What are the dangers of a high eosinophil count?
I'm very very worried please let me know what care I should take regarding her diet and in general ? and what would the possible causes be. She went to a doctor when she was in her granny's house in a small town so I am not really sure about the doctor's expertise .Any insight on how to proceed further will be much appreciated . Thank you very much
levels go up in response to allergies
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
It is understandable and commendable to be concerned but the increase is not likely indicative of a serious condition.
Eosinophils are one type of white blood cell.
White blood cells are involved in the body's immune response to infection or inflammation from some source.
Eosinophils play a major role in allergies and the their levels are increased in persons who have a history of allergies.
With her history of allergies that you mentioned, this is the likely cause, they increase in response to allergies
If her allergies were under tight control , the level would decrease.
If she is aware of what she is allergic to then these items can be avoided if possible.
If she does not know, allergy testing may help. This can be in the form of blood tests or skin prick testing
Using antihistamines and nasal spray (if there is a sinus problem), may help to control the symptoms.
I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
