How To Deal With Gallstones And An Increase In White Blood Cells?
, yesterday I just consulted with a specialist in dalemic disease, finished on USG u0026amp; in the blood + urine check, he said my gallstones were still small … is that really dangerous or not? Moreover, I like stomach acid to rise, when I had a relapse and entered the ER because I couldn’t breathe, I felt like I wanted to die, and during the day I checked the leukocyte blood was still 8 at night when I entered the ER, the leukocytes became 12 … how was that?
Hello Alestina, Thank you for the question.
Gallstones are stones that form in the gall bladder which are mostly formed by cholesterol. Gallstone sufferers generally do not experience symptoms unless these stones are large enough and cause blockage of the bile ducts. A person has a higher risk of developing gallstones if they are female, aged 40 years and over, are overweight, and are women who have given birth. In general, if the gallstones are small and do not cause symptoms in the sufferer, this condition does not require special medical treatment. Gallstones need more attention if they cause symptoms. The treatments recommended by doctors also vary from medications to removal of the gallbladder. If this condition is not treated properly, the sufferer can experience complications in the form of inflammation / infection of the gallbladder and bile ducts and can cause jaundice.
White blood cells / leukocytes are blood cells that function to fight infection. An increased number of leukocytes generally indicates an infection in the body. But the results of this examination cannot stand alone because it must be adjusted to the patient's complaints and the doctor's physical examination. Please consult the results of this examination with the doctor who has examined you.
Hope this information is helpful.
