It just said "moderate white blood cells"?I'd think "moderate" would be used to describe an increase or decrease in the numbers of white blood cells.Like "moderately elevated white blood cells".Moderate generally means some but not to much of. Usually for something that is average amounts of things they use normal. So I'm not sure how to interpret moderate white blood cells unless they are indicating some change that isn't in the normal range, but isn't a big change outside the normal range. If there is no descriptor refering to change it sounds like they may be using moderate instead of average numbers of them.White blood cells increase whenever your immune system is fighting something off. Decreases may be seen in certain diseases as well.K.------------------I have no financial, academic, or any other stake in any commercial product mentioned by me.My story and what worked for me in greatly easing my IBS: http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/Forum17/HTML/000015.html [This message has been edited by kmottus (edited 07-09-2001).]
