On medication for High Blood pressure

These levels are not dangerously high at all.
The WBC is slightly raised.
The most common reason why this is raised is because of a recent infection which you may have had.
Medications like steroids can also raise this.
You can go to the far east with these numbers and should not have any problems.
Let me know if you have more questions.
