white cell count
hi ladies, i have opened my post this morning and i have a letter stating the below :
the result of your recent blood test indicates a repeat test is required in 2 weeks, this is due to white cell count being 17.3
this is not cause for concern at present and repeating the blood test will indicate if any treatment is required.
iv also got a copy of the pathology report and my white cells are 17.3 and the range is 3.9-11.0
has anyone had similar to this? do you know what this could mean ? or what treatment might be necessary?
i always thought white blood cells fought infection, however i havent felt ill or under the weather at all ?
