May not mean: A whole lot. Rather than rbc number we focus on hemoglobin (HGB) and hematocrit (hct). A slight increase in eosiniphils could be a sign of an allergic process. Hgb a1c is good suggesting no type ii dm (or good control). The TSH is slightly high. Probably no "one cause".

More info needed: This question is not easily understood. What i can tell is that it may represent hypothyroidism and very mild diabetes.
