Thanks for writing to us.

I understand you are looking for home remedies to treat / lower high red blood count; however there are no scientific evidences to prove any kind of home remedies work in treating such condition yet. I shall let you know if any such remedies are proved in treating high red blood count.

I am interested in knowing about your uncle’s condition and provide further opinion about its cause and treatment. Please provide the detailed complete blood cell count report and other clinical details of him. You can use the site's uploader (present below this page) to upload the reports. Do also provide the details of any medications which he is taking and does he have any pre-existing disease?

Hope this helps. I will be available for further assistance.

Awaiting your reply...

Best regards.

Dear Sir, three days ago I had my blood count and the number of my white blood cells was 9,3 (the maximum is 10), but what worries me is that the number of my eosinophils was much above the range: it was 1,26 (the range: 0,04 — 0,40). In percentage it is 14 % (the range: 0 — 5). I would also like to add that the rest of my blood results were perfect, nothing over the range. I am only concerned about my eosinophilia, should I be worried about it in a situation when everything else in my blood work is ok? Also, I suffer from ulcerstive colitis but I am in full remission. Thank you so much for taking your time reading it and I would greatly appreciate your reply, best regards, Cosima
