What Does Elevated Eosinophils Mean
Allergies: It usually means that the child has allergies such as dust mite or pollen etc. It can also be an indicator of a parasite infection. If there is diarrhea better get him/her tested for parasites. Have you been out of the usa? Or do you have a lot of contact with dogs, cats etc? ...Read more
May be a warning: An absolute eosinophil count above 500, especially in the morning, deserves some attention. Despite "pop" wisdom, it's seldom a warning about allergy, and if your allergies are acting up, you'd know anyway. Anything from worms to hodgkin's to the eosinophil family of diseases to nothing-at-all can do this. Again, the history & physical exam is your key. Best wishes. ...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
Typically: Nothing. It is a normal finding.Get a more detailed answer ›
How high?: An eosinophil count slightly above normal may be due to allergies, asthma, reactions to medications, certain infections, etc. A very high count (>1000 or so) for several weeks to months could be a sign of disorder of the immune system or bone marrow, or certain parasitic infections. Talk with your doctor about your symptoms, and see a hematologist or immunologist if your counts are very high. ...Read more
Possibly allergy: Eosinophils are one type of white blood cell. These cells are created in the bone marrow and released into the blood. These cells can be increased in several settings, such as allergies (to drugs and other things), in response to some infections (especially parasites), and in some inflammatory and neoplastic (potentially malignant) blood disorders. See a doc who knows your clinical setting... ...Read more
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
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

H E S: Hyper Eosinophilic Syndrome, (HES), kind of rare, other possibilities as leukemia may be the case, again those are just mere numbers, can't be read out-of-context, more clinical information, history and physical examination are important, see an Immunologist/allergist and a hematologist for assessment, best to go to a Tertiary Care facility, ask your doctor about referral / coordination of care ...Read more
Several diagnoses: Several possibilities: normal response to infection, autonomous over production of these cells. Need thorough physical examination and additional lab studies. ...Read more
No: Eosinophils are part of the immune system that react in allergy situations. They are typically elevated when there are drug reactions or parasite infections. The lab finding that is seen in carbon monoxide exposure is elevated carboxyhemoglobin. ...Read more
I have had high Eosinophil for a few years that were only slightly elevated. Recently increase to 93. lab Range 2-11µg/L. Is this really high?
Confusion here: Eosinophils are not measured in micrograms per liter. Something's wrong. Get your physician to sort it out for you. ...Read more
Manual diff. I have 45% Neutrophils, (Abn: L) and Eosinophils % 10 (Abn: H) I also have a RBC Morphology 1+Tear Drop, 1+ellipto what does this mean?
Maybe normal, or not: To put this into context also requires knowing your total WBC (white blood cell count). Perhaps you have a perfectly adequate number of neutrophils - a "normal range" is just a population average. Eosinophils help fight certain types of infection (parasites), but can also be high in allergic disease, and other rare conditions. Teardrop RBC is interesting. Please see a hematologist. ...Read more
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
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
Possible infection: There are many causes of elevated eosinophil counts. However, is the eosinophil count elevated in raw number or just as a %. If you have a low WBC and a normal eosinophil count, it may appear to be higher than it actually is. Various disorders can cause increased eos. Parasites, allergies, and some rheumatologic diseases can all cause elevated results. ...Read more
Nothing: Lab values without clinical information mean nothing whatever. Low RDW never means anything. Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside. If you feel well, forget the monos, and if the eos are below 2000, get retested next year. Now, if you are SICK. .. these are great keys to help find out the cause. But don't treat numbers. Best wishes ...Read more

I received my lab results with absolute eosinophils at 0l (reference range 15-500 ul), bilirubin total at 1.3 h (range 0.2-1.2), what does this mean?
Nothing: When only a few cells are counted, as is the norm when nobody's really worried about them, zero is fine. Bilirubin 1.3 means nothing apart from a clinical picture. The reference range is designed so that several % of healthies fall above it, and many folks have gilbert's non-disease in which it's always up some. Don't treat labs, treat people. Relax. ...Read more
