this might be a good time. ...Read more

Meat and veggies: Eat only meat or fish or cheese or eggs or poultry and low starch veggies, drink only water.

Can steroid abuse cause high white blood cell count and protein in your urine ? My white blood cell count is 15
Maybe but...: Our first concern is to rule out a serious infection (is your peripheral smear abnormal? Are the white cells primitive / angry-looking? Do you have symptoms?) and real kidney disease (how much protein, is it mostly albumin?) i hope you'll reconsider anabolic steroid use (if it's this kind of steroid); every guy i know who's tried this has regretted it. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Many causes.: Low WBC can be due to nutritional factors, infections (esp. Viral infections), autoimmune diseases, inhereted defects, leukemias and other bone marrow cancers, meylodysplasia, drug reactions, and even unknown causes. The problem with this is infection, but the risk depends on how low the WBC is. Only with very low WBC is there a risk of death. ...Read more
Why do you ask?: There is no need to treat a lab value. If you feel well and there are no abnormal cells, it is almost never a problem to have a moderately elevated white count. If real disease has been diagnosed, manage the disease using the lab as one parameter. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
