Hi doctor,

Yesterday I have given my blood sample for a random test. When reports came I got shocked. Is there any big health issue? Do I need to consult the doctor for this? See below lab report: RDW-CV 14.4 high 11.6-14.0 %, Eosinophils 9.1 high 1.0-6.0 %, Absolute eosinophil count 0.70 high 0.02-0.50 10^3/Ul, Thyroid profile ultra triiodothyronine (T3) 97.63 60.0 - 181.0 ng/Dl, thyroxin (T4) 6.60 3.20 - 12.6 µg/Dl and thyroid stimulating hormone (ultrasensitive) 7.244 high 0.55 - 44.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Regarding the eosinophils increase, it could be due to allergic condition or parasitic infection. So do you have any remarkable symptoms like for example coughing,sneezing, etc.?

As for the elevated TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone), it is subclinical hypothyroidism which you do not have to do anything about.
