I can't remember the exact ranges, something like 11 to 14 and I think it is percentages. My mom's oncologist measures this and her platelet count to determine if she will receive chemo. He has a baseline number for the WBC and I think it is if it drops below 4 (can't remember the exacts). When it is too low he won't give her treatment that week. She then returns in a week and has her blood counts tested again. This past week her WBC was too high, due to a Neulasta shot, and she wasn't able to receive treatment. I hope this helps.
