Hello, My dad just had a blood test done earlier this week and his eosinophils level is really high. He has a colon and rectal disease and recently been getting treated for diabetes . I have read about some related diseases that causes it to increase but I want to know if his current diseases are the causes of it and how to mitigate the problem before he meets with his doctor. Thank you.

You have not mentioned what type of colon and rectal diseases
Your dad seems to be a recent diabetic under treatment.
Absolute eosinophil should be tested.
Up to 5% is normal.
