A 25-year-old male asked:

My eosinophils count is 10%(reference value 2-8%) and monocytes 1%(ref value 2-4%) is this ok?

How do you FEEL???: As a pathologist / lab medicine physician, i always remind others to look at the person, not the number. The absolute eosinophil count in the morning (the percentage times the total white count) is usually under 500, but this is meaningless unless there are symptoms or physical findings and i'll assume you're otherwise healthy. If i'm right, ignore it.
