How to check your Eosinophils levels with a home fingerprick blood test kit
What Is An Eosinophils Test For?
Eosinophils are a white blood cell responsible for allergic responses and fighting infections.
They should make up about 1 - 3% of your total white blood cell count.

What If Eosinophils Test Levels Are High?
Elevated levels of white blood cells in your blood can be an indicator that you have an illness or infection. Elevated levels often mean your body is sending more and more white blood cells to fight off infections.
What If Eosinophils Test Levels Are Low?
An abnormally low eosinophil count can be the result of intoxication from alcohol or excessive production of cortisol, like in Cushing's disease.
Low eosinophil counts may also be due to the time of day. Under normal conditions, eosinophil counts are lowest in the morning and highest in the evening
