High White Blood Cell Count

Recommended Posts

A high white blood cell count was another one of my many symptoms. How is this connected to Celiac?


Diagnosed by my doctor on the basis of symptoms only (May 2005). My symptoms include:

-amenorhea (all my life)

-high prolactin levels

-major bloating ("Are you pregnant?")

-swollen ankles

-possible DH: had the rash on my elbows and scalp (gone now)

-joint pain

-childhood arthritis

-all dairy allergy

-dry skin

-fat in stool sample (no connection was made at the time...I was being tested for something else...When the doctor told me of the fat I replied by saying: "I eat alot of olive oil". DUH!!!!)

-mother is allergic to wheat

-ravenous appetite: I eat for 5 people

-light coloured stool

-pass stool 7 times a day sometimes

-hemorrhoids

-get the hiccups alot (not sure if this is related)

-some reflux

I'm sure there are more that I don't recall at the moment. SIGH.

I too had a high white blood count. I think it was because of the inflamation in the small intestines due to fighting off the glutens...this was before I was diog.

I think that I did have inflammation. Guess that can't be a good thing. Wonder if it means more damage. I also had high prolactin, which is associated with greater intestinal damage.
