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.

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.

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
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
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
