Herein, what is considered a high white blood cell count?
A high white blood cell count is an increase in disease-fighting cells in your blood. In general, for adults a count of more than 11,000 white blood cells (leukocytes) in a microliter of blood is considered a high white blood cell count.
Similarly, what if WBC count is more than 11000? High white blood cell (WBC) count Though it varies between individuals, a high white blood cell count (leukocytosis) is usually considered to be anything above 11,000 cells per μl of blood in an adult. This can be related to: Infection. Bone marrow disease.
Besides, how much WBC count is dangerous?
A high WBC count may result from an infection or leukemia. A person is at an increased risk of infection if his/her WBC count drops below 1,000 cells per microliter.
Is 12000 white blood cell count high?
White cell counts usually go up with an infection. Adult white cell counts range from 4,000 to 10,000. So your value of 12,000 is slightly elevated. But as with all medical tests, a small percentage of people will have results that are slightly out of the normal range even though nothing is wrong.
