Question
my wbc result was 16.2 it is above normal, what are the causes? & how do i prevent it.

Answer
Hello Kaharodin,
Warm welcome you!
The reason for elevated wbc count could be any infections. Most probably bacterial infection. But to know exactly what is causing it we need complete blood count and may be some other lab investigations. You can prevent it by maintaining good hygiene, and protecting yourself from contagious diseases.  If you need any further info please contact me.

Thanking day,
Have a great day!
