A dear friend has Parkinsons. I am being informed that he has a high RED blood count (because of an as yet undiagnosed infection) that will prevent his move from hospital to a long term care facility. My own meager knowledge of the meaning of high WHITE blood cell count seems contrary to the above. Is there a clarification that would make more sense?
Could a relationship of red (high) to white (low) be of concern (i.e. an infection without rise in white blood cell count)?
