Hello from JA

Are there any abnormal cells found?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


No my doctor told me the cells are not abnormal or irregular just my bone marrow is producing too many wbc

OK
This can happen from infection or allergy.

Sometimes allergy is hidden.

Parasites is an infection that can be hidden.

I would have 5 stool samples checked.

If there is no cause found, a bone marrow biopsy might need to be done.


However, with only elevated whitecells this can be watched.

Use reply to let me know if you have further questions.
