Hello Doctor:

My white blood cell count is elevated around 0.97. My understanding is that normal is around 0.7. I have seen several doctors without any success for an explanation. This has been going on for about two years. I am looking for a possible explanation regarding this issue. I am looking forward to your response. Is this issue a sign of concern.

Thank You,
