High Eosinophils

Hey Everyone,

I'm still not doing that well after my hospital stay. Having a hard time with bg crashing/eating and so on. Last night it was as if my stomach bug returned. My bg went to 250, ketones high again and I was very nauseated/runs with sore stomach after dinner. I managed to get it under control and finally fell asleep in the am. But when I woke up, stomach/bowels were very upset again.

I'm on only soft food and liquids now until I feel better. Bg was better today so far although not in the range I want it in. I seem to be losing more weight too, and I wonder how much of this is not eating enough etc. and the bug. I just start to feel sick to my stomach like I have to go to the bathroom/crampy when I eat solid food, but I can manage some hard boiled eggs, home made jello and yogurt/banana and bone broth.

I feel sick now after eating my last meal it kind of comes and goes in waves. I felt so nauseous when I got up I was ready to take zofran again but I was worried it may make me constipated since that can be one of the side effects. It's a lot better now overall and I made sure I ate 3 15-20 g carb meals today so I wonder if eating more is helping, even though it makes me feel sick on and off as I digest.

I looked at my blood work by my gp np from this week and my eosinophils are still high, they were high in the hospital too. The percentage is 21.1% and the total number is 1034. I wonder if I have an infection still or a parasite or some sort of allergic reaction going on? I did stool testing for parasites/bacteria but those results aren't back yet. Has anyone else had high eosinophils and what was the cause if you figured it out? Did they go back to normal eventually?

Thanks clutter, I think your link is the wrong one maybe- it leads back to my question. I have looked at the various causes. The most likely in my case seems to be an infection, parasite or allergy maybe. With all the stomach symptoms I'm guessing a virus, but it's almost like when I went to Cancun and picked something up there, not nearly as bad but worse in that with D it landed me in the hospital. When I went to Cancun a friend's father who was a doctor gave me something to take, an antibiotic as I recall, and my severe cramps started going away not long after. Nothing showed up in testing that time either at a clinic and they didn't do anything.

Thanks for this link clutter. I had a full blood count etc in December 2013, that indicates on the results high, but nothing was done. I just accepted the doctor saying they're normal. Ah those were the days!

Looking at them now I see they indicate anaemia and auto immune conditions. Just what I always suspected. :-)
