Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Your eosinophil 6 may be normal.
Please find out your absolute eosinophil count.
If that is less than 600, then it is taken as normal.
Your CRP is high.
Anion gap also high meaning excessive acid in the body.
This is possible with unerlying bacterial infection, kidney failure, liver disease.
Autoimmune conditions like lupus, connective tissue disorders also can cause these changes.
Please consult with a rheumatologist or a kidney specialist.
Thank you for sharing your concerns with us today. If you have any additional questions or need further clarifications, please do not hesitate to ask. I am here to answer them. I wish you good health. Regards, ***** *****
