40000 Leukocyte Levels At The Age Of 58 Years With A History Of High Blood Pressure?
Good afternoon r n r nAnd now, my mother is being treated at RSU. After checking the leukocyte levels are far from the standard of 10000. The results from the lab turned out to be 40000. Now has a fever. Before the blood check indeed my mother had nosebleeds for 5 hours without stopping. The possibility of inflammation of the throat and nose. What I want to ask is whether the effects of leukocytes that exceed these standards will cause more serious disease? My mother has high blood pressure. Thank you in advance
Hello, Jumiran Ganjends Lobow, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Leukocytes are white blood cells. Normally in adults leukocytes number 3500-10500 blood permicroliter cells. If the number of white blood cells is more than normal, then the condition is called leukocytosis. Increased leukocytes can be caused by several possibilities, for example there is an inflammatory process in the body, certain infections are happening, autoimmune diseases, disorders of the spinal cord that cause abnormal white blood cell production, blood disorders, etc.
Leukocytosis is a sign that there is an underlying disease. To determine the underlying disease, more complete data is needed starting from the history of the disease, a complete physical examination, and other supporting examinations. The possibility of cure and treatment depends on the cause of the high number of leukocytes. For example, if the cause of an increase in leukocytes is due to inflammation or infection, drugs will be given to relieve inflammation and antibiotics, if the inflammation and infection have improved, the number of leukocytes will return to normal.
For that, follow the therapeutic advice from a doctor who checks your mother directly to get therapy that is in accordance with the current conditions.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
