Hi, thank you for reaching out to us.

We understand that you are wondering what is the meaning of high eosinophil count. Do not worry because we will try to clear off your thoughts and curiosity about it.

Eosinophil is a type of white blood cell and high number or count of eosinophil is called as eosinophilia and it is caused by number of factors. Some of the common causes of eosinophilia are:

  • Allergic reaction
  • Infection (mainly parasitic infection)
  • Blood disease and cancers
  • Autoimmune disease

However, we cannot rely based on investigation results only as the investigation results need to be supported by a proper history taking and physical examination evidence for a diagnosis to be made. We suggest you to speak with our doctors via online consultation so that we can help you further and better.

We hope that our answer helps you. Thank you.
