Why was the blood test done?
Have you been ill recently?
Do you take any medications?
Do you have the normal range for your lab?
Ok, thank you.

The white blood cell count is considered normal by US standards (the range of normal is approximately 4,400 to 11,000).
Therefore, a white blood cell count of 10,100 is not of any concern.

However, if it is elevated by the standards of the lab in Cyprus, then it could be due to several things.
An elevated white blood cell count can be elevated due to infections, stress, medications, exercise, smoking or lab error.

I would first simply repeat the test to see if it is truly elevated.

Again, it is normal according to US lab standards.

Feel free to ask any follow up questions you may have,
