Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

Yesterday I gave 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 about this?

The laboratory report details include: 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.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

The eosinophils increase could be due to allergic conditions 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.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
