Leukocytes or White Blood Cells (WBCs) are the blood cells responsible for your body's holistic immune health. Primarily categorized as neutrophils, lymphocytes, eosinophils, monocytes, and basophils, these WBCs play a pivotal role in fighting off infections caused by foreign bacteria, viruses, and other germ-related invasions into your body. A Total leukocyte count test (TLC Test) aims at measuring the total number of WBCs in your body. 

A high white blood cell count or lower than normal WBC count may indicate underlying health complications and potential infections or inflammations. However, an elevated WBC count can also be caused due to pregnancy and as a response to certain medications. 

You should get your total WBC count result verified by your healthcare provider to arrive at a conclusive diagnosis. 

Learn everything about the Total leukocyte count test before you book your lab test at-home. Understand the why, how, and what of this test.

Why Do Doctors Recommend Total Leukocyte Count?

Total Leukocyte Count Or White Blood Cell Count Test are often recommended as a part of the CBC tests and routine health checkups. Your healthcare provider may recommend a WBC differential test, which measures the amount of each type of WBC in your body if you exhibit specific symptoms of health complications.

  • If you are exhibiting signs of fever, chills, body aches, and headache, which are not associated with other health complications 
  • If you are consuming prescription medications to lower your body's immune response 
  • To screen and diagnose any white blood cell disorders 

Your healthcare provider will recommend a TLC Blood test if you are exhibiting signs of high white blood cell count. The symptoms of high TLC  in blood could indicate various underlying health conditions, and the TLC test helps in diagnosing and monitoring these conditions:

  • Autoimmune diseases 
  • Inflammatory diseases 
  • Bacterial or viral infections 
  • Leukaemia 
  • Hodgkin's disease 
  • Allergic reactions 

Your healthcare provider will recommend a TLC Blood test if you are exhibiting signs of low white blood cell count. The symptoms of Low TLC  in blood could indicate various underlying health conditions, and the TLC test helps in diagnosing and monitoring these conditions:

What Happens During TLC Blood Testing?

A TLC (Total Leukocyte Count) blood test determines the quantity of white blood cells (leukocytes) in a sample of your blood. White blood cells are an important component of the immune system and serve an important function in protecting the body from illnesses. The test is often included in a complete blood count (CBC) and gives important information about the state of your immune system.

  • Sample Collection: A small blood sample is collected, usually from a vein in the arm.
  • Sample Processing: The blood is processed in a lab to separate its components.
  • White Blood Cell Count: Technicians count the number of white blood cells in the sample.
  • Results Analysis: Results show the total white blood cell count per microliter of blood.
  • Clinical Interpretation: Healthcare providers assess immune system activity, looking for abnormalities.
  • Result Communication: Results are shared with you, and further tests may be recommended based on findings.

TLC testing is a quick and routine procedure providing insights into immune system health.
