Hi there.Thank you for your question.I am Dr. SH and will be helping you out with your concerns today.
I read your question that you posted.
Can you please let me know what kind of steroid and at what does your are on?
For what medical condition are you taking the steroid?
Please let me know.
No you do not pay me. On the website, an expert is only paid when you "rate" him/her. If you have not rated the other expert you have paid nothing. Plus you have a subscription anyways, so you do not need to pay anything extra even if you continue asking questions.
Prednisone is a very common cause of high white cell count.
It actually causes a high neutrophil count as well.
So I would not worry whatsoever with the high count.
It is almost certainly due to the steroid that you are on.
This session is open for any further questions that you may have. I would appreciate it if you rate me by clicking on one of the rating options at your end on the top right hand corner as that is the only way we, the experts, are credited on here for helping you out.Kindest regards
