I have been diagnosed on and off with Crohn's.............I am wondering how often do "normal" people have a high white blood count?  I have had several ER visits and other visits to the MD that reveal a high white count.  Does this happen several times a year to "normal people"?

I do not think so! Almost always it means INFLAMMATION which we al ready know us with Crohn's have. I am not sure that NORMAL people get this unless they have an infection of some sort!

I am not sure @ the high white count...I can tell you however I had several emergency room visits and admissions in a short period of time and it took over six months to get a proper diagnosis of CD. Plus I had complained for yrs prior @ my stomach pain. That was over 10 yrs ago.

High white blood cell counts can happen for a lot of reasons: infection, inflammation, allergies, taking steroids (like prednisone), and strong emotional or physical stress. Did the doctor do a differential to see which types of white blood cells are high? Knowing that can help determine why you have a high white count. As for how often "normal" people have a high white cell count, I don't know.
