Can anybody let me know what these results mean with White Blood Cell Count?
Normal Range: 4.0-11.0
My Results:
October 2007-11.3
April 2008-10.5
December 2008-15.0
July 2010-14.9
August 2011-16.3 Red blood Cell count 3.5



What would cause your White Blood Cell Count to go up if there is no infection? I was told there was no infection.
