Any symptoms?: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, an absolute eosinophil count of 1.8 per warrants monitoring. Common causes of eosinophilia are allergies. asthma, skin inflammation and parasitic infestation.
