Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for contacting Ayurveda with your health concern.

1. A high leulocyte count does not mean that there is disease inside the body but can also indicate any ongoing infection,stress, inflammation, or allergy which will require further investigation ( as your doctor has asked)

PS. To diagnose a disease, apart from WBC one has to go for DLC (differential leukocyte count) for differential diagnosis of Leukemia

2. If you cannot afford the tests look for the associated symptoms like fatigue,fever, weight loss,bleeding and then act accordingly.

3. Till then:
.Avoid: food high in fat,sugar and salt
.Take: low carbohydrate and diet rich in antioxidants (C & E), onion, garlic,grapes, green tea, vinegar,carrots,amla,orange.
