Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I just received my blood report, and my eosinophil count is 6.6%, the immature granulocyte count is 1.5% and, my immature granulocytes absolute count is 120%.

Kindly guide me.

Thank you.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thank you for the query. I can understand your concern. According to your statement, you have recently done some blood tests, and some of the blood parameters are elevated.

According to your investigation reports (attachments removed to protect patient's identity), your eosinophil percentage, immature granulocytes percentage, and immature granulocytes absolute percentage are above the normal range, and your vitamin D3 level is insufficient. Some other parameters are above average or below the normal range.

Elevated eosinophil percentage may result from allergies, asthma, infections like parasitic infestations, inflammation, drug allergy, autoimmune disorders, endocrine disorders, blood disorders, cancers, and many more.

Elevated immature granulocytes percentage may result from the early signs of infection and other health conditions like inflammation, stress, pregnancy, autoimmune disorders, blood or bone marrow disorders, carcinoma, etc.

Elevated immature granulocytes' absolute percentage may result from infection, inflammation, autoimmune disorders, cancer, etc.

One abnormal blood report does not mean the final diagnosis. Blood test results may vary from laboratory to laboratory due to collection techniques and reagents. I suggest you repeat blood tests after one month from two different laboratories concurrently and then compare the results of the two tests. If you find abnormal blood reports in two other laboratories, you should find out the exact underlying etiology for abnormal blood results and then treat them accordingly. Your doctor may suggest to undergo a bone marrow study for further evaluation and treatment purposes.

It is essential to know about your present complications, drug history, previous diseases, allergic conditions and, family history.

Do not be worried at all. Nothing has been confirmed yet.

In case of any other query, you can reach back.

Thank you.
