    I just got diagnosed with a UTI and my WBC was 11, however, in 2016 it was 114.  My doctor wouldn't give me antibiotics until the culture results came back positive which it did.

    Hello.First of all it would be nice to see the full list of results,not just the WBC.Theese refference intervals are normal for 95% of the population, 2.5% will have elevated WBC which will be normal for them and 2.5% will have lower WBC again-normal.Since the results have been the same for 4 years i dont think you should worry.My lymphocytes are always on the high end or elevated.This has been so for like 5 years.Also do you have any other symptoms?
