Why is my white blood cell count always high my dr said some peoples are just high? Mine have been for a year
Doc may be right...: Many people run a chronically mildly elevated WBC that remains normal for them. But the operative words here are that it is mild (normal is 4-10, 000) such as 11 or 12, 000; that it is repetitive and does not keep rising; and that there is a full evaluation of the type of WBC present. I would recommend a hematology consultation before presuming this is normal.See 1 more doctor answer
No: That total count is within normal range, but total number is not the only thing to consider when looking at a WBC count. You need to look at different types of cells present and the clinical picture. It would be on the high normal side if the child is fighting a viral infection, but totally normal for something like an ear infection. So put all pieces of puzzle together before final determination.
Mono: Typically yes. This is epstein bar virus infection. There are other symptoms like lymph node swelling, fatigue, spleen enlargement etc. See your doctor.
What does it mean that my blood work came back and my CK Total and MCH was low and my WHITE BLOOD CELL COUNT was high?
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 know the actual values rather than high or low. For 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. Get HPV vaccine.
Can be: With mononucleosis you can have an elevated lymphocyte count with a significant percentage of them being atypical lymphocytes or "virocytes".
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).
I have high c reactive protein, high white blood cell count and high C3 protein. This has been going on for a year. What could it be?
Inflammation: Some of the things you mention such as a high CRP may be a sign of inflammation. The high C3 is of no clinical significance.
No it is normal: Normal values for total white cell count is 4500 to 10000.
