Low absolute eosinophils count. What does this mean? I am a 37 year-old female in excellent overall health. I am 5' 4", 121 pounds, and I am an avid exerciser (cardio and weight training 6 days per week). My recent laboratory results (blueprint for welln

Probably normal: Low eosinophils are often normal. It is impossible to say in an individual case like yours without a full history. Alcohol intoxication and over production of certain steroids in the body (such as cortisol) like from working out are causes. If you are a health regular exerciser your doctor would probably not mention it. ...Read more

What does it mean when your eosinophils is low?

What does it mean when your eosinophils is low?

Usually nothing: A bit of stress will drive them down, or if it's a small-sample count, there just didn't happen to be one among the first hundred or few hundred counted. You can drive yourself crazy reading the differential diagnosis for numbers -- but this isn't your warning of incipient cushing's if you feel well. Most labs mean little in the absence of symptoms and signs. ...Read more

What is the cause of low eosinophils? Mine was 0.0

What is the cause of low eosinophils?  Mine was 0.0

That is: completely normal. Eosinophils(a type of white blood cell) may be elevated in conditions such as allergic reactions, parasitic infections, and dermatitis. So, the "cause" of 0.0 eosinophils is the absence of any sign of those disorders. ...Read more

What does it me if my Eosinophils are low, but my RDW are high? My Eosinophils are 1% and my RDW are 14.6%

Nothing definite: These results alone are not concerning. Your Eosinophils can be 1% of your total count and be fine. The RDW tells about the red cells size in comparison to each other. The closer they are to the same size,the lower the RDW number. A little variance is fine. But would need the rest of the report to be sure there are no issues of concern. ...Read more

What does low abs eosinophils mean?

Nothing: I would draw no conclusion whatsoever from a random finding of an eosinophil count below the reference range. It's an obsolete marker for hypercortisolism but so insensitive and nonspecific as to be worthless. The ranges are set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside at either end. ...Read more

I have been sick. My blood results showed low RWD, high momocytes, and high eosinophils. What does that indicate?

Need more informati: Need more information on what you mean by sick. The eosinophils can suggest allergies, the high monocytes can indication recovering from an underlying illness or an active illness. The low RDW could suggest small RBCs and even anemia. Other information of you illness is not available. ...Read more

Should I have immunotherapy if my IG levels are low? How do I decrease my eosinophil levels? I have environmental allegories and is very allergic.

What type of Ig?: is it the IgE or the IgG? if it is the general IgE, then immunotherapy can be admistered if the specific IgE to a certain allergen is high, confirmed by skin testing, history and physical exam, as regards the high eosinophils, that can be due to allergies, if you haven't been evaluated by an allergist/immunologist already, please do so, check aaaai.org or acaai.org for an allergist in your area ...Read more

What can cause low neutrophils, high eosinophils and high limphocytes?

Depends: It depends on how high the eosinophil count is. If it is over 1500 on more than one occasions, you need to see an allergist or hematologist. Many things can cause high lymphocyte counts (viral infection, leukemia etc). ...Read more

My eosinophils 6%, which is high according to range given and neutrophils at 38% low in range given. Should I worry?

Not enough to worry: The above percentages reflect relative and not absolute values and your actual counts may be borderline normal when calculated from total WBC count. Otherwise in the absence of a clinical context and/or a trend these numbers are uninterpretable. ...Read more

My 13 yr ols son monocytes where high but the eosinophils was low show we be worried nithing else on cbc was abnormal?

Nonspecific ata: Monocytes are basically high class lymphocytes and often elevate with a variety of viral conditions. The data you give is not specific to any issue and not particularly worrisome. No test is as valuable as combining it with the history and exam to come up with an answer. ...Read more

What does low neutrophil with high eosinophil mean?

What does low neutrophil with high eosinophil mean?

Allergic Rxn, error,: Neutrophils are normally 45-74% in a count of wbc's while eosinophils are normally 0-7%. You might have a high count from an allergic reaction to something or it might be that some neutrophils might have been mistaken for eosinophils. Either way, this does not seem abnormal enough to indicate an underlying disorder. A repeat count would be advised. See your doctor. ...Read more

What causes constant high eosinophils and low neutrophils for 5 years straight?

How far off?: If the neutrophil count is above 1000 absolute, you are not in danger. If the eos are above maybe 1000 a hematology consult may be in order. Often we never find the explanation. If you are on any meds, even over the countr stuff, let your physician know. ...Read more

What does low #gran, low WBC & high eosinophils mean?

Possible infection: There are many causes of elevated eosinophil counts. However, is the eosinophil count elevated in raw number or just as a %. If you have a low WBC and a normal eosinophil count, it may appear to be higher than it actually is. Various disorders can cause increased eos. Parasites, allergies, and some rheumatologic diseases can all cause elevated results. ...Read more

What could it mean if you have low RDW, high momocytes, & High eosinophils on a lab result?

What could it mean if you have low RDW, high momocytes, & High eosinophils on a lab result?

Nothing: Lab values without clinical information mean nothing whatever. Low RDW never means anything. Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside. If you feel well, forget the monos, and if the eos are below 2000, get retested next year. Now, if you are SICK ... these are great keys to help find out the cause. But don't treat numbers.

My RBC and hgb is low, while my MCV and MCH is high. Also my lymphocyte is 47, atypical lymphocyte is 5, and eosinophil is 5. What causes this?

What could cause a low platelet, high eosinophil and a high vitamin b12?

Not much: High B12 is never worrisome. Low platelets, especially if below 100,000, need to be addressed with a physician who knows how to do a differential diagnosis and workup. Eosinophils over an absolute count of maybe 1000 should prompt a good history and physical exam and perhaps stool for ova and parasites. Labs are adjuncts to diagnosis and ranges are set to flag a few % of healthies. ...Read more
