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. ...Read more

How high would my white blood cell count have to be to be leukemia?

How high would my white blood cell count have to be to be leukemia?

Not high at all: Leukemia is a word that means "white blood". Originally leukemia was recognized when the white blood count was very high. However, as we develop a better understanding, we know that leukemia can be associated with a very low, normal, or high white blood cell count. What is important is the process going on in the bone marrow. ...Read more

Leukocytosis: Your white count is slightly high. A high white count (leukocytosis) can be caused by many different things, most commonly an infection. Some people have high white cells due to a medication they are taking. Others are born with it. Others develop it because of dangerous conditions such as leukemia. Please consult with a hematologist to determine what form of leukocytosis you have. ...Read more

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.

Can steroid abuse cause high white blood cell count and protein in your urine? My white blood cell count is 15

Can steroid abuse cause high white blood cell count and protein in your urine? My white blood cell count is 15

Maybe but...: Our first concern is to rule out a serious infection (is your peripheral smear abnormal? Are the white cells primitive / angry-looking? Do you have symptoms?) and real kidney disease (how much protein, is it mostly albumin?) I hope you'll reconsider anabolic steroid use (if it's this kind of steroid); every guy I know who's tried this has regretted it. ...Read more

I have high blood platelets that increased a little over 2, 000 in 6 days and my white blood cell count went up my back/hips hurt, dizzy, nauseous?

HemOnc: An elevated platelet count of 2, 000 (thromocytosis) should be evaluated for and treated asap. The elevated platelet alone can cause your symptoms. Essential thrombocytosis or another myeloproliferative disorder is considered and should be ruled out. Additional blood tests, bm biopsy and hematology-oncology consultation is required. ...Read more

How high is high white blood cell count!?

HIGH WBC >10.5k: A normal white blood count (WBC) is in the range: 4k--10.5k (4000-10, 500) in most labs around the country. So any WBC >10.5k is elevated. I see elevated wbc's all the time, so I recommend following it closely (perhaps rechecking in 1 month with 'a differential'). If you have symptoms of a blood disorder you may need further testing, now. ...Read more
