The number of normal white blood cells is (4 to 10) × 109 / liter, which is 4,000 to 10,000 per cubic millimeter, and the average is 7,000. If between 4000 and 7000 means normal low, no treatment is needed; if it is less than 4000, it can be diagnosed as leukopenia. Even so, it does not necessarily require treatment, for example, only a slight reduction or a transient reduction, no further decline in the review, no symptoms or discomfort, then no need to be nervous, no treatment. Of course, white blood cells in the following situations need attention, and interventions are taken under the guidance of a doctor.
1. Serious reduction in white blood cell count requires urgent treatment. White blood cells are composed of granulocytes, lymphocytes, monocytes, and the like. Generally speaking, the most common and the most common cause of leukopenia is the reduction of granulocytes. If the degree of reduction is too obvious, the bacteria may spread rapidly in the state where the body completely or substantially loses resistance, and even enter the blood to cause sepsis, which is a serious threat to life. .
2, there are reasons to find leukopenia should be treated for the cause. There are three common causes of leukopenia: one is medicine, such as taking antipyretic analgesics, sulfonamides, etc. At this time, if the leukopenia is too obvious, it should be stopped or changed; the second is viral infection, such as epidemic. Inflammatory, viral infections, etc., on the one hand, active antiviral treatment should be actively carried out, and other drugs can be used to increase white blood cells; third, suffering from immune system diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, etc. The same intervention, the choice of drugs that can increase white blood cells.
3. Further diagnosis and treatment is required when there are red blood cells and/or thrombocytopenia. When leukopenia occurs, if the other two cells in the blood, red blood cells and platelets, change abnormally, the problem is more complicated. First, further examination is needed. The most common is bone marrow examination to rule out the presence or absence of other blood diseases before deciding.
