Hello Agata, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Do you mean high leukocytes? Hb or hemoglobin is a red blood cell. Normally the red blood cells in children are in the range of 11.5-13.5 g / dL. Hemoglobin can indeed increase but the increase is not possible to reach 16,000 g / dL. If indeed the results of laboratory tests show that hemoglobin with such numbers, blood tests should be repeated. On blood tests that may reach this value are leukocytes (normally ranging from 4000-12,000 / UL), or platelets (normally 150,000-300,000 / UL).
If indeed what you mean is high leukocytes (leukocytosis), then several possible causes of increased leukocytes include:
infection (the most common cause) injury to the body inflammatory conditions (for example in autoimmune diseases, inflammatory bowel disease, etc.) allergic side effects of cancer drugs such as leukemia In the case of your child, the possible cause of leukocytosis is infection. You should discuss again with the pediatrician who treated him to find out more clearly the cause of leukocytosis in your child. Harmful or not your child's illness cannot be assessed from laboratory tests alone. Laboratory tests must always be adjusted to the patient's clinical condition to be able to determine the prognosis and likelihood of recovery in the patient.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
