Could periodontitis cause high white blood cell count, elevated platelet count, and low neutrophils. Any causes besides cancer can cause this.

Could periodontitis cause high white blood cell count, elevated platelet count, and low neutrophils. Any causes besides cancer can cause this.

2 separate problems: Periodontitis and gingivitis frequently are seen in patients with neutropenia. 1. See your PCP first for consultation, tests and treatment. 2. See your dentist for periodontal evaluation and treatment, according to PCP recommendations.

Low Platelets (Definition)

In the blood. They "bud" ie break off from cells in the bone marrow called megakaryocytes. A normal platelet count is 140-400. Platelets are the first line of defense in blood vessel bleeding. They "plug holes" until the coagulation proteins can begin ...Read more

What are the causes of a high platelet and high white blood cell count in a blood test?

What are the causes of a high platelet and high white blood cell count in a blood test?

Quite a few: Things. The most common thing would be an acute infection, usually bacterial. Also could be seen in a heavy smoker, other stressful illness and myeloproliferative diseases. How high?

What does a high white blood cell count and high platelet count mean?

Hematology workup: The elevation of these 2 parameters of the CBC (complete blood count) may reflect infection or inflammation. However, depending on the chronicity and extent of rise, it may also be associated with bone marrow problems such as myeloproliferative diseases. I suggest a hematology consultation and workup to sort out the underlying cause (s).

A question: what causes a high platelet count along with a high white blood cell count at the same time?

A question: what causes a high platelet count along with a high white blood cell count at the same time?

Reactive or?: The CBC (complete blood count) consists of many lab numbers, but 3 important ones are the hemoglobin (hgb, a measure of red cells), white blood cell count (WBC) and platelet (plt) count. Wbc and plts may both increase as a result of a reaction such as infection (eg pneumonia), inflammation (arthritis), etc. If prolonged and/or very high it may indicate a bone marrow problem.

What does it mean if my recent blood test results show that I have a high platelet and white blood cell count?

See a doctor: This can be one of several things. If you are otherwise completely healthy, it may indicate a bone marrow disease called polycythemia vera. If you have medical conditions or are on certain medications, it can indicate inflammation or infection. Please see your doctor or a hematologist to help sort this out.

I have high blood platelets that increased a little over 2, 000 in 6 days and my white blood cell count went up my back/hips hurt, dizzy, nauseous?

I have high blood platelets that increased a little over 2, 000 in 6 days and my white blood cell count went up my back/hips hurt, dizzy, nauseous?

HemOnc: An elevated platelet count of 2, 000 (thromocytosis) should be evaluated for and treated asap. The elevated platelet alone can cause your symptoms. Essential thrombocytosis or another myeloproliferative disorder is considered and should be ruled out. Additional blood tests, bm biopsy and hematology-oncology consultation is required.

My daughters white blood cell count is 12.6 and platelets are 442 and carbon dioxide is 20 should I be concerned?

My daughters white blood cell count is 12.6 and platelets are 442 and carbon dioxide is 20 should I be concerned?

Probably Not: Not really, but the context of whu these tests were done is important. Tha numbers are not really concerning otherwise.

I have a high white blood cell count and low potassium and severe fatigue what does that point to?

All are nonspecific: Neither the lab results taken together or separately point to a particular pathology. Can you share additional detail so we can personalize the answer you seek?

What causes Low Immature Granulocyte, High Neutrophil. High Hematocrit, High White Blood Cell Count? Have bone pain but rf factor shows normal.

What causes Low Immature Granulocyte, High Neutrophil. High Hematocrit, High White Blood Cell Count? Have bone pain but rf factor shows normal.

See below: 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. Having said that, it would have helped to have the actual results. Why were the tests done? What symptoms do you have? It would require taking history, physical examination and may be more tests to settle the issue. Please see your doc.

Need eval: They both could be different etiologies. Or if you have diarrhea from some infectious etiology both can occur together again elevated WBC and low potassium is a cocern need to evaluated in er or clinic depends on your symptom severity.

High white blood cell count green poop low grade fever and chills with headache flu negative strep negative listeria??

High white blood cell count green poop low grade fever and chills with headache flu negative strep negative listeria??

If you have green: Poop and fever, then look inside the belly for cause. You may need a CT, or stool culture, or GI workup. If you have headache with fever, perhaps you need to look for meningitis. In other words, have your doctor keep looking for a cause, those tests you listed are only the beginning. Focus on your symptoms and start there. Good luck.

What is low white blood cell count mean if high fever and sick?

What is low white blood cell count mean if high fever and sick?

Leukopenia may be...: Counterintuitive, but it is seen frequently in the context of infection/inflammation. Usually we equate illness with a rise in WBC count because we mobilize our wbcs to fight off infections caused by multiple pathogens...Viruses, bacteria, fungi for example. However, inflammatory cytokines can induce transient marrow suppression to cause leukopenia. Should resolve spontaneously. Get well soon.

During an echocardiogram they found a shadow on my cousins liver, she has low white blood cell count, and her sugar was high. What can all this mean?

During an echocardiogram they found a shadow on my cousins liver, she has low white blood cell count, and her sugar was high. What can all this mean?

Needs follow up: The liver can be imaged with ultrasound (as in the echocardiogram), ct and MRI and depending on the type lesion, there may be different advantages to using different types of imaging. Follow up is needed to assess if this lesion is benign or needs further assessment. Some lesions may require a biopsy to be examined by a pathologist for a diagnosis.

What could cause this? White blood cell count elevated and low potassiumleukemia?

Need more info: There are many causes of elevated white cell count and low potassium. Leukemia would not be my first consideration. Please discuss these with the doctor who ordered the tests as s/he had more information about your health.

I check my CBC test & my white blood cell count was 11.0 is that high normal or high or low?

I check my CBC test & my white blood cell count was 11.0 is that high normal or high or low?

Leukocytosis: Your white count is slightly high. A high white count (leukocytosis) can be caused by many different things, most commonly an infection. Some people have high white cells due to a medication they are taking. Others are born with it. Others develop it because of dangerous conditions such as leukemia. Please consult with a hematologist to determine what form of leukocytosis you have.

What to do if I have high eosinophils & low white blood cell count. What does it mean?

What to do if I have high eosinophils & low white blood cell count. What does it mean?

Depends: The common causes of high eosinophil count are allergy and parasitic infestation. It would require investigation in-person to ascertain the cause and treatment.

I just received my CBC back. My granulite percentage is low, 22.9 and my lymphocite percentage is high, 74.0. Overall white blood cell count is 8.6.

I just received my CBC back. My granulite percentage is low, 22.9 and my lymphocite percentage is high, 74.0. Overall white blood cell count is 8.6.

Can't tell if you: Have a question. That differential is not too helpful without the blood count with which it is associated, and the symptoms that generated the lab work in the first case. Treating lab values without a patient attached is not a wise practice.
