Eosinophils Count 9
My husband age is 28 and he gets cold often. His blood test show eosinophils count 9.5% is this normal?
No.: The normal percentage of eosinophils should be 0 to 1%. I am not sure why he is getting cold, but causes of increased eosinophils in peripheral blood include allergies, drug reactions, and parasitic infections. Allergic conditions such as asthma, hay fever, and urticaria (hives) can all cause increased eosinophils. ...Read more
Ch. Rhinitis 8 yrs, IgE 867, eosinophil count 9, redness&itching during spt. No defect in nose. Is vasomotor rhinitis? Laser desensitization of nose is cure?

Would a high IG (.03 10*9/L) and high Eosinophils (.92 10*9/L) suggest any specific condition or disease?
Yes but: The diagnosis of a disease depends on the symptoms and physical findings. Tests are mostly used to confirm the diagnosis or assess the disease activity. If you do have very high IgG and persistently elevated eos (your are more compatible with allergic rhinitis and asthma) but are otherwise healthy, just monitoring would be sufficient. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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
Probably nothing: While a very high absolute eosinophil count (usually >1000-1500) for several months can lead to problems, a count of 526 by itself is unlikely to be significant. It can be caused by allergies, asthma, certain infections, reactions to medications, etc. Talk with your doctor about other symptoms you are having. If the count stays very for high for a long time, see a hematologist or immunologist. ...Read more
