White Blood Cells Increase When Suffering From Leptospirosis?

Hello, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
White blood cells are part of blood cells that have a very important role in the human immune system. When the body is experiencing an infection, the production of these white blood cells can increase to help deal with the infection in the body, this also applies to leptospirosis infection. However, it should be noted that not all infections can cause an increase in white blood cells. Some types of viral infections can actually cause a decrease in white blood cells.
In the case of leptospirosis, in the first 3 days of symptoms, the leukocyte count may decrease or be normal. After the 3rd day, the leukocyte count can increase until the 5th day the leukocyte count can be more than normal.
