Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. White blood cells or leukocytes are one of the blood components whose function is the immune system. More specifically, white blood cells are further divided into neutrophils, lymphocytes, monocytes, eosinophils and basophils. The condition of the rise in white blood cells is called leukocytosis, and this condition can be caused by various things, such as:
Bacterial and viral infections Asthma Allergy Tuberculosis Parasitic infections Blood cancer Lymphoma or cancer related to the immune system Autoimmune diseases
And there are many other reasons which will actually be more specific if it is known which part of the white blood cells is increased. But even so, it is still necessary to extract history and physical examination as well as further support because the condition has many possibilities. Regarding the relationship with sweating, this is still not specific, it could be due to tuberculosis, it could also be due to hyperthyroidism and it could be due to other reasons. For this reason, we cannot mention the dangers until the diagnosis is made.
Our advice, still follow the detection process carried out by the doctor who treats your in-laws. Ask what steps the doctor takes to be able to estimate the diagnosis and what are the possibilities so far from the examination results. You have the right to ask questions about this until you understand, especially if you are delegated as a family member who has direct contact with the doctor in charge. So, hopefully it answers your question.
