My reading was a 12. I am wheezing a lot but my doctor just told me to take allergy meds. I am still wheezing after 3 weeks more. What does this reading mean?

Hello, Anon. Thank you for posting.
For the benefit of our readers, Eosinophilia is a higher than normal level of eosinophils. Eosinophils are a type of disease-fighting white blood cell. This condition often indicates a parasitic infection, an allergic reaction or cancer.
According to Medscape - the serum reference ranges of eosinophils are as follows: Eosinophils blood (%): 0.0-6.0 (This range may vary slightly in different laboratories.)
We cannot interpret test results for our readers, they should be discussed with your doctor. If you are still having significant wheezing, make an appointment for a follow-up. It might be that more time is needed, but it's best to be sure.
