My WBC Blood Count Is 14.6 How Bad is that

A normal white blood cell count is between 4.5 and 10.0; some labs say between 4.3 and 10.8.

Your WBC count at 14.6 is elevated. Usually this means you have an infection.

There are many other reasons for an abnormally high WBC count, but this is a common test your doctor will look at if he suspects you have an infection.
