Probably normal: Low eosinophils are often normal. It is impossible to say in an individual case like yours without a full history.

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.
