What does high eosinophils mean?

Possibly allergy

Eosinophilia
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...

What does low neutrophil with high eosinophil mean?

Allergic Rxn, error,

Open-uri20121003-19958-fix7nc
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.

Eosinophil
You may get 'scoped and perhaps even end up with a diagnosis of eosinophilic gastritis, which will be managed. I can't address your pyuria. Labs are best discussed with your personal physician. Trusting you have nothing pointing to Hodgkin's which is a common cause of eosinophilia at your age. Best wishes.

What do elevated eosinophils in the blood mean?

May be a warning

Eosinophil4
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.

What does it mean if a child has elevated eosinophil levels?

Allergies

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?

Eosinophilia ---what does that mean ?

Eosinophils

Eosinophil_count
Increase in the number of eosinophils that are in your blood. These cells can be brought out by certain infections, allergies, or for somewhat unknown reasons. Eosinophilia can be problematic when the eosinophil count is above a certain level.

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

Maybe nothing

Eosinophil
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
