How do I cure my allergy, suffering from allergic rhinitis for the last 10 yrs, with high eosinophil count constantly. I get bouts 2-3 times a week?

Long term affliction: The 3 primary approaches to allergy are: avoid -find out what & avoid, supress:use allergy med to reduce sx & retrain: use allergy shots to retrain your system not to react to offending agents. Allergy testing can give you an idea about your triggers & an allergist can advise you on allergy shots. Many otc allergy meds are available. If you smoke or have other irritant exposures they must also be. ...Read more

What would a high eosinophil count (21%, 1.41 10*3/uL) with a negative stool sample for parasites, indicate?

I have a low platelet count of 40 alongwith high eosinophil count & high platelet volume, ocassionally I feel tired and palpitation too. Please suggest?

Platelet problems: Low platelets (thrombocytopenia) are due to either decreased production or increased destruction of your platelets. A hematologist can assist you in finding the cause. This usually involves a bone marrow biopsy which is reviewed by a hematopathologist. A high eosinophil count can be seen with allergic conditions. See a board certified hematologist and start the workup. ...Read more

Is 9.5% eosinophil count high?

Is 9.5% eosinophil count high?

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

What could a constant reading of high eosinophil mean? I am celiac but have a strict die.

Depends: Parasitic diseases, allergic reactions to medication, and inflammatory conditions (asthma, eczema, arthritis) are among the more common causes of eosinophilia. So you could have celiac and one of these conditions. However, there is developing data to suggest a link between celiac disease and eosinophilic esophagitis, especially in the pediatric population. ...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 are rashes means with high eosinophil at 8%? with 14.5 hb 100% and RBC 5.71 Normal 5.5

Absolute eo's?: Percentage of eosinophils means nothing. Find out what the absolute eosinophil count. Be worried if it's above 1000. Be VERY worried if it's 1500 or more for more than a month. Especially, you'll want to rule out Churg-Strauss, dermatomyositis, trichinosis, Hodgkin's, cutaneous larve migrans, and a few others. I'm a lab specialist and these things are secondary to a good physical exam. Best wishes ...Read more

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

Low mpv (9.1), low neutrophil (34), high lymphocyte (48), high monocyte (9), high eosinophil (9). 17 yrs old li fraumeni female. Should I worry?

Low mpv (9.1), low neutrophil (34), high lymphocyte (48), high monocyte (9), high eosinophil (9). 17 yrs old li fraumeni female. Should I worry?

No: I often wish labs would not even report the percentages. Only the absolute values matter. The fact that you have li fraumeni means you must educate yourself about how to spot cancers early. This will greatly enhance your chances for a long, happy life. The only tip-off that a blood count will give is if there are abnormal cells circulating. ...Read more

Swollen glands.: It is hard to tell what is wrong without detailed history & physical examination, did she have fever at any time? How long these glands have been swollen? Are they localized or generalized, any enlarged spleen? Has she been failing to thrive since birth? It is obvious she was seen by her pediatrician, for the anemia & swollen glands she need a referral to a pediatric hematologist. Good luck. ...Read more

Have chronic mouth sores, leg pain in right leg, with light edema, normal cbcw dif, except high eosinophil%, high # neutrophil, and high # eosinophil?

Many choices: There are many possible causes for your symptoms. If this is new it could be a simple allergy or insect bite.

The appearance of the sores and duration of symptoms will help if you want to restate the question. ...Read more
