Hi!
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!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
