Hello,


I have too many leucocytes in the blood: is that causing my asthma?
Hello all. I have been urgently sent to hospital last week because I got a severe asthma attack. They have made a blood test that showed that I had 23,650 leucocytes instead of the usual 4000-10,000.


I have started wondering if my immune system could be causing my asthma attack and if it can be cured?

Hi. Well you are right, though the white blood cells are present in our blood to defend us against infections of any kind, an excess of them can also cause asthma attacks. This is because they tend to accumulate whenever allergic reactions like you had with your asthma happen and can hence create even more servere attacks. You should however tell this to your doctor so that he can make a follow up on it.
