Hi XXXXXXX

I have gone through your reports.

They all are perfectly within normal range.

I wonder why you are specifically worried about your eosinophil count.
I guess these were routine blood tests due to your pregnancy, and not because you had a specific health problem.

Eosinopenia, or a low eosinophil level, does not, in and of itself, represent a cause for alarm.

Some people with extremely low eosinophil levels lead quite normal lives. However, eosinopenia may indicate the presence of infection or an inflammatory process in the body.

Eosinophils are a type of white blood cells that are part of the body's natural immunity.

Pregnancy is an immunosuppressed condition, hence, normally also, during pregnancy, the eosinophil count may be low without any underlying disease.

Also, various laboratories have their own reference values
Your value falls in the normal range, considering international standards.

Am attaching a reference link below for your comparison

Also, please remember never to be swayed or worried by laboratory values, as there are lots of fluctuation and variation in values. They are always to be taken in conjunction with the clinical picture of a patient.
And if you do not have any sign or symptom, then there is nothing to worry.

Take care.

Hi,
I recently had my GP show concern over a series of blood tests taken as a bases line.
I am 54yo - resting heart rate 44bpm typical blood pressure (taken each morning) is aroun 110 over 67-74ish - her concern was with my neutrophils being so very low. i am exceptionally healthy and do not get bacterial or any type of infection. Have a relatively good immune system. Had a doc check this out about 20yrs ago and they even did a bone marrow test - do not know the results as I got bored with the whole process when noone knew why my neutrophils were low.
I also had an exercise induced cardiogram about 10yrs ago and that was fine.
(Q) - Is there any known link between neutrophils and heart disease. I ask because if i am honest there are times when extremely overtired that I feel a like my heart is labouring and it is typically when it is going as low as 41 sometimes?
I exercise 5 mornings per week and weigh 62.5 kgs. I have polynesian in me and hence weigh heavier than some - I am 5'4" or about 164cm.

I am 63 yrs of age height is 176 cm weight is 67 KG and I had problem of urine retention in bladder.As suggested by my urologist I have undergone retrograde urethrogram on 26/5/11. I was put on Tab Percin 600(Prulifloxacin) from 25th onwards one tablet perday for seven days.From eight day onwards I have high fever, a blood hematology shows WBC Count 15.67,Neutrophils 81.0%, Lymphocytes 8.5%,basophils 2.0%.All these reading before urethogram was well with in limits.My question is why Percin didnot work to regulate infection and which family of antibiotic should be taken now to control infection.
