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
Ive had a slightly high white blood count between 12.4 to 12.6 for a year now. What could this indicate?
Depends.: Are you having any other symptoms? If not, this may be normal for you. A lab result by itself does not tell us much, without knowing the rest of the picture. And the range of normal values is not absolute. Ask your doc about your concerns and see if there's any plan to monitor the result for now and recheck later or do further workup at some point. ...Read more
Not really: Patients with addisons disease (severe adrenal insufficiency) are often very sick. If the adrenal insufficiency comes as a result of sepsis (overwhelming infection), the WBC would be high. But most addison's is autoimmune, and the WBC is not high. Sometime one of the WBC (eosinophils) can be high. There can be other associated autoimmune problems that could affect wbc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
High is relative: It is known that stress releases hormonal factors that cause white cells to enter the flowing blood from their resting sites along the blood vessel wall. Most would agree that labor and delivery incur some level of stress on baby.That factor broadens the range of "expected" white cell count at birth to 9, 000-30, 000 and 24h from 9, 400-34, 000.Other parameters must be examined to look for infection. ...Read more
What causes a high white blood count i've had pnuemonia can that give me a high white blood count
Absolutely. : Absolutely. A "white count" refers to the number of white blood cells present in the blood. There are numerous reasons why the WBC count would be elevated, but infection is at the top of the list. Being that you know you already have an infection (pneumonia), that's the most obvious explanation for the high wbc. I assume you're taking antibiotics for your pneumonia. If so, in time, you'll feel better and your WBC should return to normal. If you develop a fever or chills, even if you're taking antibiotics, you need to report this to your doctor immediately. ...Read more
