Lab values: If you have symptoms of a parasitic infection, which could include persistent fevers, abdominal pain, headaches, weight loss or others depending on the parasite, I wouldn't count on normal Eos to say you are not infected. Ask your doctor to review your symptoms and your other lab work with you. If Eos are the only thing suggesting parasitic infection, then you are A-O-K.
