Eosinophil Count Side Effects
Hard to say: More important that the percentage of eosinophils is the actual number of them in the blood. If your total white blood cell count is low, that % may be normal. If the total WBC is high, that % may equal a high absolute number of eos. In general, a slightly elevated % or absolute eosinophil count is most likely to be due to allergic disease. See your doctor or an allergist for more info.
Help please? What is the difference between absolute eosinophil count (aec) and normal eosinophil count?
Two sides same coin: A 'normal' eosinophil count will be the reference range a lab uses to compare your levels against. An absolute count is the calculated number of individual cells in your blood, this is usually calculated using the percentage of cells found during automated and/or manual cell differential counts on your blood. Your % and absolute counts may vary, but will compare to the 'normal' or reference range.
Abx don't Tx: Antibiotics don't usually treat high eosinophils. Eosinophils may be elevated due to allergic conditions, or (more common outside of the us) due to parasites. Anti-parasite drugs, if effective may lower eos count. Eosinophils associated with cancer or bone marrow issues is less common, but possible.
Yes....: An increased eosinophile count can however be noticed in allergic mediated asthma.
My abolute eosinophil count is 1980 cc/cumm. What is the reason for this and how to decrease the count. How many days to take to decrease count and how?
Not definite prob.: Eosinophils usually target parasitic infections and allergic stimuli. So if elevated, may be due to one of these issues. If no prior lab #s, may also just be normal for you. Should ask your dr if concern about infection or allergic response present. Should also repeat test in 5-10 days to see if on way up/down/stable #s, as might change.
My abolute eosinophil count is 1563 cc/cumm. What is the reason for this and how to decrease the count. How many days to take to decrease count and how?
What do you mean....: By low. Eosinophils are not terribly abundant to begin with, and most problems that arise related to eosinophils occur because of having too many, not too few. Their normal function in the immune system is to fight parasitic infection. Elevated eos are characteristic of atopic (allergic) conditions and a few other pathological states such as loefflers syndrome and adrenal insufficiency.
Clarify question: If your eosinophil count is normal, then no. If your eosinophil count is abnormal, then maybe. Eosinophils are often elevated in allergic conditions. You need to clarify question.
Hi doctor, my CBP shows Absolute eosinophil count as 800 where the range is between 20 - 500 cells/cumm. Please help me with condition?
Impossible to tell: In your area, parasite infection is a likely cause but so would an allergic condition. Sometimes this may cause no problem at all. Need more details.See 1 more doctor answer
