WBC (Total Counts)


WBCs are the body’s white blood cells. White blood cells help protect your body from infections and foreign bodies.

There are several types of white blood cells, including neutrophils or polymorphs (seen in acute infections), lymphocytes (seen in chronic infections and inflammation), monocytes( seen in chronic inflammation) , eosinophils( increased in allergies) and basophils.
