What Is A Good Wbc Count
Dear sir, my WBC count is 11600 cells. Is it bad or good? If it is bad, please tells us what I will do? I am a 35 years old male.
I am 27 yrs old male. I have total wbc count 13400, neutriophils75%, lympho16%, eosino3%, monocytes6%.Is it good or bad for health. Causes infertility.
Wbc: Seems as though you have an infection of some sort based on that lab only. More history is needed ...Read more
Hi have had some blood tests. Came back ok. Rbc count 5.3 and WBC count was 5.8.Would t cells been checked in the WBC count? Is 5.8 good?
Yes. Yes.: T cells are a subset of the lymphocytes which are just one of the five types of white blood cell. So technically t cells are counted in the white blood cell count, but they represent a very small portion of the total and the effect of any change in t cells is drowned out by the large abundance of other cells. If you are concerned about t cell disorders it would be wise to be tested. ...Read more
Good morning my WBC count is polymorphonuclears 73% lymphocytes 17% monocytes 8% and eosinophils 2% is there any reason to worry about??
No: The percentages actually mean nothing by themselves. The absolute counts matter, but only if they are far from the reference range or there are abnormal forms. We can't calculate the absolute values because you didn't include the total white count. ...Read more
I did a blood test WBC count is 13.800 and platelets are 301.000 is there a problem neutrophils 60% 8.28 ×10^9L Lymph 40% 5.52 is this good or bad?
Normal: Results look to be in the normal range; however, you should discuss them with the physician who ordered them --- what matters is the symptoms that led to your test and how you are feeling/if they have resolved. A lab test is just a marker that isn't useful without context. ...Read more
Are there diff cases of c. Diff. Is it cureabel. Never blood in stool since had it. Is that a good sign. Wbc count was about normal. Small case of it?
Clostrid. Difficile: Yes, many cases are easily treated and resolved without problems or complications. The only concerns occur when the infection remains uncontrolled and has the potential to get out of the colon into the bloodstream, or to create micro-perforations in the gut wall and let other organisms out. You sound as if everything is going well. Good luck and best wishes. ...Read more
Keep getting canker sores on my tongue and lips. My b12 is fine, im hiv neg, my wbc count is 3.8 a little low but since my other levels were good my dr said it was fine. What could this be? Why did it come so sudden? How can I permanently fix them?
No permanent fix.: Canker sores have many causes, if these are canker sores. There are other afflictions like lichen planis that can manifest as sores in these areas. That can occur with other illnesses or weakened immune condition. Stress or trama can bring these outbreaks. However, they can be triggered by exposure to an irritant. I have pt who break out when they have red wine or nuts. Look at your intake. ...Read more
Not really.....: The differential (ie., the percentage of the different kinds of wbcs), plus some additional details as to why you were checking in the first place would be much more informative. In the proper context, this WBC count would not be concerning to me. Feel free to chime in with additional details. ...Read more
A wide range.....: Of normal is seen for both men and women. Generally, a range of 4k-10k per ul is commonly reported by most labs. However, the number of wbcs is only part of the picture. The relative amounts of each type of WBC count is also important to consider. If you have a more specific question or concern, please feel free to post here or talk with your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more
No: It is close to the upper range of normal WBC count normal WBC ct range is 4-11, 000 approximately. Individaula lab variations may be there also.. You can get it followed if you have any concerning conditions like infections by your doctor in 1-2 wks time and after that if needed, per the recommendation of your docotr. ...Read more
Seek doctor advice: High WBC count should be interpreted considering the clinical condition. The degree of elevated count, the progression of the elevation and the particular type of WBC predominatly elevated are some of the elements that lead to particular diagnosis. Most common cause is infection, others are non-infection inflammatory syndromes, use of corticosteroids, blood disorders and hormonal conditions. ...Read more
Clinical context: This number might highlight as 'elevated' depending on your lab's cut-off values. The question is 'what' is your baseline WBC? If your body is stressed for some reason (often infection, but other things as well), the WBCs could increase. Also people without a spleen can have a higher WBC than others. Best to ask your doc about it or get a full evaluation on Health Tap. ...Read more
Leukocytosis: It means leukocytosis which is an abnormally high white blood cell (WBC) count. This finding can be associated with multiple clinical conditions including infections/inflammatory states but also leukemia. A value of 20, 000 is quite high (normal: 400 - 11, 000), therefore a consultation with your physician or a hematologist is strongly recommended. ...Read more
Depends on symptoms: An elevated WBC can mean infection or a number of other things. 15000 can be normal in some situations. It is important to describe any new symptoms that you may be experiencing. This will help in determining if the elevation in wbcs is normal or a sign of something more serious. Please follow up with the provider who ordered your cbc. ...Read more
May be infection:
There are many causes of increased wbc. It is not feasible to provide an opinion without examining a blood smear, taking history and may be doing additional tests. If would be prudent to see your doctor. Consult this site for info.

Why would u: Want to? You should know why it is low and if it is pathology or normal variation. If it is from a marrow problem, you need to find out what that is. If it is from treatment, it may or may not be indicated. One needs to establish a diagnosis not treat a sign or symptom. ...Read more
Take away cause: The key is to figure out why the WBC is low to begin with. The goal should be to eliminate that. Some cancers can cause leukopenia (low wbc). Also, some chemotherapy meds can cause it. In certain circumstances, your doctor may recommend a medication that stimulates your bone marrow to produce more wbc. An example is called neupogen. ...Read more
How does she FEEL?: White cell counts mean nothing in the absence of clinical history and knowing what the cells themselves actually look like. This may be nothing whatever, or the stress of some illness, or a serious infection, or early leukemia. We have a saying in laboratory medicine, "Focus on the person, not the numbers." ...Read more
See below...: A common cause of increased WBC is represented by infectious/inflammatory conditions; however, other clinical associations are possible including more serious diseases like leukemia. It is important to know what type of cell causes the increased wbc. Is it because of an increase in neutrophils or lymphocytes? A CBC with differential and morphology would be a reasonable next step. ...Read more
