What to do if your child has an exaggerated number of eosinophils in the blood

Eozinfily Here are the simplest and most common example of an extremely life.Your child for a long time feeling bad for a long time or is not restored after diseases.Your doctor recommends to give blood for general analysis.The results of the clinical examination suddenly discover that some of the indicators are beyond the permissible limits.

Very often, parents are faced with such a situation - when suddenly it turns out that a child raised eosinophils in the blood.Before coming to the horror of such a diagnosis, we advise you to figure out what it means, what is the cause and which threatens the future.

blood and its composition

Composition of the blood Blood - is the internal environment of any organism.Its main function is to continuously circulating through the vessels and supply the cells with oxygen.

blood formula includes:

  • plasma
  • formed elements, which in turn are divided into red cells, pla
    telets and white blood cells
White blood cells are part of the immune system of any organism (in this case - growing).
Therefore, we consider them in more detail.They are divided into two groups:
  • agranulocytes (lymphocytes and monocytes)
  • granulocytes (neutrophils, basophils, eosinophils)

And now, after a thorough analysis of the information received, it is clear that, if a child has increased eosinophils, then there is a problemof the immune system.And this, of course, have to fight and recover the number of eosinophils to the required health standards.


Blood test eosinophils are formed in the bone marrow.After complete ripening within several hours of circulating blood.After that penetrate into the lungs, gastrointestinal tract, skin cells.Their life between 10 and 14 days.

for children under 13 years, the number of eosinophils should be 0.5? 7 percent, and for the older - 0.5? 5 percent of the total white blood cell count (or otherwise, 0.02 ± 0.3 x109 / L).

If they raised, the child diagnosed:

  • Allergic reactions (related, as a rule, with the deterioration of the overall environmental situation).An indicator of the child's tendency to allergies (eg, seasonal) is a cationic protein of eosinophils.
  • catching the worms (occurs at the household level and not at all uncommon in the children's collective).Upon contact with the worms (and their larvae) eosinophils are destroyed simultaneously killing parasites secrete enzymes.
Thus, if eosinophils increased, it can be argued that the child's body is exposed to intoxication and therefore greatly weakened.

Other indicators

Monocytes in blood not only cationic protein, and monocytes possible to establish the presence of the child's body in a variety of worms.There
reasons unknown to modern medicine, in which during helminthic infestation levels of eosinophils kept within acceptable but significantly increased monocytes.These indicators in the blood should also be a concern of parents and doctors.

number of monocytes adult (and children over 13 years of age) is 3? 11 percent of the total white blood cell count (0.1? 0.6 x 109 / l), and for the younger - 2? 12%.

Monocytes - the largest single-cell white blood cells - are formed in the bone marrow.
reaching maturation, circulate about 70 hours of blood.Then penetrate tissues of various organs and are converted into cells which kill bacteria and promote regeneration.

If the level of monocytes increased, it indicates the presence of a child infectious diseases (infection of different types of worms).

Symptoms of poisoning organism

when increased eosinophils and monocytes, the characteristic features are:

  • Fatigue The boy
  • mental decline
  • Headache
  • Acne nutsedge
  • Fatigue during exercise

In case you observe these symptoms, you should do a blood test to establish the exact number of eosinophils and monocytes.And if their level increased, the doctor prescribe the necessary treatment.


The doctor takes blood from a child So outpatient studies have shown that your child has elevated white blood cells (monocytes and eosinophils).If you encounter such a situation, it is necessary to establish its cause.The most common two - or a manifestation of allergic reaction, or the presence of worms in the body.

Both cases are not critical, but require early intervention.

should immediately withdraw parasites spend detoxification and restore the disturbed immune system.

Medical practice allows for such activities as soon as possible.And parents can only from time to time to control the level of white blood cells - elevated or not.
