I''ve never heard of a high white cell count when it comes to what I''m going to discuss here, but the chronic diarrhea is a sign of it. So I''m giving you the information to read just in case. They''re starting to recommend that people with IBS, or IBS-like symptoms such as chronic diarrhea, be tested for celiac disease, which is an intolerance to gluten (wheat, rye, Barley and oats). A lot of people with celiac were misdiagnosed as having IBS for years. (18 years for me). It takes an average of 11 years for a person with celiac to be diagnosed. Here''s a webpage...

Q: 

What While blood cell count Is Normal?

A: A white blood cell count, sometimes called leukocyte count or white count, is often ordered by a physician because it can help determine if a patient has an infection, an inflammation, or even an allergy. The normal range for a healthy person''s white blood cell count is 4,300 to 10,800 cells per cubic millimeter. At the hospital I work at, we use 3,000 to 10,000 per micoliter. Anything below 3,000 we consider the patient is at risk for getting an infection they can not fight, and we put them in protective isolation. Over 10,000 is usually an indication of an...

Q: 

What does a high white blood cell count usually signify?mine is 17.6?

A: You are probably not HIV positive? It simply means that you have an infection or really LOW red blood cells, which is an iron deficeincy. That is what I have.. Also have Anti-Nuclear Antibodies in my system. Not sure how that happened or what one can do to fix it. BUT with a high white blood cell count I would ask the doctor to do furthur testing just to be sure it is nothing serious.. Good Luck. That number doesn''t coincide with WBC readings, they usually range in the thousands. Infection - the body uses white blood cells to fight infection - better get a good checkup You''re asking the question here? Go to your...


Q: 

My blood Test Says My Absolute Lymphocytes Are At 8174. My White blood cell count Is 15.6.I Have Been Like This For Years. I Am 70 Years Old. Is There Anything I Can Do About This?

A: Usually our white blood cell count is genetic. Unless we''re sick it never really changes. If you''re that old and have lived with this count all your life, why change it? If your condition is stable and your doctor feels that no treatment is required, I wouldn''t recommend that you do anything special to treat this condition. If absolute lymphocyte count goes above 4000 per microliter and the white blood cell count is above 11, then it indicates infection or disease. Needs proper medical checkup and treatment....

This time, her fever is 103-104 and her wbc is 24,000. Last time, they said it was a virus, but they have done all sorts of tests this time, and still found nothing.

If anyone figures this out please post it! Thanks! My daughter 17 months old has been having the...


Q: 

High red blood cell count, hair loss, high RDW -- cancer?

A: I noticed that this question had a lot of views and since I''ve written this, I''ve found out a lot. My Mom''s hair quite falling out. She started taking folic acid with vitamin B12. A lack of B12 or folic acid can cause anemia just like a lack of iron can. A red blood cell count can be high if the cells have low hemoglobin. Mom''s hair is growing back. It may never be as thick as it was when she was younger, but it still looks good. So this whole problem was a matter of finding a vitamin deficiency. I''m glad it was an easy fix and she''s healthy....
