Had health check up. Reports says to have eosinophilia. What does that mean? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you today?
I had recently got an executive health check done
in my report it says I have mild eosinophilia
Please type your query
what does this mean
is it something to be concened about
along with the percentage of eosinophils
before I give you a concrete opinion
have you got the report with you?
5700- Total WBC
yes I have report
Ok you have a high percentage of eosinophils
What does that mean
Eosinophils are the type of white blood cells that increase when there is allergic reaction
or when you are genetically sensitive to allergies
They also raise when there is parasitic infeciont
so is it something to be concerned abou?
what is parasitc infecoint?
Since the WBC is within normal limits I would not be concerned or warn you for anything
then it is the time you should know that the test is correct
Most labs test in different ways
My packed cell volume and MCV is below the normal rage
Since PCV is also low it is most likely an Iron deficiency
What is the value?
Packed cell is 36.2
They are not too low to be worried
However concentrate on diet
that means Iron XXXXXXX diet
it also says that urine has pus cell
is this because i have less water?
20 to 22 per high power field may indicate infection
Do you have burning during urination?
no, not till now
i have also increased water intake
Are you married? If so do you have pain during intercourse?
Ok just take cranberry juice and increase water intake
a poor sample collection can result in such a mis result
If you do not have any symptoms the tests would not signify much
One more question i have i that in 2010 I had Pulmonary TB. I was comlplete okay by 2011. My chest x XXXXXXX is completely clear in this times Xray
however this eosinophilia should not be a cause of concern
Ok good. Keep these Xray safe for further reference in future
Eosinophilia may trigger some infections
And what is erythrocytes sedimentation rate
my after 1 hour is 20 mm
It is very non specific test done as a part of package and has least importance when you are healthy
20mm is ok
Ok, thanks doctor
