How To Deal With Increased Leukocytes?
I want to ask, I am 32 years old, Friday, March 1, I checked my blood. My leukocytes increased to 14,800, normal to 10,500, and my erythrocytes also increased from 5.50 to normal 5.22, I want to ask whether the increase in leukocytes and my erythrocytes is dangerous, is there a medicine to reduce it? . Lastly, I took care of my teeth and was given cataflam because my gums were swollen if the effect of the drug was thanked.
Hello Heva, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you need to know that the treatment given by a doctor is always based on the patient's diagnosis. The diagnosis can only be made by taking an history (question and answer about your symptoms), physical examination, and additional examinations if needed. Laboratory tests are additional examinations whose function is only to complete history taking and physical examination. Doctors cannot provide treatment based on laboratory results alone.
Leukocytes can increase due to several conditions, including:
the presence of autoimmune infections other inflammatory conditions drug side effects (cataflam does not cause this condition) interruption of blood cell production (for example in blood cancer) Erythrocytes can increase due to several conditions, including:
compensation for chronic oxygen deprivation (eg living in high altitudes / mountains, smoking, having certain heart or lung disease, hemoglobinopathy, etc.) effects of using certain drugs (cataflam also does not cause this effect) dehydration kidney cancer blood production in excessive bone marrow ( eg polycythemia vera) Increase in leukocytes and erythrocytes is not always dangerous. To find out whether the condition is dangerous or not, further examination is needed (of course, anamnesis and physical examination are also needed). Therefore, it is a good idea to bring the results of the laboratory to a doctor who requests an examination so that it can be analyzed more fully and related to the symptoms that you are experiencing right now and the results of the physical examination.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
