Hello There. I can understand your concern. WBC in some labs when in range of 4000-14000 is considered normal. but if in your lab reference range its high, then it could be due to some infection or inflammation. need not worry just take the treatment prescribed by your doctor and it will come down by itself. nothing else needed. best regards, Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.
