A high WBC count on its own probably won't harm your body, but it's usually a sign of an infection or illness that can cause symptoms. High WBC levels can be caused by leukemia, inflammatory diseases, tuberculosis, and other medical conditions. When you're sick, your body produces extra white blood cells to fight off the infection. Other causes of high WBC levels include smoking, stress, excessive exercise, and pregnancy.
Treatment & Medication
Treatment for high WBC levels involves treating the underlying cause. If you have an illness or infection that is raising your WBC levels, your levels should balance out when you're healthy again. If your WBC levels are elevated because of factors like stress or smoking, your doctor may recommend making lifestyle changes to lower them.
White blood cells are an essential part of your body's immune system. They fight off bacteria, viruses, and germs that invade your body and cause illnesses or infections. High or low WBC levels can be a sign of an underlying health issue and can affect how well your immune system works.
