Re: High Absolute Eosinophil Count
Shay my friend, Eosinophils are a type of white blood cells and an elevation can mean infection, or an allergic reaction, autoimmune diseases and can be a symptom of Cushing's as well. I assume this is why he said he wants to do further testing in that area. Sarcoidosis is an autoimmune disorder and I'm not sure about amyloidosis.
I'm sure he doesn't want you to get all worried and worked up, so he probably isn't mentioning much for that reason. I'm sorry that I don't know much more, but hopefully someone here will have more to offer. Hang in there darlin'. I know the waiting to find things out can be such a pain, but I'm not sure ther's anything more that you can do for now, but wait. If it's really bothering you, then I would call the office and speak to him or at least his nurse. Maybe that will put your mind a bit more at ease. Lots of prayers and hugs, CMP/MM
