Hi! Your complete blood count picture reveals normal results except for eosinophil count , which is towards the higher end. You have not mentioned your age, moreover whether the complete blood count was done routinely or because of some underlying disease or disorder.This eosinophilia depicted in your report can be because of some parasitic infections,allergic disorder,asthma ,drug reactions, inflammatory conditions of skin like eczema, inflammatory disorders like celiac disease etc. Another important consideration is your family history.The other important finding in your report is the increased ESR but this ESR is a non specific test and done only in conjunction with other tests,as it only indicates the presence and intensity of inflammatory process. You should go in for allergy tests, other tests pertaining to auto-immune diseases, inflammatory diorders of bowel depending upon the physical examination and your signs and symptoms.Take care!

Hi, welcome to HCM. I am Dr. Das.
your blood test means you have relative lymphocytosis and eosinophillia. It means you may be suffering fron any chronic disease or viral fever. Eosinophillia measn you are suffering from any allergic condition.
