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.

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.

How high?: Hypereosinophilia (>1500 measured on two separate occasions weeks apart) can lead to cardiac and other organ damage. If you fit this picture, then you really need to consult an allergist to find out the cause for the hypereosinophilia and be treated accordingly. If the number is just moderately elevated, then the cardiac issue is unrelated. ...Read more

I made CBC for just a marriage required test, but they found high Eosinophils , is it a serious problem, and how I can solve it? 32 years old
Mild Eosinophilia: Blood eosinophilia commonly reflects an allergic, infectious, or neoplastic process or can be secondary to medications. An absolute eosinophil count of 689 puts you in the mild range which is often benign and nothing to worry about. If you have a history of allergies (like chronic rhinosinusitis) then this could explain or level. Talk to your primary doctor for more details about test results. ...Read more

What is the indication of a low lymphocyte, low monocytes, low ferritin, high eosinophils, and high mch?
Iron deficiency: You most likely have iron deficiency. Percentages of lymphocytes, monocytes and eosinophils may not be pertinent. It is the absolute numbers of these cells that is important. The low ferritin likely represents iron deficiency. As a 39-year-old woman, menstrual blood loss and perhaps recent pregnancies may be the cause, but you should see your doctor to determine why you might be iron deficient. ...Read more
