wbc and vomiting
Jul 20, 1999

can excessive vomiting increase the white blood count?

Response from Mr. Molaghan


Theoretically, yes. Any source of stress can cause demargination of the white blood cells, resulting in a mild increase. The major concern, however, would be that the source of the vomitting is the cause of the increased white blood count (i.e. infection).
