What does your white blood cell count is a little high mean?

a high white count can means lots of things, from simple infection to cancer.....it would be good to have it checked

your sick and need to get better

You have an infection of some sort. You're body is trying to get rid of it.

Dr. Phil-lys
It means that you are fighting off an infection in your body. It could be a from a flu to an STD.

Tact is highly overrated
Your body is fighting off something.

White cells
Total white blood cells - All the white cell types are given as a percentage and as an absolute number per litre.
A complete blood count with differential will also include:

Neutrophil granulocytes - May indicate bacterial infection. May also be raised in acute viral infections.
Lymphocytes - Higher with some viral infections such as glandular fever and. Also raised in lymphocytic leukaemia CLL.
Monocytes - May be raised in bacterial infection
Eosinophil granulocytes - Increased in parasitic infections.
Basophil granulocytes
A manual count will also give information about other cells that are not normally present in peripheral blood, but may be released in certain disease processes.

It could mean nothing really, or it could mean you have an infection somewhere. Your white blood cells help to fight off bacteria. Ask your doctor.

It means they're fighting an infection. If you're white blood count is too low it means you don't have enough "soldiers" to fight off infections. People with HIV/Aids have low white blood cell counts.

You have some infection

i doesnt effect

Ă¢?£China Ă¢?Â¥ DollĂ¢? 
It might be something bad, it was bad for me, I forget why but you should probably consult your doctor.

Lotta antibodies?

A high white cell count is usually the sign of infection. It can also mean there is a bit of a war (layman terms) with your blood going on. Hopefully, it's just a case of infection that can be dealt with by using antibiotics.

that there is something wrong but sometimes you don't have to worry
check your doc.

It means you have an infection in your body. You need antibiotics.

could mean that you are getting sick

Depends Really What It Means. Are You On Any Medicaition?

Generally, a higher count of leukocytes (white blood cells) means that there may be some kind of infection in your body. If you heard this from your doc, he probably prescribed something for you depending on if it was bacterial or viral.

Please don't be like most of America (and a previous answer) and go running for the antibiotics right away. That is not the best way to go about things. The only time you need antibiotics is when you know you have a bacterial infection of some sort. Antibiotics don't do anything for viral infections. Having said that, a slightly raised white blood cell count may not mean anything, but there is a chance that you have an infection of some type. This could be something simple like an allergen in your system, or you've encountered a type of virus/bacteria that you have already fought off once before and the "memory cells" are doing they're job to ensure it doesn't make you sick again. There is a small chance that it could be something more serious, but just be aware of your condition and take the proper steps if needed. Nobody knows how you feel better than you do! Good luck.
