My white blood count is 12.0, and my creatine kinase is 465, and my thyroid is 0.49. What does this mean?

My white blood count is 12.0, and my creatine kinase is 465, and my thyroid is 0.49. What does this mean?

Not enough info: Your WBC is a little high. It could be many things; knowing the TYPE of WBC predominating the increase would help. Your CK is high, but there are different forms of the CK enzyme; without knowing which isozyme the elevation is due to hampers our ability to interpret it for you. And "thyroid" isn't 0.49 (makes no sense), but TSH or free T4 could be. We can't help by doing a lot of guessing. ...Read more

I know my white count is normal on 9.8. What i want to know, is why is it slightly on the high range? Always. Why not on the mid range? Causes?

I know my white count is normal on 9.8. What i want to know, is why is it slightly on the high range? Always. Why not on the mid range? Causes?

Wrong question: Please forgive my frankness. Reference ranges for labs are set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside at either end. A few screwball internet sites give the midrange as "optimal." ignore them. There are a host of genes, known and unknown, that affect baseline counts. Life's difficult enough without your troubling yourself about the vagaries of lab tests. Give yourself a break. ...Read more
