What does it mean when your white blood count and red blood count is high?

Infection/dehydratio. White blood cells (WBC) are those cells that help fight off infection. The most common reason for an increase is infection, but could indicate a drug reaction, or even some cancers. High red blood cell (rbc) are the cells that carry oxygen to/carbon dioxide from your bodies tissues. High count could be dehydration, heart disease, or low oxygen levels in blood. A doctor can interpret results.
