Absolute Eosinophil Count Overview

Eosiniphils are white blood cells that play an important role in the immune system. High eosinophil levels can be a sign of allergies, parasites, or autoimmune conditions. They fight off harmful invaders and play a role in inflammatory responses that improve overall immune function.
