yes, if the thyroid is overactive it will produce a high white blood cell count. i would get the thyroid levels checked to be sure. once the thyroid is under better control the white cell count should get back to normal.
I have had a high white blood cell count for 4 years now. But, now I am showing more symptoms of hypothyroidism. You posted that hyper would elevate the wbc's. Will the disease itself whether its high or low do the same. I have a doctor I have been seeing for 4 years now who is telling me I have CLL. I have never really believed that is the reason for my high wbc but I'm no doctor. Had my TSH checked by a doctor and he said it was fine, but that was 2 yrs ago and with all my symptoms 2 yrs ago don't see why that quack didn't send me to a endocrinologists instead of a hemotologist. Any information you can give me about this disease would be greatly appreciated. I do have an appointment with an endo next month hopely She will do the correct testing...
