What does high eosinophils mean?

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

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 could it mean if you have low RDW, high momocytes, & High eosinophils on a lab result?

What could it mean if you have low RDW, high momocytes, & High eosinophils on a lab result?

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.

What does low #gran, low WBC & high eosinophils mean?

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

What does low #gran, low WBC & high eosinophils in your blood work mean?

Maybe nothing: Eos can correlate with drug sensitivity and environmental allergy. If the WBC and granulocytes are both low this is neutropenia, a dependent on the degree it could be serious. Need the actual numbers to take stab at it. ...Read more

Depends: The common causes of high eosinophil count are allergy and parasitic infestation. It would require investigation in-person to ascertain the cause and treatment.

Have had high eosinophils for over a year now. Most recent percentage was 6.5% (Eos. Auto). Should I get this checked out?

Dr. Ed Friedlander

I wouldn't: Usually the absolute eosinophil count is 500 or below in health. If you feel well and it's higher, it's your physician's call whether to check you for helminths or just watch you. A very high level is worth a hematology consult. Best wishes. ...Read more
