Hello,

mysticdoc :

This can be caused by the allergies.

mysticdoc :

The number is XXXXX elevated.

mysticdoc :

Is not concering.

Customer:

But I don't have any allergies that I know of. How can I rule out something more severe?

mysticdoc :

An allergy testing is better.

If your other blood counts are normal, this is unlikely to be serious.

mysticdoc :

You can see a hematologist.

My MCHC was low.

mysticdoc :

Bone marrow examination is definitive but not done unless the eos count goes up further.

mysticdoc :

that can be from anemia.

mysticdoc :

iron deficiency is common.

Could the low MCHC and high EOS be related in a common disorder?

mysticdoc :

this is unlikely.

mysticdoc :

You should get repeat blood test in a month.

mysticdoc :

If that is also high, then see a hematologist

Customer:

Thank you.

mysticdoc :
