Ignore it: If you feel well and there are no bizarre white cells, this is almost certainly just a random fluctuation. Levels rise and fall chaotically in everybody; you might be able to drive your white count to 20000 by swimming in cold water for half an hour. ...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

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

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

Is a 12, 500 WBC count high?

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
