Leukocytes Are Increased With Nausea, Vomiting, Weight Loss And Weakness?
good night, lately my appetite is reduced, I feel easily tired, dizzy, nausea and even vomiting and my weight decreased without cause up to 7kg after I checked into the health center it turns out that my leukocytes reached 11,800. Is it dangerous? Do I have to be hospitalized? Thank you
Hello, thanks for the question.
White blood cells or leukocytes are one component of blood cells that function as the body's defense system. This increase in the number of leukocytes is called leukocytosis. These cells will increase in number if there are germs or foreign objects in the body to kill these germs. Some other things that cause leukocytosis include abat reactions, abnormalities of the immune system that produce excessive white blood cells, disorders of the bone marrow, and so forth. The number of normal adult leukocytes generally varies by laboratory, but on average 4000-10,000 / mm3. If the increase in leukocytes is accompanied by complaints, such as high fever, continuous nausea, vomiting, weight loss, loss of appetite, body weakness, fatigue, pain, and other complaints should consult a doctor. The doctor will conduct a direct examination and other additional examinations if needed so that the handling can be more precise, tailored to the conditions and causes of the underlying disease. To reduce complaints, you should compress if you have a fever, consume a fever-lowering medication prescribed by your doctor or that can be bought freely at the pharmacy, eat soft food first, eat small portions of food, but often, have enough rest, and multiply the consumption of fluids.
Thus, hopefully it helps
