The normal range for WBC count is 4,300 to 10,800 cells per cubic millimeter (cmm) or 4.3 to 10.8 x 109 cells per liter.
But most labs don’t give a standard reference range for this test. Because reference values are dependent on many factors, including patient age, gender, sample population, and test method, numeric test results have different meanings in different labs. Your lab report should include the specific reference range for your test.Did your lab give you the reference range?
If your doctor is confirming 10.5 to be leucocytosis,then he may be finding symptoms pertaining to high white blood cell count. Leukocytosis may be caused by several conditions including bacterial infection, inflammation, leukemia, trauma, or stress.
Ulcerative colitis is a chronic inflammation of the large intestine (colon). An elevated white blood cell count and sed rate both reflect ongoing inflammation in the colon. So elevated WBC count is often found in ulcerative colitis.Did you have any symptoms of abdominal pain, rectal bleeding, and diarrhea.?They are often found in this disease.
Confirmation is by sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy.
As you have already tested for HIV and it has been negative,so chances of HIV are feeble.
Pls consult a gastroenterologist for treatment of ulcerative colitis and see if the count improves or not.
