What is WBC in the blood test?

What is WBC?
All of us have repeatedly tested blood, and the term "white blood cells" (WBC) means white blood cells or white blood cells. The amount of white blood cells is measured to determine what kind of infection is in the human body. These cells will react differently in infectious and non-infectious diseases, and this is due to the fact that these types of cells are part of the body's defense system.

Types of white blood cells and their tasks
Human blood is composed of two parts of the plasma and blood cells. Blood cells make up 45% of the blood volume, which includes red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. White blood cells are a part of the blood cells that are smaller than the other two, but play a vital role in immunity and body defense. White blood cells can be present in the blood and in the tissues. The white blood cell count in the blood is between 4,000 and 10,000 per cubic millimeter.

Natural values ​​in adults and children over 2 years of age The amount of white blood cell is between 5 and 10 thousand per ml of normal blood. Also, the WBC risk range below 2500 and over 30,000 represents diseases that can sometimes be dangerous.

Factors that reduce this amount:
Lack of vitamins
Brain and bone deficiencies like myelofibrosis
AIDS, influenza and typhoid are infections that reduce the number of white blood cells.
After chemotherapy, radiotherapy for the treatment of cancer also reduces this amount
The aplastic anemia in which the number of blood cells decreases due to different causes.
Leukemia (a cancer of the blood) that invades the cancerous cells of the bone marrow and causes problems in the production of white blood cells.
Severe infections
Autoimmune diseases such as lupus
Hyperthyroidism
Parasitic diseases
Immunosuppressive drugs, antibiotics and diuretics (diuretics) are one of the most commonly used drugs that reduce white blood cell count.
Factors that increase this amount:
Impact, severe injury, or severe burns
high fever
Having severe stress or physical or psychological pressure
smoking
Tuberculosis and Down Syndrome
There is an infectious disease in the body that increases the number of white blood cells to fight it.
The body's reaction to a drug, which leads to an increase in white blood cell production.
Bone marrow disease, which causes an abnormal increase in white blood cell production.
Increasing this parameter in the body causes infections, damage to body tissues, inflammation, and leukemia. Heavy exercise and intense physical activity also raise him for some time. Pregnancy and childbirth also increase this amount.
