Hi,thanks for query.In case of documented eosinophelia you need not to worry.Some times chronic coughing can itself leads to loss of appetite.take plenty of fluids,light diet and proper rest.Only for high ESR you need not to worry.Keep regular follow up with your doctor and in case of persistent problem you may need blood counts again and X-ray chest for diagnosis.bye.

Hi Dr. Pragnesh, One more query. Initially I had went to a DR AND he gave a course of antibiotics. There was no improvement. Then again I consulted another general physician and he too prescribed another course of antibiotics.This was in March this year. Then March end I took chest X ray, angio ,ecg,echo.Results were normal except for eusinophelia where the count was 55. Then that same dr gave me cetri plus.Still my appetite is poor,though I manage to eat twice a day.When can I resume my work.Presently I am taking full rest. How can I gain weight? Thanks dr.

Dr Pragnesh, one more doubt. The tests showed pericardial effusion near lungs and blood creatine level as 1.7.is creatine level normal? That time I was under antibiotic treatment for consecutive 2nd time. Now I have stopped all medicines as what my dr prescribed is over. Pl I hope you give me an early reply.thanks dr.
