Thank you for your question.

0.9% basophils usually does not mean much.

It may indicate that you have a history of allergies or you may have had a viral infection recently but it is not something that I would worry about too much at all.

This session is open for any further questions that you may have. The only way I am credited here by the website and the money that you have deposited is released is when you rate me.
Therefore, I would appreciate a rating when you are done asking.
Kindest regards

What kind of Viral infection could this have been.
The lab results also had some other items that were either high or low.
Everything else was within normal ranges, except for my Vitamin D which was at 22 which is low.
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 1 year ago.

All these are minor abnormalities which I would not worry about.

Any viral infection can cause it i.e. a respiratory infection.

Let me know if you have more questions.
