Mild Eosinophilia: Blood eosinophilia commonly reflects an allergic, infectious, or neoplastic process or can be secondary to medications. An absolute eosinophil count of 689 puts you in the mild range which is often benign and nothing to worry about. If you have a history of allergies (like chronic rhinosinusitis) then this could explain or level. Talk to your primary doctor for more details about test results.
