My blood panel came back with some notiable highs and lows. I was expecting the WBC to be somewhat high dure to the crohn's but even with 2 weeks on predsione WBC still camd back fairly high. \
Does amyone know if these are normal crohn's levels. I would expect everyone with active diease to high WBC and neutro (like me)
 WBC                       12.84     high
 Lymph auto%          15.4       low
 mono   auto%            3.0       low
 neurto auto%           81.3        high 
 neurtro auto abs%     9.63      high
 eos auto%                  0.1       low
 bsa auto %                 0'1       low

My WBC has gotten as high as 28 without noticable symptoms. Prednisone can make those levels very high, all it means is that there is inflammation in your body or that prednisone is present. I'm assuming you got these numbers from your GI or GP. If you are worried you can always ask for a referral to a hemotologist. I had some unusual numbers a few months back and had to go see one, turned out to be nothing but its nice to know that my GI is looking out for me.

I wouldn't be worried but a call to your GI might make you feel better.
