Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Leukocytes or white blood cells are produced in the bone marrow, acting as the body's immune system against infectious diseases. The normal amount will vary in each measuring device, where the normal range value will be given by each laboratory. In the laboratory where you carry out the examination, the normal range is 5,000-10,000 / mm3. So that your child's leukocyte value is below the normal value, this condition is called Leukopeni. Many things can be the cause, namely:
1. Viral infection.
2. Autoimmune diseases (the body's immune system attacks the body's normal cells themselves).
3. As a result of certain drugs, such as antibiotics and anticonvulsants.
To overcome Leukopeni, you must increase the nutritional intake of children. Give children foods high in calories and high in protein. Give the child routine white chicken eggs or cork fish. Children can consume up to 6 eggs from a native chicken egg. Chicken eggs must be cooked well. Give also children vegetables and fruits to meet the needs of vitamins and minerals. Or you can provide food supplements that mainly contain vitamins B and C.
Don't forget to re-consult your child's blood test results. The doctor will match the laboratory results with clinical data of the child to find the cause of the disease.
Thus hopefully useful.
