High Eosinophil Count. How to proceed ?

Hello, My mother (age 53) has very high Eosinophil count (900). This has resulted in breathing difficulty and/or cold/cough/ congestion in the past. She s usually prescribed some meds that reduce the count to about 650 after which she feels ok, but the root cause of the high Eosinophil count needs to be handled. As a side note, she is allergic to gluten (she sufferes severe stomach pain when she consumes anything that has gluten). Please advise on how to proceed, so there is a more permanent solution to this health issue. Thank you!

Same Eosinophil Count Problem I also had (~1150). I use to take EOFIL FORTE® - Diethylcarbamazine (DEC) for continuous one which helped me to maintain for Eosinophil Count for next two months. But it has never given me permanent cure.



As doctor use to say there is no treatment of allergy in Allopath, only it can be controlled.

Allopath (antibiotics) will not give permanent cure but we can improve our immune (resistance) to fight with any infection and can get permanent cure.



But permanent cure is possible believe me.

I had very serious problem and I am cured now with in two months.



I am engineer and working in pharmaceutical company as Manager.

My intension behind this write up is to give me self satisfaction by providing and helping people to get permanent cure.

If you need more information so mail me for more details you can reach me on “bharat80_shah@yahoo.com”

I will give you details of certified Nutritionist who cured me.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good Day
Regarding breathing difficulty, most patients with high Eosinophil count tend to have worms. Let her take a tablet of DEC, only after consulting with your Physician. For a permanent solution you require to do some tests which will find out what she is allergic to, like skin tests. She could be having hay fever also. After finding the cause of the allergy, it would be wise to avoid that allergen near her.
