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

Had a CBC done, and my absolute eosinophils level was 0 and status abnormal. What could cause the low level and and is it bad? All other WBC normal.

Stop worrying: Missing all the eosinophils means nothing. There are probably some but either the machine or the technician doing a by-hand count didn't spot any. This happens all the time. ...Read more

Eosinophil : Eosinophil count usually goes up if your body is fighting an infection or has an inflammatory disorder (such as an autoimmune disease). Basophil count also goes up if your body is fighting an infection or an allergan. If the rest of our counts are fine then this is likely no problem. ...Read more

Lymphocyte percentage high.Eosinophils high.Basophils absolute count low.MCH & MCHC low.Hair falling out of body.Feeling pins & needles.Is there link?

No: The percentage numbers on your CBC mean nothing apart from absolute counts. Low basophils never mean anything, and high eos matter only if they're way-high. You're anemic and losing body hair, somebody's put you on two vitamins for some reason without giving you a full explanation. You need a hematology, dermatology & maybe endocrine consult. There's no single cause. Insist on answers. ...Read more

What does it mean when your RBC count is high, hemoglobin, hematocrit, absolute eosinophils, mcv, mch, mchc are low and the RDW and platelet count high?

D/w your doctor: You should go to see your doctor and discuss the result of your blood work with your doctor. To answer your question will depend on how high is the high level mentioned here and how low is the low levels are here? I need to see the actual numbers to really interprete the result. There are many different things that can cause from non significant, iron deficiency to thalassemia trait etc. D/w md. ...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 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 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

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

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
