I AM SO SCARED
Im 15, male, healthy, dont smoke with severe severe anxiety. Im 5ft 8. My grandmother had to much leukocytes i think...but no ilness.
Yes, the WBC count is on higher side, but this could be due to recent viral infection. In leukemia there is a great increase in WBC count with abnormal cells as well. You can eat healthy, drink plenty of fluids (water, juice, clear soup etc) and repeat the count after one- two months. In all probability it will normalize. If your grandmother had a high leucocyte or WBC count then maybe there is an autoimmune disease such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus or IBS etc in the family. At times the count can be on slightly higher side without any cause. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care!
