Hi all. I was just curious if anyone else has a high wbc count. I know that sice I take prednisone that it will be higher than normal. My normal count when I am feeling well is around 13, 000. When I am feeling bad it has gone as high as 43, 000. I know it means you are fihhting an infection but they can never figure out why mine goes wild. Does anyone else have this issue?

Hi There;
Lupus is a disease that is characterized by inflammation throughout the body. Inflammation can cause your wbc to be high. The count can be quite high when the disease is active also.!

Peace and Blessings
