Hi sarah,
Welcome to Healthcaremagic,
Eosinophils are white blood cells, which are raised whenever there is allergic or parasitic infection in your body. 0% eosinophils means normal value, and there is no problem in your body. So do not worry and express gratitude as your blood test does not reveal any abnormality.
Feel free for any additional queries,
Wish you good health.

Eosinophils are a type of white blood cells . They are part of the body's immune system, and high in case of allergic condition, parasitic infestation, dermatitis. If you have 0% nothing to be worried. it is good that you dont have any allergic reaction, parasitic infestation,or any sort condition.
Hope it will help thank you

Hello there,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic. It is nothing alarming, if your blood tests are showing a 0% eosinophils. It is rather a pathology if it is raised, generally called as eosinophillia.Eosinophils' job is to fight parasites, allergic response, tissue inflammation, and immunity as well. And it is raised, when any of these reactions take place in the body. And your is well within normal limit. Take care.
