High white blood cell count


White blood cells, also known as leukocytes, play a crucial role in your body's immune system by fighting off infections and diseases. If you have a high white blood cell count, it means that you have more white blood cells than normal. This can be a sign of an underlying medical condition.


There are many causes of high white blood cell count, including infections, inflammation, and certain types of cancer. In some cases, the cause is unknown.


Symptoms of high white blood cell count can vary, depending on the underlying cause. In some cases, there may be no symptoms at all. In other cases, you may experience fatigue, fever, or weight loss.


If you have high white blood cell count, it’s important to see a doctor. Your doctor may perform tests to determine the cause of your high white blood cell count and suggest a treatment plan. In some cases, treatment may include medications to decrease the production of white blood cells or to treat the underlying medical condition.


You can also take steps to manage your high white blood cell count by practicing good hygiene, such as washing your hands frequently and avoiding close contact with people who are sick.


In conclusion, high white blood cell count is a serious condition that requires medical attention. By working with your doctor, you can develop a plan to manage your high white blood cell count and reduce your risk of infections and other medical problems. Stay informed and stay healthy.


Natural Home Remedies to decrease High White Blood Cell Count


Leucocytosis is a medical term used to describe a high white blood cell count, and it can be a sign of an underlying medical condition. While medical treatment is necessary for managing leucocytosis, there are some natural home remedies that may help to reduce your white blood cell count:

  1. Reduce stress: Stress can increase white blood cell production, so it's important to manage stress through exercise, relaxation techniques, or counseling.

  2. Exercise regularly: Regular physical activity has been shown to reduce white blood cell count, as well as improve overall health.

  3. Eat a balanced diet: A diet rich in fruits and vegetables and low in saturated fats and sugar can help to reduce white blood cell count.

  4. Avoid exposure to toxins: Exposure to chemicals, such as tobacco smoke and air pollution, can increase white blood cell count, so it's important to reduce exposure to toxins.

  5. Maintain a healthy weight: Obesity has been linked to high white blood cell count, so it's important to maintain a healthy weight through a balanced diet and exercise.


It's important to note that these remedies should not replace proper medical treatment and always consult with your doctor before trying them. A healthy diet and lifestyle can also help maintain proper white blood cell levels.
