At this time, thank God for almost a week there was no fever and appetite and the milk had no problems and even more active. What I asked was whether leukocytes were high because they were typed sndri? How dangerous is the number of leukocytes? I’m afraid it can lead to leukemia … thanks doctor

Hello, thanks for the question.


White blood cells or leukocytes are one component of blood cells that function as the body's defense system. These white blood cells can increase in response to the body's defense when there are germs or foreign bodies in the body. This increase in leukocytes is most often caused by infections, both viruses, bacteria, parasites, and fungi in any part of the body, can be in the respiratory tract, digestive tract, urinary tract, and so forth. Typhus is an infectious disease caused by Salmonella thypii that attacks the digestive system, symptoms that can occur include fever and digestive tract symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, liquid bowel movements, constipation, and so forth. In addition, an increase in the number of leukocytes can also be caused by other causes such as blood cell malignancy or leukemia, and so forth. An increase in white blood cells in leukemia usually occurs very significantly and is followed by an abnormality in the number of other blood cells, such as red blood cells and platelets / platelets, as well as poor patient clinical condition. In cases of increased leukocytes caused by infection, usually the number will return to normal within a few days if the underlying disease has been resolved. If within a few days after treatment, the number of leukocytes is still high, especially if accompanied by other complaints, we recommend consulting a pediatrician. The doctor will conduct a direct examination and other additional examinations if needed so that the handling can be more precise. It is best to always take care of the child's health, provide healthy and nutritious food according to his age, meet fluid needs, and routinely check the growth and development of children and immunizations according to the schedule given.


Thus, hopefully it helps.


Greetings, Dr. Nova
