Q: 

What You Should Know About High White blood cell count

A: Elevated white blood cell count (also known as leukocytosis) indicates that there is an increase in the production of white blood cells (WBC or leukocytes) in the body. It is the opposite of leukopenia, which is the decrease in the number of WBC. The main function of leukocytes is to fight infections within the body, which can be caused by bacteria, fungi, or viruses. High white blood cell count in the body can indicate an underlying health issue, such as anemia, bone marrow tumor, inflammatory disease, emotional or physical anxiety, tissue damage, infectious diseases, or even leukemia....


Q: 

Foods to increase red blood cell count

A: Firstly, you have to indentify the reason for the low red blood cell count in the body. If you have this problem then it could be due to lack food nutrition or anemia. Sometimes the lack of vitamins and minerals in the body can also cause a low red blood cell count. Maintaining a whole and balanced diet is the best way to ensure that you keep this problem at bay. Your diet must include both veg and non veg foods. Meat and fish are essential and at the same time you must eat plenty of legumes and greens as well. Hi Low count of red blood cell can lead to anemia. The...


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....


Q: 

Is It Normal For 15-month-olds To Have Low Red blood cell counts?

A: Not usually. Low red blood cell counts are not typically determined by age. It is best to first find out if it is low compared to all 15 month olds or low for your child. No. Low Red blood cell count in anyone is not considered normal. If you are concerned about this ask your child''s doctor about the causes and the potential risks of this issue. No. It is not normal for anyone, particularly toddlers, to have low red blood cell counts. See a doctor or hematologist if you are not doing so already. Depending on how low, not to low probably is nothing, but if is high you...

It''s highly unlikely that you would have a drop in your white blood cells from one HS1 cold sore because these cells are needed to fight the infection....


Q: 

What Is The Relationship Between The White blood cell count And HIV?

A: HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is the virus that causes AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Disease). This retrovirus enters the body. The body issues a response to the white blood cells to kill the virus. Instead, HIV infects and damages these white blood cells. When HIV finally sufficiently lowers the white blood cell count, a patient will become infected with AIDS. The white blood cells are the cells of the immune system defending the body of the infectious diseases. And HIV are those which attack the immune system and make them weak....
